The word believe is defined as having confidence in the truth, the existence or the reliability of something, without being supported by facts. In order for prayer to truly work, we must believe that ‘something’ is listening to us. If there is no one or nothing listening to us, than how do we expect our prayers to be answered? We can not hold a conversation over the phone if the person does not answer.
“Trust in The Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” – Proverbs 3:5
We need to believe that we are praying to be heard. What we believe will shape our reality, so if we can start to trust in The Lord and believe that he is working in our lives for the greater good, than we are ready to pray.

- John 3:16
