The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]. James 5:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Notice it says “heartfelt” and “persistent”
There is no sense in praying unto Jehovah if your heart is not into it. To Him it sounds like the braying of a jackass, loud and annoying and smells like a pigs fart, foul and disgusting.
Think of it, if someone came up to you and tried to sweet talk you into something (con you) would it not be very offensive to you?
Think of how annoying it is to listen to one of those automated messages while waiting to get in touch with a real person on the telephone (for example when calling the bank). Does it not drive you bonkers? Then how do you think Jehovah feels when you are like an automated machine spewing out the same prayers with no emotion to them?
Now the child of Jehovah who prays from the heart will always be guaranteed an audience with our Heavenly King.
When we persistently pray for His will to be done in our lives and pray from the heart for His divine help with brothers and sisters we are praying for, that gets His attention and He is joyfully going to answer those prayers (although it will be done in His time and in His way).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for the supreme privilege of always being able to talk with You. The times when we just enjoy each others companionship without any problems is the time I relish the most.
It is an honour to petition You for those within our family.
Thank you that You teach me to trust You and to become more patient as I confidently await Your answering of my petitions unto You.
I praise You in the name of He who always took time to commune with You during His hectic schedule while He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen
Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing
