I wouldn't consider myself religious, and have only prayed for two things in my life (both involving medical situations, including once when my good friend of mine went into a coma). I can't say as I was praying to anyone or anything in particular, but it was more so to keep hope that things would work out in the end, and thankfully, both times they did.

That being said, whether or not you're religious, prayer can be effective. I've always felt that it's along the same line as meditation- it's a great tool that can boost your own faith and morale, even if others find it useless. It also gives you time to reflect on what's been happening and what's important to you, and I commend those that take time out of their day to do it, even if I don't myself.
