When you pray to invisible power you asking for Divine Intervention. You are saying the situation you are in is beyond your control and you are asking for needed guidance and support. The moment you receive an opportunity, your life is going to change. Your pray is answered. And all goes well again.
If you believe in a God/Goddess/Spirit Guides/Higher Power then you know the divine power listens to a lot of desperate cases every day.
No matter ones faith, when we pray do we not expect to be heard?
Never underestimate the power of prayer. Prayer alters lives. Prayer altered my parents life. My mom many, many moons ago belonged to a prayer group. My parents were close to loosing the farm. The prayer ladies came together and prayed. That week everything changed for the better. To this day, my parents live on that farm. When my sister's hand was asked for in marriage there were many life altering decisions that needed to be made. She loved the man she is with but a major move came into play. She prayed for a sign. And a huge sign was given. My life was altered with prayer. I like my life!
If you feel you are in a dire state take a moment to pray to God/Goddess/Spirit Guides/Higher Power. If you do you will open yourself to a fresh opportunity - you will go with the flow of change.
