We are all neighbors- there is no God or higher being over anyone else. The materialization of a prayer comes from you resonating with a vibrational match of the frequency that you are giving off. You just have to know and believe that something is yours and the more you believe it, the faster it materializes.
Since we all exist at different points in time it is great to be able to communicate with each other; that will assist the evolution of us all. The one thing that we all share is the air- when you pray they go into the air. It then resonantes with a vibrational match. If you are that match- you pull that experience to you like a magnet.
To keep the air pure you should pollinate it with love - it trumps everything.
