How Prayers produce their effects:
Venerable Geshe-la says:
Many religious people, whether Buddhist or non-Buddhist, understand the efficacy of prayer through their own experience. Prayer is by nature intention or aspiration, and so it is essentially a mental action. The words of a prayer help us to concentrate our mind and evoke faith, but they are not the actual prayer itself. Indeed, we can pray without reciting any words. The important thing is to concentrate without distraction on the meaning of the prayers as we recite them.
Because we are Buddhists we make prayers in front of an image of Buddha or a visualized assembly of Buddhas, regarding them as living Buddhas. Prayers made in front of such holy beings have great power to achieve their desired effect.
