While in high school I ran a prayer experiment to piss off my mother who could be classified as a evangelical nutcase. I didn't study at all for an upcoming test, only prayed for a week that I would pass and maybe get an A. The results weren't good for the power of prayer to say the least.

Jesus also said ask and you shall receive, he didn't put any qualifiers on it either, all you need is faith the size of a grain of Mustard. Also, don't forget the story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal where God is put to the test and responds. The Bible contradicts itself painfully often.
To me the most interesting aspect of modern Christian prayer is that it often takes place in public, in Church for instance, yet Jesus directed his disciples directly to pray in secret and detested the hypocrites who prayed in public in the Temple.
