Prayer toward God can be for followings:
- help in going through hard times (as you agree)
- Changing human heart
- Healing and deliverance
- Financial help
- Basic need
- ect ...
God is still in the business doing all the above.
I experience those (above) countless time.
I recall asking HIM for new winter boots over a year ago as they were getting old.
Some time after, there where a bag containing boot on my door knob!
Another incident about about asking HIM "changing human heart, there was certain church minister that kept tormenting my mind. After asking God to deal with that minister, I got set free from that instantly and I am not making this up. Believe me when I say that!
Regardless if God will do what being asked for or not, we should never and never undermine or underestimate what He can do or cannot do!
Since topic deal with prayers and to sum what I said all the above, I hope that youtube link will increase your faith:
Nothing is impossible to God to those that believe

That's why it's important praying for leaders from all over regardless of their wills!
Believe me or not, I am not arguing with you anymore!

I am open to debate, heated or not, what I am not open to is personal attacks. I don't believe we've ever had bad arguments, it's give and take. You just said so yourself, you totally agree about prayers not killing virus. This pandemic is our punishment for not taking it seriously despite all the warnings and for not being prepared
