Though it is not how long you pray but how well you pray that matters, you still need adequate and quality time to pray fervently. When you have enough time, you will be able to sufficiently plead your case before God, (Isaiah 43:26). Elijah was not in a hurry when he was praying fervently for rain to fall. He prayed till there was a sign in heaven, 1 Kings 18:42-44). You also need to pray till you have peace within you.
2. Quiet place
It is difficult to concentrate in a noisy environment. You need quietness all around you and also within you for you to pray effectively and receive answer from God.

An enhancer like a quiet place makes all the difference.
3. Knowledge of the word of God
God listens for His words when we pray and He is committed ONLY to His words, (1 John 5:14-15). He watches over His Words to perform it. Therefore, you need to know what God's word says about your prayer point and say them back to Him. Search the scriptures for God's words concerning that issue, meditate on them and then pray them. This is one tool you must engage for speedy results
"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him", (Hebrews 11:6, KJV). It takes enhancer like faith to pray fervent prayer. You need to believe that God will answer your prayer. Faith is like a magnet that draws God's attention to your prayers.
"For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil", (I Peter 3:12, KJV). It is the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man, that avails much. Have a right stand with God, pray fervently and God will answer your prayers.
