Have you ever made a deal with God?  You know get me out of this and I will _______!  You are in good company.  Martin Luther did.  King David did.
What makes prayer effective?  Thoughts at DTTB.
Luther found himself stranded in a storm and promised God if he saved him Luther would join the monastery.  God did; Luther did.  We have the reformation as a result.

David cried to the Lord that if He saved him David would keep God’s commandments.  God did; David tried and as a result we have the Psalms.

In Psalm 119 David recounts this experience and he links his cry for deliverance with the Word of God.  Read 145 – 148.  David connects the Word of God to his prayer.

One of my takeaways from this is that to be effective in prayer I have to both be in and obedient to the Word of God.
