Depends upon the Will of the person being prayed for, I believe. Prayers (or spells) cannot interfere with Free Will.
For instance, If a Christian wants to pray for me to "Find Jesus", ain't gonna happen. For it is not my Will to be a Christian...if it was, I'd be one! But I am quite happy in my Pagan ways. But just like you cannot (should not) cast a spell (or say a prayer) to make someone love you, you cannot pray (or cast) that someone's Will be changed. That's totally unethical.
to be continued...

A Christian wouldn't ask a pagan for spiritual guidance or for prayer. The two are total opposites ...
On the other hand, a Christian can and does pray for those who do not believe in-or have any use at all for God. Why? Because they are lovingly concerned for them and want them to live wholly and fully. FYI, God doesn't need an unbeliever's "permission" to work in their lives. A Christian's prayer will shield that unbeliever from the wrath of the evil one while God blesses them according to the Christian's prayer request.
