Sam prays to God for a sign.

While prayer is used by those of religious faith, it is also used as a means of communication between humans, angels, and God. Nephilim can also receive prayer. Long before they knew of the existence of angels, Sam prayed every day.

"Castiel, we need you. It’s important. Cas, we found something. It’s this gold box. Apparently Nazis were after it back in the day, someone opened it and their face melted off. I think it’s – ready for this – the Ark of the Covenant. Yeah. So…"

8.16 Remember the Titans

Some time after Sam completes the first of the trials to close the Gates of Hell, Dean prays to Castiel to watch over Sam.

"Cas, you got your ears on? Listen, you know I am not one for praying, 'cause in my book it's... it's the same as begging. But this is about Sam, so I need you to hear me. We are going into this deal blind... and I don't know what's ahead or what it's gonna bring for Sam. Now, he's covering pretty good, but I know that he is hurting, and this one was supposed to be on me. So, for all that we've been through, I'm asking you... you keep a lookout for my little brother, okay? Where the hell are you, man?

So whatever you did or didn't do, it doesn't matter, okay? We'll work it out. Please, man, I need you here... Screw it. Okay, listen up. This one goes out to any angel with their ears on. This is Dean Winchester... And I need your help. The deal is this – Linwood Memorial Hospital... Randolph, New York. The first one who can help me gets my help in return... and you know that ain't nothin'. Hell, it's no secret that we haven't always seen eye to eye. But you know that I am good for my word. And, uh, I wouldn't be asking if I wasn't needing, so..."

9.03 I'm No Angel

The now-human Castiel overhears a woman praying in a church for the angels to heal her husband Mike. Castiel asks what she would do if she knew that no one was listening and God has left. She tells him that his lack of faith doesn't cancel out hers, and that someone is listening.

Castiel, seeking aid, tries many variations of prayer in hopes that God will listen to him. His calls for help are answered when the angel Muriel arrives at his motel room door.

"Okay. I'm... unfamiliar with this end of the process. Of course, no one may be listening, um, but I – I do need assistance. I have questions, and there seem to be no answers. I... I wouldn't presume to ask for help if I weren't desperate, but I need help. I'm lost. I need your guidance. I don't know how humans do it."

And if I have to die, I've made my peace with that, but... Please. Dean deserves better. Dean deserves a life. There are people out there, good people, who are going to suffer because of me, and I am not asking you to clean up my mess. Hell, I don't even know if you're out there, but... If you are... And if you can hear me, I, um... We need your help, God. We need to know there's hope. We need a sign."

11.07 Plush

Sam is in his room at the Bunker kneeling in front of his bed with his back to his open door, praying to God.

"So, uh... on the off chance that you're actually listening, uh... Uh, I gotta be real honest. The visions aren't making a whole lot of sense to me. Truth is... I don't know what's what. Please. What are you trying to say?"

You said… You said the earth would be fine because it had me… and it had Sam, but it’s not, and we’re not. We’ve lost everything. And now you’re gonna bring him back. Okay? You’re gonna bring back Cas, you’re gonna bring back Mom, you’re gonna bring ‘em all back. All of ‘em. Even Crowley. ’Cause after everything that you’ve done, you owe us, you son of a bitch. So you get your ass down here and you make this right, right here and right now. Please. Please help us."

14.07 Unhuman Nature

After finding out what happened to his family, and killing Frank Kellogg, Nick gets drunk and begins praying to Lucifer for help in removing his pain. His bond as his former vessel somehow awakens Lucifer in the Empty.

"All right... I'm not very good at this, but the priest said it would help, so, um... I'm gonna try. I say that I do the terrible things I do because I couldn't find who killed Sarah and Teddy. And that once I did, I'd be free of this darkness and this rage... but I lied. Truth is... I like doing these things, and I don't want to stop. I'm bonded to you and what you are. I mean, it's -- it's -- It's how you first found me. I don't know who I am if I'm not you. No consequences. No pain. No sorrow. I want that back. I want it back. I don't want to feel now what I didn't feel then. Where are you? Where are you? Help me. Help me."
