Yes God answers prayer  sometimes instantly other times it takes time. Daniel chapter 9 daniel prayed and fasted for 21 days after which we are told that an angel, Gabriel to be precise was sent to him and he told that that his prayer was answered the first day he started praying, but to Daniel it only came 21 days later because the gabriel was held up by the prince of Persia but daniel's continual prayer helped the him get through. 
The content of daniel's prayer is also to be noted because the prayer was not just about himself but about the people and it was not a selfish one the prayer was in line with God's Word as we are told in the first verse that daniel understood by the books that the time of being in captivity was up so he went in prayer over it. 

When peter was imprisoned by Herod we are told that earnest prayer was made for him, hence God sent an angel to release him instantly i would say seeing rhoda's expression although it took a day or so.Zechairah and elisabeth as well as abram and sariah had prayed for a child long before they had them. 
Even us when became born again God answered us for salvation and continues to answer us as the bible says we receive grace upon grace. Amen.
