Not actually. Certainly prayer can boost wealth, for the Lord said "seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." (Matthew 6:33)
I dare say that if you are a true holy living born again believer and ask God in faith for funds to help others, or for a valid need, and seek to make all things work for the salvation of souls to God's glory, and are a good steward of what God gives, then you will see God "boost wealth" to that end, and which is a sign of His favor.
But that is not what 5 star hotel prosperity teachers are about, unless they are on the receiving end.
Nor is prosperity necessarily a sign of God's favor, yet neither is poverty. But prosperity (even in talent) is usually a curse in effect, in that it usually blinds the person to his dire spiritual need for redemption in Christ.

Regionally, the South still qualifies as the most Bible-minded. The top ranking cities are all Southern cities. This includes the media markets for Knoxville, TN (52% of the population are Bible-minded), Shreveport, LA (52%), Chattanooga, TN (52%), Birmingham, AL (50%), and Jackson, MS (50%). Other markets in the top 10 include Springfield, MO (49%), Charlotte, NC (48%), Lynchburg, VA (48%), Huntsville-Decatur, AL (48%), and Charleston, WV (47%). http://cities.barna.org/americas-most-and-least-bible-minded-cities-2/
The least Bible-oriented markets include a mix of regions, but tend to be from the New England area. Easily the lowest Bible-minded scores came from Providence, RI (9%) and Albany, NY (10%). The most Bible-minded markets are five times more likely to have residents who qualify as Bible-minded than is true in these two Northeastern cities. ^
None of the cities in the bottom 10 break 20%, where even one in five people could be considered Bible-minded. The New England area is home to most of the markets in the bottom 10 Bible-minded cities, including Burlington, VT (16%), Portland, ME (16%), Hartford, CT (16%), Boston, MA (16%), Buffalo, NY (18%) and New York, NY (18%).
The remaining markets in the bottom 10 are primarily in the West and include San Francisco, CA (16%), Phoenix, AZ (17%), and Las Vegas, NV (18%). Cedar Rapids, IA (18%) being something of an outlier. ^
The Eastern United States is the only region of the country where Protestants account for less than half (44.1%) of the population. Catholics are the best represented religious tradition in this region; claiming 35.1% of the population. 5.5Baylor Institute for Studies of Religion - American Piety in the 21 Century September 2006 .
