Whenever you make a supplication for another believer and he is not present, an angel will say ‘and same to you.’
“The supplication that gets the quickest answer is the one made by one Muslim for another in his absence.”
Reported by: Abu Daw’ud and Tirmidhi
The Prophet (saws) has said in a Hadith, narrated by Abu Huraira (Radiallahu taalaa anhu):
Make Dua and be assured of being answered, and know that Allah does not answer a Dua from a careless heart which is not concentrating.
Source: Tirmidhi in article by, Abdul Malik Mujahid
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“The slave will receive a response so long as his dua does not involve sin or severing of family ties, and so long as he is not hasty.” It was said, “What does being hasty mean? ” He said: “When he says, ‘I made dua and I made dua, and I have not seen any response,’ and he gets frustrated and stops making dua.”
Narrated by: al-Bukahari, 6340; Muslim, 2735.
It was narrated that Faddalah ibn ‘Ubayd said:
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) heard a man making dua after his prayer, but he did not send blessings upon the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “This man is in a hurry.” Then he called him and said to him or to someone else: “When any one of you has finished praying (and makes dua), let him start by praising Allah, then let him send blessings upon the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), then after that let him ask for whatever he wants.” Al-Albani said: it is a saheeh hadeeth.

It is very important that you NOT just rely on others to make a Du’a for you. You must ALWAYS ask Allah for yourself and ask Him directly when praying and at other times prescribed in the Sunnah.
