It is not about reading, you can read for days with sleepless nights with nothing to show for it when you are reading in the wrong direction, wrong way, wrong reason, wrong direction,  wrong attitude, but prayers does the trick, just do your best, give him your alland let him do his part, and you surely would be victorious.
