Christians: when you are called for a 'Prayer Request'.. and you agree, how do you do it?

how do you pray for that person if you don't know him/her? let's say 'Mickey Mouse' ask for your prayers... what do you do? email him for more information about this person, or do you just simply pray: 'Lord, please help Mickey Mouse' ? and if this is the way yo do, does it really works? i... show more how do you pray for that person if you don't know him/her?
let's say 'Mickey Mouse' ask for your prayers... what do you do?
email him for more information about this person, or do you just simply pray: 'Lord, please help Mickey Mouse' ? and if this is the way yo do, does it really works? i mean, by giving the Lord just a nickname? since he knows it all

assuming this person is not one of your contacts, of course

or do you simply answer in the request 'yes i will pray for you' and you simply forget about it?

this is a serious question, i am really curious about it...
