Following the chart position, Logan spoke to the Irish Independent saying "For a person who has been around as long as I have, this is incredible. I feel like the singer Bill Nighy plays in the film Love Actually, the guy who tops the charts by accident."
Padraig Muldoon from WiwiBloggs said “"Prayin'" is completely different to his previous work. It's an anthemic rock song, which you could easily imagine being performed to a packed stadium. After a few listens it's very hard not to sing along. And despite its somber themes of death and loss it is oddly uplifting.”
