Before I answer a question, I would like to first define what is the meaning of the word supplication? supplication means to call upon Allah subhana wa Taala the Almighty and glorious with devotion with sincerity and solidarity, and with complete submission
and a beloved prophet masala, some said. It's mentioned in say, hadith of tirmidhi Hadith number 2616. A Beloved Prophet masala slim said that there are three gates of goodness.
The first is
fasting, which is a shield from the hellfire. Second is a sucker, that is charity that charity extinguishes sin, same as water extinguishes fire. And the third is standing in prayer, in the late hours in the night.
So you have realized there is a relationship between supplication prayer and fasting. And alas mantra says in the Quran, in Surah Baqarah. Chapter number two, was number 186.
Allah says, that if my servants asked the concerning me, tell them, I am indeed close to them. And I listened to the prayer of every applicant, and tell them that if they listen to my call,
willingly, and if they believe in me, I will take them to the state path. Here we realize the closeness of Allah subhana wa Taala along with his believers, his servants and slaves, and he says, if my slaves if my servants, my servants mean the closeness that the human beings have the last minute Allah, if they asked me concerning me, tell them I am indeed close to them. It shows the closeness between the believers and a last minute Allah and he says, I will respond to them.
And Allah further says no Quran in Surah Nisa, chapter number four was the military to but us from the bounty of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

The Prophet said that Allah subhanaw taala emancipates
the slaves from the Hellfire
during every hour, when the fast is broken, and does this every night. And a beloved prophet also said, it's mentioned say hadith of say a turkey
added number nine ated.
Allah subhanaw taala ransomes the Muslims from the Hellfire every day and night in the month of Ramadan, and he answers the prayer of every Muslim every day and night in the month of Ramadan. So because Allah subhanaw taala he listens to the application of the person who first and to get the special status. That is the reason Ramadan is called as the month of supplication
