To pray is to Appeal, apply or ask.

The word to pray is defined as an "address a solemn request or expression of thanks to a deity or other object of worship."

From the Latin precari ‘entreat.’ "ask someone earnestly or anxiously to do something".

In the New Testament we see the word prayer from proseuchomai[1] meaning to solemnly request something for an advantage from an authority which has the power to grant a benefit.

An application is "a formal request to an authority for something."

Who should you be applying to, or appealing for aid from or asking for benefits from?

Should that be our Father in heaven or the Fathers of the earth.

From the God of Creation or the "gods many" of the world?
