Praying is the wisest and most powerful action.
When I pray silently for possessing a computer, I don’t sit idly to wait for the postman to deliver that gift from God, although my daughter is giving without my telling her about my wish.
But praying is not begging for things we know or we need.
More than that praying is asking God for innumerable blessings and boundless bliss as He promises to His children in Prayers and Meditations revealed by His Messenger.
Accepting religion is only the first step on admission into divine education. Living the true life of God’s children is quite a long process and a lofty adventure. His Teachings are provisions for most correct guidance and most assured protection.
In the olden days, only kings were considered as children of God.
Today, with New Revelation, we know more clearly that all human beings are children of God, created in His image and likeness. This is far greater than former kings.
Yes, prayer is education to be real kings under the Supreme King.

Abdul-Baha says:

The Messenger of God is often sad, but His sadness does not come from causes relating to Himself. He longs that a soul become illumined, but the soul prefers darkness; He yearns to change the ignorance of the people into knowledge, their error into guidance, their insincerity into truth, their faithlessness into firmness; but people prefer their own shadows and He who manifests God becomes sad over the negligence of these sleeping ones. Are they not of the heedless?

When I am sad, I always pray.

(Abdu’l-Baha, Divine Philosophy, p. 73)
