Is there a point to praying to god?
Prayer may work and as it does no harm it is better to pray just in case.
Prayer provides a focus for our desires. As a
it can help us reach our goals.
Prayers gives humans false hope, as there is no evidence for it working, and false hope is bad.
It is impossible to practice every religion on the planet just in case one of them is correct.
There may be unknown consequences to praying (absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence).
It's better to devote time to things we know are harmless and helpful than something that might not cause harm and may have benefit.
Practicing a religion just in case it is correct is unlikely to work unless you truly commit to the religion.
