I don't see how asking a non-existent being to help you is at all moral. If anything, it is the exact opposite because instead of achieving your goal, which your morals are based on, you are trying to get divine help.

Even thanking a god is pretty immoral. Giving up pride that you deserve doesn't make much sense when it comes to being the "best" human you can be.
