...and my mantra has been "God helps those who help themselves."
I agree with this thinking. My mantra is "Pray like it all depends on the Lord, then work like it all depends on you."

I've read something like You need to have faith in God and Jesus to have your prayers recieved. But I have little to none. It seems like a Catch 22. I need faith to pray, but I can't pray without faith.
It's a standard process. When you run a scientific experiment to know what is true, you first have to come up with hypotheses - a statement of what you believe - do research to make sure you understand what you're experimenting on, then run an experiment to see if what you believe stands up to testing.
This is the same thing with prayer. Your first step is to find out what prayer is, then put some faith on it, then test it.

Pray to God, but row away from the rocks.
That said, I have personally witnessed a miracle while giving a blessing to my wife.
And maybe have a seat by the Eastern wall.
And I'd discuss the holy books with the learned men, several hours every day.
That would be the sweetest thing of all.
