There's so much we don't know, maybe there was a creator God. Or the more likely scenario is that stuff is just there and we are looking at one of an infinite of existing possibilities. This is backed up by the recent theory proposed by Hawking that multiple (infinite?) universes may exist.
Imo, if there is an absolute God that made everything and controls everything, praying to him would hardly matter since the universe would be perfect in his eyes, so his effect in your life should be negligible. I never understood divine intervention, Gods need to intervene if their creation was imperfect, and thus those Gods are just imperfect beings like us.
