Prying: literal action? Looking into other people's business? Investigating something?

Praying: In the religious sense? or simply wishing strongly that something will happen? or not happen?

a little blooper - perhaps it was a bit misleading to say yes to the "literal action" - I did not mean it in the physical sense, just the investigation. Sorry if I caused any confusion.

OK.
Did a person try both prying and praying, and found prying worked better? Did they pray asking to gain information? Is the specific religion relevant?
How many people involved [insert lateral list 1-6.5 billion]?

Was the individual a Crime Detective?
I can imagine that he'd be better off prying rather than praying.
