Prayer vs. action

I had a companion on my mission who loved to tell people to "pray like everything depends on God, but work like everything depends on you!" It's the whole "God helps those who help themselves" thing. I think it's supposed to be motivating, but every time I heard it it just got me thinking that maybe the first part about praying was a waste of time. Could it possibly be that we would get the same results if we just worked really hard without wearing out our knees and soaking our pillows in tears nightly?
