Back when I was a kid, I would cross my fingers a lot when I wanted something to go my way, and it did, therefore crossing one's fingers gives one the magical ability to grant their own wishes.
If you kept up with the weather channel all week that dry, hot summer, you'd have seen the rain front coming well ahead of time. Prayer isn't proof of one's side because people of most (all?) beliefs have some form of prayer they do and they'll all tell you it works sometimes.
