God And The Psychic Friends Network

Back in the day, there was a joke that floated around about the Psychic Friends Network. It went something along the lines of

"If the people in the Psychic Friends Network are really psychic and really your friends, then wouldn't they know when you needed to talk and call you?"

Well, I was talking to my work partner the other day, and a similar question occured to me. If the Christian God is an omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, omnibenevolent God, then shouldn't he know what you need before you need it and arrange for you to have it when the time comes? Seems to me that that's the case, and if it is, then prayer to said omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, omnibenevolent God is sorta like calling the Psychic Friends Network, isn't it? Pointless.
