When I ask a theist to prove what their claiming, I rarely get an answer, if at all?
Neither side can prove their beliefs. Let it go...
It might be because they are not things that can be proven. It's not science it's beliefs that some want to believe so bad that they turn it into something they claim to know.
Theism is belief in God and there are many faiths that adhere to theism with variations here and there. To prove theism is something that only God can do. In my personal experience, I had an "epiphany" of sorts 30 years ago that changed my life. You can't prove God like you would prove something in a debate. But as the Bible says, "Seek and you will find." So if you keep searching, it will come your way.
For 21 years, I had a belief and it was unshakeable. It was when I met with teachers outside of the faith, that I truly considered the reality of it. All I have is my experience and my perception, anything beyond that is a day dream.
That happens too, and your journey is far from over. Thing is, if you just grow up with a faith, it is different from midway finding faith or finding a new faith. In such case, it is an act of conviction because you experienced it. If I were you, continue on your journey and keep praying.
What has prayer accomplished? Other than what is provided by theist sources? I couldn't pray a person to life nor could I repare a broken leg. My prayers won't stop a war and they won't change what is. If there is any proof of prayer working, then it is purely a delusion of the theist.
