How can Jesus be God when he prayed to God and the scriptures say Jesus has a God?

(Matthew 26:36) Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto his disciples, Sit ye here, while I go yonder and pray

(Mark6:46; 14:32) And after he had taken leave of them, he departed into the mountain to pray. (32) And they come unto a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith unto his disciples, Sit ye here, while I pray.

(Luke 6:12) And it came to pass in these days, that he went out into the mountain to pray; and he continued all night in prayer to God.

(Hebrews 1:9) Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; Therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee With the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

    If Jesus is God he would be praying to himself. Jesus did not teach us to pray to him, but he said at Matthew 6:9 to pray to our father in heaven.
