Travelling to acquire myrrh : OrthodoxChristianity



Hello my fellow brothers and sisters , if i knew some protestant friends who are ill and i travel far to acquire myrrh from an icon to help them , would God think that im not trusting him enough by prayer?

I know orthodoxy is not much of defining God in comparison to the west but why does God heal through physical objects such as myrrh and not just metaphysical prayer ? Would this analogy work ? That God wants us to participate in life , it would be useless to pray for a full belly without holding a spoon of rice to my mouth .
