In Hebrew, Ab, Ba, and Abba all mean "Father"
Also, El means "God"
Charismatics call on the name of "Father God" that they equate with both Jehovah and Jesus (or Yahweh and Yeshua to be precise).
So, Bael could mean "Father God".

Who is praying to whom?

Several people in the Bible are named or have their names derived back to Baal or Bael. Some "righteous", at least 11 not so much (Edom).

"In the Northwest Semitic languages—Ugaritic, Phoenician, Hebrew, Amorite, and Aramaic—the word baʿal signified "owner" and, by extension, "lord", a "master", or "husband"."

but ADONAI's share was his own people, Ya'akov his allotted heritage


So we can see that The Most High only gave ADONAI a small share (people of Jacob) - as his inheritance. The rest of the humans were inherited by other gods.

Since humans gained nuclear and yet more advanced weapons the gods have been keeping their heads down.
