    "Богу" is Dative case of "Бог" - "God".
    Examples - Благодаря Богу (кому?) мы встретились. - Thanks to God we have met.
    Молиться Богу - to pray to God.

    The word is masculine and is declined so:
    Nominative - Бог
    Genitive - Бога
    Dative - Богу
    Accusative - Бога
    Instrumental - Богом
    Prepositional - Боге
