In short, no, praying mantids are not poisonous. They do have sharp spikes on their forelegs which they can use to strike with if harassed.

For the most part, they are pretty safe to handle. If you notice them standing on their back legs and getting into a defensive position, then you know are they getting ready to strike.

No, they are not dangerous to humans, but they can give you a nasty bite if you bother them.

They can bite but they don't have any venom. So pretty harmless to larger animals, ie. Humans.
