Try to put this in yor interface file instead:
iface ra0 inet dhcp
      wireless-essid Ayato
      wireless-mode managed
      wireless-key <your key>

basically, the form is wireless-<function> <value>
the function name for WPAPSK should be just key, though
Do a iwconfig ra0, to get an idea of what the different function names
