What happens if I don't pray?
Here's the answer:
If you disobey God's command to pray, God will still do His perfect plan. But you'll likely miss out on seeing Him work.
God commands Christians to pray (Luke 18:1). We pray to praise God, confess our sin, and ask for His help. God uses prayer to work His perfect plan. He doesn't have to use prayer, but He chooses to use prayer.
God uses prayer to bring His plan to pass. God's plan always happens because He is all-powerful.
If God's plan always happens, why should we pray and ask God for things? Won't He do His own plan, even if we don't pray? If we disobey God's command to pray, God will still do His plan. But then we may not know He worked, so we won't be able to thank Him and trust Him more.
"You don't have what you want, because you don't ask God. When you do ask for something, you don't receive it. Why? Because you ask for the wrong reason. You want to spend your money on your sinful pleasures" (James 4:2b-3).
"The Lord who rules over all has taken an oath. He has said, 'You can be sure that what I have planned will happen. What I have decided will take place'" (Isaiah 14:24).
