Because you're moving your agency into something else rather than holding yourself accountable for what you do.
What do you pray for? Also which god? In the end regardless of what god you believe in you should treat yourself as said god. Hold yourself to a high standard. Regardless if it is kek, /k/ube or lain. No matter what we believe in you.
the G-d of the Talmud
praying to a false god could fuck you up.
You unconsciously think that having faith in a higher authority is a substitute for agency. A lot of people have this problem.
Forget God. He's too big and too far away to care at this point. Don't rely on him, rely on you.
Take it from a guy that used to want to be a priest. Praying is for suckers. So many damn pantheons let alone deities it is hard to keep track. Do your thing mate. You are certainly on my mind and I hope your problems find solutions.
you aren't praying to Gad by accident are you? That's an anxiety disorder.
Stop making 'yourself' the new god, you are not really in control of your life either. It's not even beneficial to say that to yourself while knowing it's not true because it just breeds dumb businessmen and self-help idiots. The idea that anyone or anything in control of your life is quite a problem by itself.
If you really want to believe in some god and get things rolling though, believe in the god that is 'everything'. You can pray for a car by stealing one, or earning money for one, or building one. You can pray for nice weather but quickly realize that it's kinda useless and stop. God made the sky thunder? More like the sky thundered! Oh wow god is everything and everything is god! You eat, breathe and piss god, and god is the internet and everybody in this thread too. What now.
I don't know which God you're praying to, but in Christianity we don't believe praying makes your life easier at all, really. God rewards us with wisdom, and that is all. God makes things right in the End, but here on this Earth? The wicked will prosper and and the righteous brought low.
If you buy into the popular "health and wealth" gospel that's so popular today you're going to be disappointed day after day after day. God may have a providential plan but he uses ordinary people to accomplish it. So pick yourself up and sort out your life. Wisdom to do that best is all you can expect in prayer
