If God doesn't exist, then clearly it is a waste of time.
Even if you believe that he does exist, then realise that it is still a waste of time:
1. God is supposed to be omniscient, so he knows if you love him or not and he knows your problems without you having to pray ...[text shortened]... ny more of your precious time in prayer or worship.
DO SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE WITH YOUR LIFE!
Howardgee, by the way you wrote this it sounds like you do believe that God exists, and that is very good.

Think about it, the more you pray and praise God, the more constructive God will be with the things in your life. Everything in life is a give and take, a wash my back and I'll wash yours situation.
You cant expect for God to show, give or make stuff, if you dont do the same. Isnt it always, in most cases, that you have to be the one that has to be lesser person? Think about it...you are just cross with God and He will forgive you for that.
