Christians still believe that if they pray, it equals obedience.

With every breath be aware of God’s presence – communion with the Lord. Prayer is simply the relationship. The result of communion and conversation with God is that He is going to show you something that He needs to see us do, or change, or be a part of, or not be a part of. Those are the things that open the door for a choice to obey or disobey.

Praying brings God’s presence, but does not designate that you’re being obedient. It only means you’re “being”. In a family just being in conversation with family members doesn’t mean you are being obedient to the needs of the relationship and family.
