Forget about praying if you are evil

The wicked shouldn't bother to pray since God will not listen to them, read this: 

Proverbs 15:29 The Lord does not listen to the wicked, but he hears the prayers of those who do right. 

Wicked ways irritate God. 

The Bible says He hates what evil people do, read this:

Proverbs 15:9 The Lord hates what evil people do, but He loves those who do what is right. 

These Scriptures reveal several key things:

God listens to those in relationship with Him (John 1:12-13) who do the right thing.

The wicked who fall on hard or sad times will be on their own. God's not listening to their prayers. 

The wicked who are apart from God will be wiped out of history:

Psalm 9:5 You condemned nations.You destroyed wicked people.You wiped out their names forever and ever.
