When we don’t pray or avoid praying, is it like we are betraying God? Can the evil forces have an upper hand on our lives leading us into problems and create troubles and bad things will start happening to us?

To feel badly about not talking to God is a very normal reaction, but the fear of reprisal is not. When we accept Christ as our savior we begin a new love relationship with him. Just as when you first fall in love with a girl, and call her three or four times a day, for no better reason than you just want to hear her voice, so is it with God. Just as you are joyous when she calls you, God is joyous when you call him.
God is a loving God and would not punish you for not praying any more than you would punish your girlfriend for not being home to answer your call.
God loves you so much that he sacrificed Jesus just so you could spend eternity with him in Heaven. God is LOVE and as a Christian we need to bask in that love and not question it.
