Religion is focused on works. It is focused on earning God’s favor by works and it is seeped in unbelief.
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Faith is required to please God. Our works cannot earn us His favor and they will not make Him move on our behalf.
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
God said He would never leave us or forsake us.
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever.
Jesus told His disciples that they Holy Spirit would be with them always.
Religious tradition causes people to pray for the presence of the Holy Spirit in their lives. Jesus said that He would be with us always so these prayers are offered in unbelief. We need to renew our minds to His indwelling presence that is always with us.
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Jesus said that He would be with us if two or more of us would gather together. We do not have to plead with Him to bless our services!
People beg and plead with God to fall one them because they do not believe the Holy Spirit has come. They are focused on outward manifestations like goose bumps or people falling. These things can happen but the Holy Spirit is present regardless of whether or not we feel anything!
