How Important is it to Have Faith?

I look for God, I pray to God, but I donít feel like God exists.

You are not alone . Almost entire world is almost agnostic like you . Just remember to nurture the faith in God and NOT let atheistic beliefs overpower you and your mind and your actions .

Well your ques is how imp is it...it would be individual. My atheist ex would not think it was imp at all, see?
Me personally? Gotta say I'm not big on blind faith. I am more into a direct exp so you know something...whatever it is...
going to a new dentist, whatever, better to have gone
and now you know he's really bad, lol..or really good.

Why not ask God to reveal Himself to you...then sit in stillness and let Him; stillness and silence are like an invitation to Him.
Sure it could take a week, a year or a decade...but I can't think of anything else more worth waiting for!
Worked for ME!!

So taking baby-steps at first, blind faith gets the ball rolling, in my opinion.

That's what I would recommend too.

Just, when you do that, make sure you suspend all your beliefs and expectations, because those distort your link to God, higher-power, inner-guidance, or whatever you call it.
