Your receive what you want when you aren’t thinking about it anymore.
You receive your prayer when you surrender utterly to the Absolute, accepting whatever comes.
Your receive your prayer if it is unselfish, for the highest good of everyone conderned( fear not: that includes yourself)
you receive your disire if the prayer encourages harmony,love,joy, laughter, and well-being.
