Ask for Ultimate Goal

During personal prayers, ask for the ultimate goal of what you seek, not for the means of getting there.
Examples
  • Ask to find an appropriate spouse very soon (rather than praying to marry a specific person).
  • Ask to get a good job (rather than praying to get a specific job for which you will interview).
