Ask for a gift, not a salary


"When praying, one should not do so from the perspective of, 'Gd will do what I ask because I have prayed with proper concentration,' for this simply evokes his sins [in order to weigh whether one in fact deserves to have his request fulfilled].

"Rather, one should pray from the perspective that HaShem will fulfill his request out of generosity."

(Tur, Orach Chaim 98)

Have a great day,
