What to ask for


"When one asks [Gd] for spiritual elevation, Gd certainly hears [and responds positively to] his prayer. But when one asks for material aid, it is unclear whether he is worthy of the aid, and whether it would be good for him.

"Therefore, one should ask Gd for spiritual elevation, and then it is possible that he will also be given material aid [as he will now be worthy]."

(R' Moshe Midner, Torat Avot pg. 167)

Have a great day,
