The only thing to ask for when you pray is wisdom, ask to be granted wisdom, then you won’t have to worry about the rest. Ask how to live and get by with what you have and to treat the other people like you want to be treated. If you treat other people like you want to be treated, you’ll forget about your pocketbook, you’ll forget about what you’re going to eat tomorrow, it won’t worry you. You’ll forget all your worries. That’s what life is all about.
