What we should pray for?
Perhaps, excluding 'personal' demands from one's own prayers could be the first step in conquering desire. When afflicted by poverty, ailments or uncertainties in life, one's prayers can become personal, seeking relief. But, if one accepted universal prayers like "
LokassamasthasSukhinoBhavantu" as a way of life, I think, occasional personal "demands" will get automatically granted as a "bonus"
