Jayapataka Swami: We should offer offerings to Lord Jagannath, He is used to getting many offerings per day. He is known to have Chappan Bhoga or 56 offerings a day. I don’t know what you mean to ask Him to do the needful, that He is doing anyway! But if you have some specific request, if it so pleases the Lord, then you can ask Him. If you ask for something tamasic then He many not listen to your prayer.
