Guru Maharaj: We don’t want to ask the Lord for something material. We don’t want to reduce our devotional service to some kind of business deal. “I served You, You give me what I want!” If there is something that we think is useful for our devotional service, we can pray that to the Lord, if He desires, please give us this thing. We put a condition, that if You desire. And in this way, we can depend on the Lord, and at the same time express our desire. But in some material things, as He is the Supersoul, He knows what we want and what we need. So for material things, we shouldn’t bother the Lord. But for spiritual thing, we can pray to the Lord. If it is something material, but may affect our devotional service, then we offer with a condition, that if you so please. Like when Śrīla Prabhupāda was sick, we used to pray to Narasiṁhadeva, to help him recover, if He so desires.
