Jayapatākā Swami: Best thing to pray is that we can serve Kṛṣṇa. We can awaken our dormant love for Kṛṣṇa. That we can help many people become fixed in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Some people pray that they can distribute a lot of books. Some pray that they can help the temple to expand. Some pray that husband and wife, they could work together to serve guru and Gaurāṅga. Some pray that they would like their Nāmahaṭṭa or Bhakti-vṛkṣa to expand. Pūjārīs, they may ask that their Deity worship may become better. Cooks, they pray that they can make nice bhoga for Kṛṣṇa. Like this, there are so many things you can pray for. You see, devotees have desires, but their desires are Kṛṣṇa conscious. Someone may like to see the TOVP come up! They think how can I give more donation this year? How can I make more devotees during the year? So, there are so many things we can pray to Kṛṣṇa that we don’t fall down, we should satisfy guru and Kṛṣṇa.
