Jayapatākā Swami: We need to worship the Deities with devotion. We don’t want to make the Lord remove all our material problems. We have to pray to the Lord for devotion to Kṛṣṇa and advance in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. This way if we tell the Lord, we wish that we are able to serve you in complete devotion or surrender but sometimes my mind becomes disturbed or goes elsewhere. Please forgive me for this. This way, we should always keep our focus on devotion to Lord Kṛṣṇa. This way, we don’t desire that the Lord will serve us. So we should serve the Lord this way, that if we have some weakness, we can beg for forgiveness from the Lord and ask for His special mercy.
