If you want for instance to have a higher income than you have now, think about why. What is the meaningful end you are trying to reach?
The money is not meaningful, the things that you could do are.
The reason that this is important is because you may miss the opportunity of attaining that meaningful goal if you are fixed on getting to it through your determined means.
If you really want a safe and reliable means to get to work and therefore you want money to buy a car do not pray only for the money, but also for the car.
This is obvious in a situation such as the car. It is less obvious when it is mixed with other needs which money would would all seem to be cured with a steady influx of cash.
Be open to salvation coming in ways unexpected. Unlock your heart and connect to the deepest desires you have around this need.
My friend shared a beautiful experience with me. He loves crafting unforgettably special Shabbat meals with many guests at his home, but felt he needed greater income to support his passion. He wanted a better job, but worried that a new job would jeapordize his other priorities such as community, family etc. In the end the community head approached him with a proposal that the community would pay him to host guests which others could not accommodate! Wham! The meaningful ends he so much wanted without the compromise he thought he would need to make.
Pray from the meaningful desire and you will be focused on that and radiating that. This is positive. Praying for different circumstances is not positive, it is a dead energy.
You will attract and network and find what you want when that is your focus. When you focus on the money you are instead creating an energy of lack and resentment.
So what is truly meaningful to you? What is dynamic and exciting for you? What is your reason for life?
Be filled with this and talk about it. Pray about it and be open to salvation coming in ways unexpected.
