how can we pray for something if we don’t ever really know whats good for us meaning why should someone pray for more money maybe its not good for him to have money now its possible g-d has other plans for him so why are we told to pray for something when we need it if its not necessary good for us to have that thing


Please permit me to add to your exellent question, we know that “kol ma d’avid rachnama l’tav”, whatever H-shem does is for the good, so how to have the nerve to ask that H-shem take the good away from us. He will answer us, I know this is the best thing for you, why do you want me yto change it?

Please see the following link where this question was discussed.

Best Wishes
