What to say in a prayer ?

I have a very important Question. Its been occupying my mind for a few months and I cant find the answer.
Im studying for a very important exam that is in May. This exam will lead me to my future career and therefore shape a great portion of my future life.
I know this prayer that everytime I wanted something and I read it , that will happen. Its a very strong prayer. But Since we dont know what is best for us to happen Im not sure how to use it. Maybe the thing that I want to happen and I insist on it , Isnt what I think it would be and does nit bring happiness to me. On the other hand I think if these kind of prayers exist that means we can choose whatever outcome we desire.

Sorry my English is not very good. But coald anyone tell me how should I pray for what I really want without forcing universe to manifest something that might be wrong?

why not just pray for happiness then you will hopefully receive what u need in life to be happy ...instead of attracting what we think will make us happy?

It means to know what it is you want, give thanks to whatever you believe in, and know that it will come to pass, when the time is right for you Don't have any doubts about it..

How about this one?

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference."

This prayer is one I live by on a regular basis :)

Do not think too much and push yourself to it. Prayers should come from the heart. Just say what you want and what you feel then yes, let it go :)

kamadinam kati na katidha palita durnidesas
tesham jata mayi na karuna na trapa nopasantih
utsrijyaitan atha yadu-pate sampratam labdha-buddhis
tvam ayatah saranam abhayam mam niyunkshvatma-dasye


O my Lord, there is no limit to the unwanted desires. Although I have rendered these desires so much service, they have not shown any mercy to me. I have not been ashamed to serve them, nor have I even desired to give them up. O my Lord, O head of the Yadu dynasty, recently, however, my intelligence has been awakened, and now I am giving them up. Due to transcendental intelligence, I now refuse to obey the unwanted orders of these desires, and I now come to You to surrender myself at Your fearless lotus feet. Kindly engage me in Your personal service and save me. (Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita Madhya 22.16)

Moonlight1216,

Always pray to succeed.

If you've ever had the experience of wanting to buy a new car or had a desire to remember something you forgot, then you know what the law of attraction is.

How ?

Have you noticed that as soon as you've told yourself that you like a certain car and wonder what it would be like to have one, that EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK from then on, you keep seeing that type of car ?

Have you ever noticed that when trying to remember something you forgot, that it is more effective to tell yourself to "Relax, it will come back to you" than trying to FORCE yourself to remember?

The mechanism of "attraction" at work in both cases, but most especially in the answer to your question, is simply this: ACCEPTING, not wishing for, WHAT YOU WANT….NOW.

If you really want to pass your exam, confidently accept, not wish for, what you want (i.e. to pass the exam).

In turn, the Universe, in response to "what you accept" will reflect THAT as your experience.

How ?

As indicated in the reference, "In the last analysis there is but one treatment given for anything that is desired. That treatment consists in convincing the mind that the thing desired is already accomplished....Treatment is not for the purpose of making things happen; it is to provide, within ourselves, an avenue through which they may happen. Treatment opens up the avenues of thought, expands the consciousness, and lets Reality through; it clarifies the mentality, removes the obstructions of thought and lets in the Light. We already live in a Perfect Universe, but It needs to be mentally seen before It can become a part of our experience."

Pray in the same manner, and for the same reason...that you will take the exam:

To succeed !

The Universe will ALWAYS reflect your prayer AS your successful experience in terms of what you FOCUS on.

If you doubt your capability to succeed...the Universe will reflect THAT as your experience, perfectly. Why ?

The Universe ALWAYS gives you what you FOCUS on, not what you want.

That's why you must FOCUS ON SUCCESS, not on failure !

Hope this, and an expanded explanation in the reference, helps....
