What to ask for in Prayer

Jesus reportedly said, “Seek great things and the little things will be added for you; seek the heavenly things and the earthly things will be added for you.” 
(an extraconnical saying of Christ. See Jn 3:12, Mt 6:33, Lk 12:31)

What the saying means is  “you who wish to be spiritual, seek through your prayers heavenly and great things, so that in getting them as heavenly you may inherit the kingdom of heaven and in getting them as great you may enjoy great good things.  And as for the earthly and little things you need for your bodily necessities, the Father will supply you with them in proportion as you need them.”
