The real prayer

One day, when Baba asked someone to pray, the devotee began: “O God, grant me health, give me long life so that I may serve Thee …”

Baba interrupted, correcting him, “This is not a prayer, but a list of your wishes! The real prayer to God is praise for Him through love and nothing else! When you know you are in illusion, why keep asking for more of it?”
