Ask and ye shall recieve

Standing in queue for the Saturday prayer at the Shani Mandir (a section devoted to the planets, majorly Saturn, at the temple) I realised how prayer is so different for various people. Some simply pray (like me), some have a set of protocol they follow whilst performing the prayer, some bow and move on whilst others push and shove, thinking that being closer to the deity will make their wishes heard better. The bottom line is, people either come to express gratitude, share their worries or ask for something. The question I always ask is; Will I get if I ask, even if I don’t deserve it? Or will I get what I deserve, even if I don’t ask for it?
