I do daily path of Anand Sahib "10 pauris", Japji Sahib, Tav Prasad Saviye,Chaupai Sahib, and the saloks of Sukhmani Sahib. I also do ardaas to God to give me something that I really want. Will Guru Ji give it to me?

It is really great that you are doing all those prayers. Keep it up!

If you can do something about what you are praying for, then take that step. For example if you are praying about a job position, apply for the job. If you are praying that you want a relationship with so-and-so then go and introduce yourself (or through your parents or whatever). If you are praying to solve a conflict with someone, take the steps you can. The way I see it, God gave us the ability to take actions and do stuff in this life and we need to use them. I remember someone using an example once that if my computer got smashed, I can’t simply sit in front of the computer and pray that it will fix itself. I have to take it to get repaired or whatever. Now when you are done everything possible to make steps towards what you want, then you leave it in the hands of God and you trust with faith, that whatever happens now is going to happen for the best. What we receive in this life is from our past karmas.

The key thing here is that God gifts us so many gifts everyday. Things that you might not even pray for. God knows what you need. You are getting breath to be alive right now. We might not always get what we want. Sometimes it’s devastating. I have been devastated sometimes from not having my dreams come true. Its sad, but it helps to remember that God has a path for you and that wasn’t it. Don’t put the condition on doing your prayers that you must get what you want. What I mean is, if you don’t get what you want, will you stop praying? You shouldn’t. You should continue to pray out of love for God, out of the fact that our prayers remind us the rules of the game of life and how to function in this world. Don’t make the prayers themselves a bargain. When we let go and accept whatever outcome will be, we let go of our ego that we know better than God what is good for our life.

I can't predict if God will give it to you or not, no one can. Just ask yourself- is there something I can do to make my wish come true? If you can, take those steps. If not, leave it to God and have faith that whatever happens will be ok. Keep doing your prayers with the purpose of understanding what you are reading and incorporating it into your life so that you can reach God in this life.

I am impressed by your dedication. Keep it up!
