We pray to God for His Victory36

“My Supreme, my Supreme, my Supreme!

When I pray to You,
You give me a beautiful Smile.
When I pray for You,
You give me one hundred
Most powerful Smiles
In a row.

“My Supreme, my Supreme, my Supreme!”37

Why do we have to pray for God? God is Omniscient, Omnipotent; He is everything. But when we say we pray for the Supreme, it means we are praying for His Victory.

If we pray to God, then we always say, “Give me this, give me that.” But if we pray for His Victory, then He becomes infinitely more pleased with us.

We shall pray to God to give us what we need. But we shall pray for Him also — that is, for His Victory, His divine Victory.
