What does the Bible say about praying for what you want?
If you have never really prayed, I urge you to give it a try. After all, the Bible tells us that your prayers will be met with God’s delight (Proverbs 15:8, Psalm 149:4). The act of prayer leads to the peace, patience and perseverance we all so desperately need.

No. God gives us what *he* wants us to have, but only when we are willing to accept it (that pesky free will thing again: God cannot give what we refuse to accept). Now, if our “want” corresponds with God’s design and will, then sure, we’ll get it.
