An abundance is a very large quantity of something. You can have an abundance of things like money, clothing, or jewelry. Those things exist on a physical level and although not wrong to pray for, there are other areas of importance in which we should focus on being abundant. You should absolutely pray for abundance in the form of- love, happiness, and gratitude. These things are intangible and you can never have enough. I personally pray for love, happiness and gratitude daily although I am blessed with an abundance of all three. When praying for abundance, try to steer clear of tangible things (things money can buy.) These tangible things should be positioned differently. Instead of praying for money, pray for prosperity. Instead of praying for a partner, pray for happiness. You can have an abundance of patience, knowledge, and strength. With these abundant qualities, comes everything we have ever needed. Focus on your needs, not your wants.
