    Hare Krishna dear Devotees, please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

    It depends on Your mood Nishchalinn Prabhuji.

    What we want from Lord for that we have to pray. 

    Each person has his own personal relationship with Krishna. Each person prays in different way. And each of them unique and pleasing to Krishna if the prayer comes out from heart with tears in eyes.

    You can read all the prayers of ahcharyas like Narottam das Thakur, Bhaktivinod Thakur, Rupa Goswami...and select that one which is suitable to Your present mood.

    Or You can take prayers from Srimad Bhagavatam where Gajendra offers wonderful payers, where Kunti Devi offers wonderful payers, where wives of snake kaliya, Kumaras, Demigods, Lord Shiva, Brahma, Dhruva Maharaja, Prabhlad Maharaj offer their prayers.

    For example, i like to offer pranams to my Gurudev, Srila Prabhupada, then Pancha Tattva Mantra, then prayer to the Holy Names, then prayer to the Lord then start to chant.

    Your servant,
