    Jeremiah 45:5 "Do you seek great things for yourself?"

    It seems from Jeremiah 45:5 that we are not to ask for grandiose,
    superfluous things to our Father in heaven. However...

    Matthew 6:8 "Your Father knows the things you have need
    of before you ask Him"


    ... henceforth, it appears to me that there is no danger in asking at
    all, for He will provide us with all what we need spiritually and we
    will slowly be drawn ever closer to Him, ceasing at some point to
    ask things altogether and switching into praise mode.

    Can I have a Hallelujah?

    Perhaps you meant a good guide on how to "play...", and of course the trailing ellipses suggest that you were interrupted on this chain of thought and randomly posted some scripture instead.
    Perhaps the follwing link will be useful:

    Hope this helps 🙂

    He does indeed know what is best for you.

    As with parents, you can ask for anything, but the answer is often "no".

    Praying with and over the word of God itself is very beneficial.

    True.

    Really though, without the Word of God we wouldn't know how to pray. 🙂
