O merciful and bountiful

God is so merciful and bountiful that even without their asking He always gives much more than His lovers can receive. 

He knows their real needs more deeply than they do. Therefore  the element of asking something from God is superfluous. It often  mars the inner love and worship which a prayer tries to express.
