In other religion it’s seen to be normal to include your wish in the prayer. There are also many Buddhists include their wish when they’re performing wholesome deeds, for example, you wish to be reborn in happy states, etc. In numerous occasions, Buddha said in the Sutta, you reap what you sow.
Therefore my understanding is making wish is unnecessary. But I think it’s quite humane to make a wish, there are teachers say you need to make a kind of wish or aspiration on what you do, you need a goal, basically.
Since there is contradiction, do you think making wish is necessary? Thanks.
