Is it ok to pray to win an online contest?

Im Catholic and its not for money its to win a free full year subscription for a hockey training website. Would this be wrong to pray for. I want to make it big in hockey and I always pray to God about it and I know God feels what I feel and knows my intentions and struggles and he knows i need this so could i pray to him for it and about it and stuff.

In anything we pray for : we say :
Lord... If it be your will ... I ask this.
But remember : about another 1000
are probably praying the same thing.
Good luck to you!

You should always pray God's Will in your life.

Its not wrong to pray for 'things'. Just don't let all your prayers be: i want, i want, i want. God is Good and Just and wants us to be happy. There is a good rule to live by: do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If God sees you being generous, He will be generous with you

You are to pray about all things. The only catch is that if what you are praying for isn't Gods best for you then you won't get that. Pray for Gods will in your life He has greater things for you than you could ever imagine.

Prayer is a conversation with God asking, thanking and taking to him so praying for ANYTHING is okay, as long as you pray right and not only pray for that lol
