Worshipping ought to be a personal experience. At the philosophical level, the object of worship is worship itself. Nothing is sought as the end result. However, in order to reach that advanced level, we need to begin and practice praying systematically so that our faith in the Supreme Being is gradually strengthened. To start with, the object of our prayer may be that the Almighty grant us the wisdom to enhance our faith in Him so that we may make a deeper commitment as bhaktas (devotees).
Faith is the critical element without which any ritual or religious practice is meaningless. To those who engage in worship of an ishtadevata (Godhead of one’s choice), Krishna has an unambiguous warning that is essential for us to note.

The scriptures tell us that in this modern age, the easiest path to the Godhead is through Bhakti Yoga, the Yoga of devotion. I would say that the most valuable thing of all is to develop intense love for God. Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa called this "Raga Bhakti" or passionate attachment to God. With this kind of bhav you will be able to achieve every and any success in life.
Let us cultivate that raga bhakti through kirtan, japa, puja, and all our spiritual practices. Do whatever is necessary to gain that bhakti, and if you can irrigate the garden of your heart with the waters of bhakti, then there will be no real effort required to develop dispassion. You will be simply transformed by your sincere devotion and communion with God that all the worldly desires, attachments, vasanas, and samskaras will just fall right away.
