“Supplication is one of the causes that is effective in man’s affair; that is, to focus attention on God with the totality of one’s existence in seeking His assistance. There is no doubt that God is well aware of man’s needs and his secret desires, but He has formed a law that govern man’s relation with nature in his life this is, nothing can be attained without struggle and action and that every action bears its fruits. He has laid down the principle that no treasure is uncovered without toil and no reward is conferred without one’s being deserving of it; similarly, with regard to man’s direct relation with God, a system of supplication and its acceptance by God has been determined.” — Shaheed Seyyed Mohammad Hosseini Beheshti (r)

Perhaps have a sheikh or another uncle figure in the community speak to him. I’m the wrong person to ask about this. Ask a sheikh directly about what approaches to take since I’m sure they’ve had more encounters like this

“Every night in the month of Ramadan, Allah, the Blessed and the Exalted, calls out three times: “Is there anyone who seeks from Me so that I grant him his wish? Is there anyone who turns to Me in repentance so that I may turn to him (in Mercy)? Is there anyone who seeks forgiveness from Me so that I may forgive him?”” — Prophet Muhammad (S), Mustadrak al-Wasaail, vol. 7, pg. 429  (via thelittlephilosopher)
