Perhaps you have some form of trouble, ailment....reading the Sri Rudram and Chamakam will give you peace of mind as you are asking...rather boldly I must say...for Lord Shiva to grant your wishes. The reason you have thought of the Sri Rudram is directly attritbuted to your bhakti for Shiva since very many births...continue the bhakti with the Sri Rudram.

You repose your trust on Lord Shiva...why carry the luggage on your head when you can just lay it on the floor, and let the train carry it for you. You are virtually guaranteed protection by just putting forth the trust. The surrender ...Saranagati...is essentially taking refuge in Shiva in mind, body and soul. You acknowledge Shiva's powerful nature and his utter ferocity and you seek to appease him with beautiful words. Lord Shiva is easily pleased...it will work wonders.

Namakam is all praise for him, and then Chamakam is asking for what rightfully belongs to us.
