Question: What should one ask for when one experiences strong physical suffering and pain?
Answer: When you experience strong suffering and pain turn to the Creator with the question: “What is the reason for this suffering?”
The reason is egoism, the oppositeness to the Light. There is nothing else.
You can ask for your own correction in order to change pain to joy, health, and so on because the states of suffering push us away and distance us from the Creator.
