[tlhIngan Hol] does -jaj have the "may your request be granted" meaning ?

Before SuStel explained what your sentence really means, I only saw it
as a wish, because that's what {-jaj} implies.

So if it it just means that, you may use it:

Kid: "I'm going to ask mom for a cookie."
{jIHvaD chab nob SoS 'e' vItlhobrup}

Sister: "May your wish be granted".
{chab DaneHbogh Dunobjaj.}
= "Good luck! I hope it works."

Any other usage than a wish is not suited for {-jaj}.
