Asking For A Favor From God

Imam Baqir (A.S) said: “whenever you ask for a favor from God, then perform a nice ablution, then perform a two-prostration prayer and praise God for His greatness and bless the holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) and say:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِأَنَّكَ مَلِکٌ وَأَنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ مُقْتَدِرٌ وَبِأَنَّكَ مَا تَشَاءُ مِنْ أَمْرٍ يَكُونُ. اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَتَوَجَّهُ إِلَيْكَ بِنَبِيِّكَ مُحَمَّدٍ نَبِيِّ الرَّحْمَةِ صلي الله عليه و آله يَا مُحَمَّدُ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ إِنِّي أَتَوَجَّهُ بِكَ إِلَى اللهِ رَبِّكَ وَرَبِّي لِيُنْجِحَ لِي طَلِبَتِي. اللَّهُمَّ بِنَبِيِّكَ أَنْجِحْ لِي طَلِبَتِي بِمُحَمَّدٍ.

O’ Lord! For sure, I ask of You as You are the King and indeed you have power over all things, the Omnipotent, and verily, whatever from the acts You desire becomes existent. O’ Lord! For sure, I pay attention to You by Your Prophet Muhammad, the Prophet of mercy. O’ Muhmmad, O’ Allah’s Prophet! Indeed, I pay attention to Allah, my and your God through You to answer my requests. O’ Lord! Because of Your Prophet Muhammad, make me succeed in my request.
