ANSWER:

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب

One is to fast for three days consecutively from Wednesday to Friday, then having done Ghusl [bathed] for Friday, one should go to the Jum’ah salāh and also donate some money, then after Jum’ah salāh, pray the following supplication:

  اَللّٰھُمَّ اِنِیْ اَسْئَلُکَ بِاسْمِکَ بِسْمِ اللہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ    ؕ  اَلَّذِیْ لَآ اِلٰہَ اِلَّا ھُوَ ؕ عَالِمُ الْغَیْبِ وَالشَّھَادَۃِ ھُوَ الرَّحْمٰنُ الرَّحِیْمُ  وَاَسْئَلُکَ بِاِسْمِکَ بِسْمِ اللہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ ؕ اَلَّذِیْ لَآ اِلٰہَ اِلَّا ھُوَ ؕ اَلْحَیُّ الْقَیُّومُ ؕ لَا تَاْخُذُہٗ سِنَۃٌ وَّلَا نَوْمٌ ؕ اَلَّذِیْ مَلَئَتْ عَظْمَتُہٗ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالْاَرْضِ ؕ وَاَسْئَلُکَ بِاِسْمِکَ بِسْمِ اللہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ ؕ اَلَّذِیْ لَآ اِلٰہَ اِلَّا ھُوَ وَعَنَتْ لَہُ الْوُجُوْہُ وَخَشَعَتْ لَہُ الْاَصْوَاتُ وَ وَجِلَتِ الْقُلُوْبِ مِنْ خَشْیَتِہٖ اَنْ تُصَلِّیَ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ عَلٰی اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّی اللہُ عَلَیْہِ وَسَلَّمَ وَاَنْ تُعْطِیَنِیْ مَسْئَلَتِیْ وَتَفْضِیَ حَاجَتِیْ بِرَحْمَتِکَ یَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِیْنَ

One should mention their need after the word حَاجَتِیْ, and then one should wholeheartedly & fully submit and supplicate to Allāh. Allāh willing, the supplication of such person will definitely be accepted. One should bear in mind that this supplication should not be made for any impermissible act, because the blessed companion from whom this supplication is narrated states that this supplication should never be taught to the foolish because they will pray for some impermissible act via it and will become entangled in sin.
