Dear Brother,

The procedure of performing salatul hajah is mentioned in the following hadith:  

عن عبد الله بن أبي أوفى، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: من كانت له إلى الله حاجة، أو إلى أحد من بني آدم فليتوضأ وليحسن الوضوء، ثم ليصل ركعتين، ثم ليثن على الله، وليصل على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم، ثم ليقل: لا إله إلا الله الحليم الكريم، سبحان الله رب العرش العظيم، الحمد لله رب العالمين، أسألك موجبات رحمتك، وعزائم مغفرتك، والغنيمة من كل بر، والسلامة من كل إثم، لا تدع لي ذنبا إلا غفرته، ولا هما إلا فرجته، ولا حاجة هي لك رضا إلا قضيتها يا أرحم الراحمين

Translation: Abdullah bin Abi Awfa Radhyallahu Anhu narrated that Rasulullah () said: “Whoever has a need from Allah, or from one of the sons of Adam, then let him perform Wudu, performing it well, then pray two Rak`ah, then praise Allah and say Salat upon the Prophet (). Then let him say: (La ilaha illallah Al-Halimul-Karim. Subhan Allah Rabbil-`Arshil-`Azim. Al-Hamdulillahi Rabbil-`Alamin. As'aluka mujibati rahmatika wa `azaim maghfiratika, wal-ghanimata min kulli birrin, was-salamata min kulli ithmin, la tada` li dhanban illa ghafartahu, wa la hamman illa farrajtahu, wa la Hajatan hiya laka ridan Illa Qadaitaha, ya arham ar-rahimin) “None has the right to be worshiped but Allah. Al-Halim (the Forbearing) Al-Karim (the Generous). Glorious is Allah, Lord of the Magnificent Throne. All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds. I ask You for that which warrants Your mercy, and that which will determine Your forgiveness, and the spoils (fruits) of every righteous deed, and safety from every sin; do not leave a sin for me without forgiving it, nor a worry without relieving it. Or a need that pleases you without granting it. O Most-Merciful of those who have mercy”. Sunan At-Tirmizi [479]
