Iyanla Vanzant Shares Her 3 Personal Prayers With Oprah (VIDEO)

The death of a daughter, a son's imprisonment, domestic abuse -- these are just a few of the challenges single mother Iyanla Vanzant has faced in her life. As a deeply spiritual person, Iyanla prays quite often, which she discusses on an episode of Oprah's "Super Soul Sunday."

"What is your personal prayer?" Oprah asks Iyanla in the video above.

"I have three," she responds.

The first prayer is just one word. "'Help!'" Iyanla says, laughing.

Iyanla's second prayer is a modified version of the first. "'Help me now.' That's the second one," she says.

Iyanla's third prayer, she says, is "thank you."

"Those three will cover anything," she tells Oprah. "Anything... I don't need anything else."

"Wow," Oprah says. "That's really great. 'Help,' 'help me now' and 'thank you.'"

"Super Soul Sunday" airs Sundays at 11 a.m. ET on OWN.
