From right to left: 言祥如意

The general meaning is "good luck" or maybe "may everything go your way." There are probably more nuances, but I'm not familiar with this version of "good luck."

On second thought, I totally doped on this one! This is the actual text: 吉祥如意

Meaning: "(wish you) good fortune and receive everything you desire"

It says (literally) Long Lasting Prosperity and Accomplish What you Seek. So if we were to make that nice, May you have everlasting prosperity and everything you set out to do go your way.
