    It is an elliptical sentence. The full sentence would be something like:
    どうか幸せでいてください or
    どうか幸せでありますように祈ります.

    The meaning is "May you be happy".

     

    どうか Means "in what way", 幸せ means "happiness", and で can be translated as "by" pretty much the same as the Russian instrumental case. So the sentence means "what is the way to be happy" in case it is in a question, if it is in a positive sentence it will be "the way to be happy is..."
    I hope this helps.
