My Prayer Flower

A friend of mine gave this flower to me last summer. She said the name of this flower is Prayer Flower. But searching on the internet the prayer flower looks different from this one. Anybody, know the real name of this dainty flower?

Lovely little flowers and great photos.
They look like (Purple) Shamrock-Oxalis triangularis flowers but it's hard to tell without seeing the leaves.

Have a great weekend!

I also think it's probably purple oxalis, but when you want a flower identified, the leaves are pretty important. Lovely photos!

What a beautiful flower. What is the meaning of the prayer flower? It is lovely. I would take it to a nursery and ask them. Thank you so much for stopping by my place.
blessings!
