pasting is bound to Ctrl+y by default:

You change that by passing a custom XPConfig to the XMonad.Prompt
functions, where the promptKeymap field is modified accordingly.
For example:

import qualified Data.Map as M
myXPConfig = defaultXPConfig { promptKeymap = M.insert (controlMask, xK_v) pasteString defaultXPKeymap }
.. somePromptFunction myXPConfig
