Hadith on Dua: Teach me words to say for my Lord

Sa’d reported: A bedouin came to the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, and he said, “Teach me some words to say.” The Prophet said, “Say: There is no god but Allah without any partner, Allah is the greatest of the great, all praise is due to Allah in abundance, glory be to Allah the Lord of the worlds, there is no movement or might but in Allah, the Almighty, the Wise.” The man said, “These words are for my Lord, but what is for me?” The Prophet said, “Say: O Allah, forgive me, have mercy upon me, guide me, and provide for me.
