Abu Umamah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) made many supplications which we did not memorize. We said to him: "O Messenger of Allah! You have made many supplications of which we do not remember anything." He said, "Shall I tell you a comprehensive prayer? Say: 'Allahumma inni as'aluka min khairi ma sa'alaka minhu nabiyyuka Muhammad sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Wa 'a'udhu bika min sharri mas-ta'adha minhu nabiyyuka Muhammad sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Wa Antal-Musta'anu, wa 'alaikal-balaghu, wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah (O Allah, I ask You the good which Your Prophet Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) begged You; and I seek refuge in You from the evil where from Your Prophet Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) sought refuge. You are the One from Whom help is sought and Your is the responsibility to communicate (the truth). There is no power or strength except with Allah the Exalted, the Great."' [At- Tirmidhi]
