As-salāmu ʿalaykum wa-raḥmatullāhi wa-barakātuh. Imām Bukhārī (#6369), Imām Abū Dawūd (#1541), Imām Nasaʾī (#5450) رحمهم الله have all narrated this comprehensive duʿāʾ:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْهَمِّ وَالْحَزَنِ، وَالْعَجْزِ وَالْكَسَلِ، وَالْجُبْنِ وَالْبُخْلِ، وَضَلَعِ الدَّيْنِ، وَغَلَبَةِ الرِّجَالِ

“Oh Allāh! I seek your protection from worry, grief, weakness, laziness, cowardice, stinginess, the pain of debt, and being overpowered by men.”
