Authentic Supplication Number 23.

The Prophet ┬ádid not use to neglect saying these supplications as he would enter upon morning and evening: “‘Allahumma ‘innee ‘as’aluka ‘al-`afiyata fid-dunya wal ‘akhirati, ‘allahumma ‘as’aluka ‘al-`afwa wal `afiyata fee deenee wa dunyaya, wa ‘ahlee wa malee, ‘allahumma ‘ustur `awratee, wa ‘amin raw`atee, ‘allahumma ‘ihfathnee min bayni yadeyya wa min khalfee, wa `an yameenee, wa `an shimalee, wa min fawqee, wa ‘a`outhu bi `athamatica ‘an ‘ughtala min tahtee (42).

(42) O’ my ‘ilah I ask You wellness in this world and the hereafter, O’ my ‘ilah I ask You pardon and wellness in my faith, my world, my family, and my property. O’ my ‘ilah cover my shames, and make my frights peaceful. O’ my ‘ilah guard me from between my hands, from behind me, to my right, to my left, from above me, and I seek refuge in your Magnificence that I be swallowed from beneath me.[27]

Reported by Abu Dawood, An-Nisa’ee, Ibn Majah, and Al-Hakim who said it was sound. Al-Albani said that At-Thahabi agreed with with Al-Hakim, and he does as well, and he included it in The Authentic of Good Sayings as #23.
