I plan on using this regularly for morning and evening adhkaar and general duas.

Dua for Waking up

Start your day the right way with this blessed dua. It really sets the tone (and your mindset) for the day ahead.

الحَمْدُ لِلهِ الَّذِي أَحْيَانَا بَعْدَ مَا أَمَاتَنَا وَإِلَيْهِ النُّشُورُ

Translation: Praise is for Allah Who gave us life after causing us to die and to Him we shall return. (Bukhari and Muslim)

اللَّهُـمَّ إِنِّي أَعُـوذُ بِـكَ مِـنَ الْخُـبُثِ وَالْخَبَائِثِ

الْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ الَّذِي كَسَانِي هَذَا الثَّوبَ وَرَزَقَنِيهِ مِنْ غَيْرِ حَوْلٍ مِّنِّي وَلَا قُوَّةٍ

Translation: All praise is due to Allah who has clothed me with this garment and given it to me without any effort or power.

Leaving the house dua

In an age of so much Fitnah, both inside and outside the house, this one’s a must!

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللّٰهِ وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللّٰهِ

Translation: In the name of Allah, I have placed my trust in Allah; there is no might and no power except by Allah.

Translation: Glory be to the one who has placed this (transport) at our service and we ourselves would not have been capable of that, and to our Lord we will surely return.

(Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi)
