Hazrat Abu Saeed Khudri (radhiallaho anho) reports that a person came to Rasulullah (sallellaho alaihe wasallam) and said: “I have been overcome by worries and debts(that I am consumed by the worry of the payment of my huge debts). Rasulullah (sallellaho alaihe wasallam) replied: “Should I not show you such a dua which, if you read it, Allah Ta’ala will remove your worries and will fulfill your debts?” The person exclaimed: “Please do tell me.” Rasulullah (sallellaho alaihe wasallam) said: “Recite the following every morning and evening:
اَللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّىْ اَعُوْذُبِكَ مِنَ الْهَمِّ وَالْحُزْنِ وَاَعُوْذُبِكَ مِنَ الْعَجْزِ وَالْكَسَلِ وَاَعُوْذُبِكَ مِنَ الْبُخْلِ وَالْجُبْنِ وَاَعُوْذُبِكَ مِنْ غَلَبَةِ الدَّيْنِ وَقَهْرِ الرِّجَالِ
O Allah! I seek refuge in You from grief and worries, and I seek refuge in You from being unable (to do what is required) and from laziness and cowardice, and I seek refuge in You from excessive debts and from being overpowered by people.”(Mishkaat pg.215) — more readable format available here

There are four actions which if one adopts, Insha Allah, he will become a wali (friend of Allah) before he passes away. With the barakah of practicing these four actions, Insha Allah, he will gain the ability to practice all the other commandments of deen. This is because generally people find these actions to be hard on the nafs. Like the student who manages to answer the difficult questions on a test will have no problem answering the easy ones. So, the one who suppresses his nafs for the pleasure of Allah and carries out these actions, practicing deen will become easy for him, and he will die as a Wali (friend) of Allah.
