Sunan Abi Dawood 1549
Anas bin Malik narrated that the Prophet ﷺ would say:

"O Allah, I seek refuge in You from a prayer that is of no benefit."
حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُتَوَكِّلِ، حَدَّثَنَا الْمُعْتَمِرُ، قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو الْمُعْتَمِرِ أُرَى أَنَّ أَنَسَ بْنَ مَالِكٍ، حَدَّثَنَا أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم كَانَ يَقُولُ ‏
"‏ اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ صَلاَةٍ لاَ تَنْفَعُ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ وَذَكَرَ دُعَاءً آخَرَ ‏.‏
