Most Superior way of asking for Forgiveness from Allah

The Messenger of Allaah – may peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him – said :
Indeed the major supplication for forgiveness is to say
اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي لا إِلَهَ إِلا أَنْتَ خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ وَأَبُوءُ لَكَ بِذَنْبِي فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلا أَنْ

“Allaahumma anta rabbee, la ilaha illa anta, Khalaqtanee, wa ana abduka,
wa ana ala ahdika wa wa’dika mastata’tu, a’outhu bika min sharri ma
sanatu, aboo’u laka bini’matika alayya, wa aboo’u bitahmbee, faghfirlee
fa’innahu la yaghfiru ath-thunooba ‘illa ‘anta”
[ Sahih Bukhari Vol.8 Hadith no:318]
“O Allaah You are my Lord, there is none worthy of worship in truth except You, You created me and I am Your slave and I am abiding to Your covenant and promise as best as I can, I seek refuge in You from the evil that I have committed, I profess to you my sins and I acknowledge Your favour upon me, so forgive me verily no one forgives sins except you.”
So if the worshipper says this when the morning arrives, truly believing in it and he dies enters Paradise, and if he says this when the evening arrives truly believing in it enters Paradise.
