Every human being thinks about his protection and tries to avoid things which may risk his safety. As Muslims we all believe that no harm can befall us except what is written for us. Prophet Muhammad recommended many duas for seeking protection including Quranic verses of Surah Baqarah.
It is reported in Sahih Hadith which is in Sahih Bukhari & Sahih Muslim that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) whoever recites the last two verses of Surah Baqarah, they will be sufficient for him.
Similarly another dua was recommended by our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) which is also narrated in Bukhari (6346) & Muslim (2730).
The translation of the dua is “(There is no god but Allah, the Almighty, the Forbearing; there is no god but Allah, Lord of the Mighty Throne; there is no god but Allah, Lord of the heavens, Lord of the earth and Lord of the noble Throne)”
