A query regarding a du’a for Ramadan

Question

I am looking for the reference for this du’a:

Ramadan du’a: Day 7

اَللّهُمَّ اَعِنّي فيهِ عَلى صِيامِهِ وَقِيامِهِ، وَجَنِّبْني فيهِ مِنْ هَفَواتِهِ وَ اثامِهِ، وَارْزُقْني فيهِ ذِكْرَكَ بِدَوامِهِ، بِتَوْفيقِكَ يا هادِي الْمُضِلّينَ

Allahumma a’inni fihi ‘ala siyamihi wa qiyamihi wa jannibni fihi min hafawatihi wa athamihi war zuqni fihi dhikraka bidawamihi bi tawfiqika ya hadiyal mudillin 

Translation: O Allah! on this day, help me with its fasts and prayers, and keep me away from mistakes and sins of the day, grant me that I remember You continuously through the day, by Your assistance, O the Guide of those who stray

 

Answer

This seems to be a suggested du’a to recite. I have not come across these words in any Hadith source. The wording of the du’a is fine so the du’a may be recited without deeming it sourced from Hadith.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
