In Duaa Kumail ben Ziad you can read this:

اَللّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي الذُّنُوبَ الَّتي تَهْتِكُ الْعِصَمَ، اَللّـهُمَّ اغْفِـرْ لِي الذُّنُوبَ الَّتي تُنْزِلُ النِّقَمَ، اَللّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي الذُّنُوبَ الَّتي تُغَيِّـرُ النِّعَمَ، اَللّـهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لي الذُّنُوبَ الَّتي تَحْبِسُ الدُّعاءَ، اَللّـهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي الذُّنُوبَ الَّتي تُنْزِلُ الْبَلاءَ، اَللّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لي كُلَّ ذَنْب اَذْنَبْتُهُ، وَ كُلَّ خَطيئَة اَخْطَأتُها

O Allah, forgive me such sins that affront my continency; O Allah, forgive me such sins that bring down calamity; O Allah, forgive me such sins that change divine favours into disfavours; O Allah, forgive me such sins as would hinder my supplication; O Allah, forgive me such sins that bring down afflictions; O Allah, forgive me such sins that suppress hope; O Allah, forgive every sin that I have committed and every error that I have erred.

  1. What are the sins that affront my continency?
  2. What are the sins that bring down calamity?
  3. What are the sins that change divine favours into disfavours?
  4. What are the sins that would hinder my supplication?
  5. What are the sins that bring down afflictions?
  6. What are the sins that suppress hope?
