How to make dua for need?

Q:

Assalamualaikum. My visa has rejected. I decided to appeal although the lawyer couldn’t confirm any hope and only said that as I followed all the procedure of applying visa legally, it upto the court to decide.
But I believe only Allah can give us hope and the only decision maker.
How can I keep faith and pray or make dua to win the appeal? Please suggest me. I really need this visa. I believe from my heart only Allah Svt can grant this.

Alaykum Al-Salam

First we should believe Allah wants the best for us even though sometimes we don’t like it.
عَسَىٰ أَنْ تَكْرَهُوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَكُمْ ۖ وَعَسَىٰ أَنْ تُحِبُّوا شَيْئًا وَهُوَ شَرٌّ لَكُمْ
it is possible that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and that you love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knows, and you know not.
second there are Duas by our Imam which could help you to get your wishes sooner if it is good for you such as

اَللّـهُمَّ مَنْ تَعَبَّأَ وَتَهَيّأَ وَاَعَدَّ وَاسْتَعَدَّ لِوِفادَة اِلى مَخْلُوق رَجاءَ رِفْدِهِ وَطَلَبَ نائِلِهِ وَجائِزَتِهِ فَاِلَيْكَ يا رَبِّ تَعْبِيَتى وَاسْتِعْدادي رَجاءَ عَفْوِكَ وَطَلَبَ نائِلِكَ وَجائِزَتِكَ فَلا تُخَيِّبْ دُعائي يا مَنْ لا يَخيبُ عَلَيْهِ سائِل……
or there is a Salawat Zarrab Isfahani
