May Shri Lord Rama bless you all.
1. Rama Stotra in the Vishnu Sahasranama, say this sloka 3 times as mentioned in the sahasranama.

Sahasra Nama Tat Tulyam Rama Nama Varanane
Sri Rama Nama Varanane Iti
2. Next one is what we learnt when we were all young.

3. And of course, Hare Rama Hare Rama
Hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare
Hare Krishna hare Krishna krishna krishna hare hare
