From what I understand, there are three times when one should wash their hands in the method used for negel vasser that occur every day

  1. in the morning (negel vasser)
  2. between going to the bathroom and saying asher yatzar
  3. before davening

Are you supposed to do all three of these every morning or can one washing count for two or all of these?
