Lead me not into temptation, but deliver me from the Evil One

Father, I pray that You protect me from the temptations of Satan, the evil one.

Guide my path and give me such insight — Your sight — to see beyond my earthly desires.

Help me to understand and long for Your heavenly desire for me.

Help me to follow where You lead and to pitch my hearing to Your Word and Your Way for me.

Let me don Your heavenly eyes that I might see the signs and sights You have prepared for me.

And most importantly, heavenly Lord,

If I wander to close too the thorns and snares of the evil one,

Shelter me, lend me an angel to cover my eyes and protect me under her wing.

Then, sweep away temptation from my path.

Conquer it, oh Holy Protector,

Remove its weight from my heart, and

Reorder my desires again and again to long only for You and Your desires for me.

I pray these things in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

And the Holy Spirit answered in return,

Do not fear, little one. I will never leave you.
