Rule over me this day, O God,
Leading me on the path of righteousness.
Put your word in my mind and your truth in my heart,
That this day I neither think nor feel
Anything except what is good and honest.
Protect me from all lies and falsehood,
Helping me to discern deception wherever I meet it.
Let my eyes always look straight ahead on the road you wish me to tread,
That I might not be tempted by any distraction.
And make my eyes pure,
That no false desires may be awakened within me.
- Jacob Boehme
