Father God, let our prayers be counted as incense before you. Watch over the door of our lips. Don’t let our hearts incline to evil deeds. Keep our eyes only toward you, Father. We seek refuge in you. Don’t leave us defenseless. Let your people pass safely by. We lift our hands as the evening sacrifice in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“But my eyes are toward you, O God, my Lord; in you I seek refuge; leave me not defenseless!” (Psalm 141:8 ESV)
