A Prayer of Watch, from Daily Prayer for All Seasons

Hidden God, ever present to me,
may I now be present to you,
attentive to your every word,
attuned to your inspirations,
alert to your touch.
Empty me that I may be filled with you alone.

Psalm 54

  Save me, O God, by your Name; *
in your might, defend my cause.
  Hear my prayer, O God; *
give ear to the words of my mouth.
  For the arrogant have risen up against me, and the ruthless have sought my life, *
those who have no regard for God.
  Behold, God is my helper; *
it is the Lord who sustains my life.
  Render evil to those who spy on me; *
in your faithfulness, destroy them.
  I will offer you a freewill sacrifice *
and praise your Name, O LORD, for it is good.
  For you have rescued me from every trouble, *
and my eye has seen the ruin of my foes.
