Deliver Me from Evil
Deliver me from evil – in the thoughts that linger in my mind. Evil thoughts come into my mind, sometimes on invitation, sometimes dressed in garments of innocence. My temptation is to deny that they are there or, worse, to think I have gotten rid of them by pushing them down out of sight in some hidden corner of my mind. Once there, they settle down to reproduce their kind. Deliver me from evil, by strengthening me in honesty, that I may give no quarter to the negative thoughts and their residue in my mind.
