O Lord, you have searched us and known us. You know when we sit down and when we rise up; you discern our thoughts from far away.
Even before a word is on our tongues, O Lord, you know it completely. We cannot flee from your Spirit, nor your presence.
You search out our paths and our lying down, and are acquainted with all our ways.
Search us, O God, and know our heart; test us and know our thoughts. See if there is any wicked way in us, and lead us in the way everlasting.
Through your Son, Jesus Christ, we pray, Amen.
– from Psalm 139
