Is there a Jewish equivalent to the Islamic chant of "bismillah al-rahman al-rahim" (In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

There are these really dumb and hilarious ghost hunter videos which take place in the Islamic world. Guys go to abandoned houses and ruins in the desert and they seek out the paranormal.

In those videos, when the person is really scared or if they think they’re in the presence of something evil, they’ll start chanting bismillah al-rahman al-rahimIn the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

I’m not Muslim but it’s apparently a chant where you request God to be with you in the present movement. It’s used for a lot of things but in this situation it’s for fear.

Is there an equivalent or similar phrase that Jews repeat or make when they’re scared and are seeking the protection of God? Does anything like Bismillah exist?
