Resume/ How to Ask Not to Contact Current Employer

I'm looking for a new job. I would prefer that prospective employers not contact my current employer.

Straight up I don't want my current employer to know I'm looking. I would expect personal and work related reprisals. (I've seen this happen to others and it can be vicious.)

What is a good way of saying on an application or resume, this is why I prefer you do not contact my current employer?
