Illumined Path: His Door Is Always Open

From St. Tikhon of Zadonsk:

Illumined PathPrayer does not consist merely in standing and bowing your body or in reading written prayers. … It is possible to pray at all times, in all places, with mind and spirit. You can lift up your mind and heart to God while walking, sitting, working, in a crowd and in solitude. His door is always open, unlike man’s. We can always say to Him in our hearts Lord, Lord have mercy.

Illumined Path, providing reflections on finding Christ in our everyday lives, is a ministry of St. Elia the Prophet Orthodox Christian Church in Akron, Ohio.
