Illumined Path: On The Throne Of My Heart

A Prayer by St Dimitri of Rostov:

Illumined PathOpen, O doors and bolts of my heart that Christ the King of Glory may enter! Enter, O my Light and enlighten my darkness; Enter, O my Life, and resurrect my deadness; Enter, O my Physician and heal my wounds; Enter, O Divine Fire, and burn up the thorns of my sins; Ignite my inward parts and my heart with the flame of Your love; Enter, O my King, and destroy in me the kingdom of sin; Sit on the throne of my heart and alone reign in me, O You, my King and Lord. 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.
