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.
