A prayer of St. Dimitry of Rostov

Open, 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 Thy love; enter, O my King, and destroy in me the kingdom of sin; sit on the throne of my heart and reign in me alone, O Thou, my King and Lord.
