St Nikolai of Zica

Come closer to me, closer still, O majestic Son of God. Descend deeper into my heart than any emotion, or desire, or passion of the world can descend into it. Protect my heart from the countless merchants, from the numerous buyers and sellers, who are forever swarming in legions around my young and inexperienced heart. And teach my heart not to be crazy about the motley illusions of people and things. Take up Your abode in the bottom of my heart, as the master of a house does in his own home, my beloved, and be for me a merciless judge and a sagacious counselor.
