صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: مفاتيح القلب، حفظ القلب، الإيمان القويم - رسم أمجد وديع.

An evil thought occurred to Lucy’s mind. She kept silent for a while thinking how such a thought occurred to her. It was Satan knocking the door of her heart so that she might open to him. He would then enter and reign over her. Lucy knelt down and said to Lord Jesus Christ, “Lord Jesus Christ, I fear to open the door lest the enemy should break through it and sit on your throne inside me. Please Lord, open the door yourself.”

Lord Jesus Christ opened the door to find the evil one escaping and saying, “It’s a wrong address.”

Lord Jesus closed the door of Lucy’s heart Himself and declared the establishment of His joyful kingdom in her.

Lord, put a guard over the doors of my heart; guard them Yourself.

The enemy will then escape never to return.

You are the Key of David, who opens the doors of my heart,

So that the righteous would enter.

You close the doors of my heart.

Thus, the enemy would never dare to knock them.

You are my victory and joy.
