A famous prayer by Thomas Ken is:
make the door of this house wide enough to receive all who need human love and fellowship;
narrow enough to shut out all envy, pride and strife.
Make its threshold smooth enough to be no stumbling block to children, nor to straying feet,
but rugged and strong enough to turn back the tempter’s power.
God make the doorway of this house the gateway to thine eternal kingdom.
