Lighting a candle….
Lighting a candle is a prayer…
…when we have gone, it stays alight,
kindling in the hearts and minds of others
the prayer we have already offered
for them and for others:
for the sad, the sick, and the suffering;
and prayers for thankfulness too.
Lighting a candle is a parable…
…burning itself out, it gives light to others.
Christ gave himself for others,
He calls us to give ourselves.
Lighting a candle is a symbol…
…of love and hope, of light and warmth.
Our world needs them all.
Lord, this candle that I have lit,
may it be light from You
to lighten my way through difficulties and decisions.
May it be flame from You
to warm my heart and teach me love.
Lord, I cannot stay long in Your house.
This candle is a little bit of myself that I offer to you.
Help me to continue my prayer
in all that I do this day.
