We often light a candle to help us in our prayers; the flame of a candle can represent the light of Christ shining in the darkness of our lives; it can represent the flame of love and peace, and be used to pray for healing, or to offer a difficult situation to God; the flame of a candle can also represent the memory of a loved one which will never be extinguished.
Find some time to be quiet, and focus on the light of this candle.
Loving God, as I focus on this candle remind me that you are warm and loving, that you call me to live in your light
… kindle the flame of your love in me.
