Light a Candle

Lord, may this candle be a light to enlighten me in my difficulties and decisions.  May it be a fire to burn out of me all pride, selfishness and impurity.  May it be a flame for you to bring warmth into my heart towards my family, my neighbors and all those who meet me.  Through the prayers of Mary, Virgin and Mother,  I place in your care those I come to remember.



I cannot stay long with you here in your church.  In leaving this candle I wish to give you something of myself.  Help me to continue my prayer into everything I do this day. Amen
