Prayer when lighting a candle
Dear God, our loving Father,
The candles we have lit represent each and every one we love and care for.
Their light also reminds us of Jesus Christ, Your Son, who is the light of the world and the light in
Give us, we pray, comfort in our anxiety and fear, courage and strength in our suffering, patience
and compassion in our caring, consolation in our grieving.
But above all, give us hope now and always, through the same Jesus Christ Our Lord.
