    A Prayer When Lighting A Candle

    O Blessed Lord, accept this burning candle as a sign of my faith and love for you.
    Like this candle, I am ready to be used in your service, without asking why and to what purpose.
    Even as this candle, I wish to stand in your presence to be consumed in the light and warmth of
    your love.
    Please hear my prayer and, if it be your will, grant my petition.
    Above all, make me loyal and faithful to you in all circumstances of my life.
    Amen.

    Candle Lighting Prayer

    Dear God, our loving Father,
    The candles we have lit represent each and every one of us whose lives have been touched and
    changed forever by cancer.
    Their light also reminds us of Jesus Christ, Your Son, who is the light of the world and the light in
    our darkness.
    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.
    Amen.

    Catholic Candle Prayer

    Lord Jesus Christ, true light that enlightens every man who comes into this world,
    Bestow thy blessing upon these candles, and sanctify them with the light of thy grace.
    As these tapers burn with visible fire and dispel the darkness of night,
    So may our hearts with the help of thy grace be enlightened by the invisible fire of the splendor of
    the Holy Ghost, and may be free from all blindness of sin.
    Clarify the eyes of our minds that we may see what is pleasing to thee and conducive to our
    salvation.
    After the dark perils of this life, let us be worthy to reach the eternal light.
    Through thee, Jesus Christ, Savior of the world, who in perfect Trinity liveth and reigneth, God, forever and ever.
    Amen.
