We invite you to share your prayer request(s) with us so that we can intercede with you and take your concerns before the Lord in prayer. As you can see on our website, we offer several ways to do this.

This page profiles how we would consider it an honor to light a candle and pray on your behalf (or the person you designate) during a special ceremony in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Your candle can be lit in honor of a loved one now in heaven or as part of a focus on you, your needs, or the needs of a loved one.

Your prayer request can be sent to us when you place your order. Note: If you desire, you can request that we read one of the prayers listed HERE along with the prayer request you send with your order.

During the candle lighting ceremony in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, we will light your candle, hold your printed prayer request near the Stone of Anointing, read your request(s), and intercede for you in prayer. 

Our staff will photograph the ceremony, blow out your candle after a time of prayer, and email photos to you.

Those who order the Gift of Light candle will have their candle shipped from Jerusalem in a beautifully crafted olive wood box made in Israel. 
God does not command believers to light candles in a church, but the practice is an expression of faith that commemorates and celebrates the work of Christ. In lighting candles, we profess our faith and acknowledge that Jesus, the “Light of the world,” is the one who cares (1 Peter 5:7), forgives (1 John 1:9), and answers prayers (Matthew 7:7). 

Rituals and ceremonies are not requisites to prayer, but they hone our focus and remind us of the timeless and unchangeable aspects of the faith. As we light candles, we reflect on the Light who came into the world and taught us how to pray (Matthew 6; John 17) and how we are to pray for others. 

 The miracle of Holy Fire in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre makes the candle-lighting ceremony even more precious as it reminds the faithful that long ago, a glorious light appeared in the tomb where the friends placed the body of Jesus. That light, witnessed in the first Church of the Holy Sepulchre many centuries ago, has remained one of the mysteries of these hallowed grounds through the ages. 

Christians are to pray, love the Light, and shine their light. We also believe the Candle and Prayer services we provide help individuals move toward fulfilling these objectives.
