Prayers for every day life

Lighting a candlecandle

Lord,

may this candle be a light for you to enlighten me

in my difficulties and decisions.

May it be a fire for you to burn out of me all selfishness and sin.

My it be a flame for you to bring warmth into my heart

towards my family, neighbours and all who meet me.

I place in your care those I come now to remember, especailly……..

I cannot stay long here with you:

in leaving this candle I wish to give you something of myself.

Hlep me to continue  my prayer

into everything I do this day.

Amen
