Light, heat, warmth
Consider the candle flame, its warmth, its light.
Let this light illuminate your thoughts and this warmth draw out your burdens. Perhaps you are in need of forgiveness or need to forgive.
Take as much time as needed.
When you feel led, write your prayer request or supplication, a name or a word that has meaning to you on a slip of paper, set it in the container —giving it to God.
Then light a votive candle as an ikon of your prayer.
Dispel my illusions, Jesus, that I might see the wisdom of your way.
May your light guide me always and give me strength.
