A Prayer with a Candle

candle-march-08-009.jpg 

My Lord and my God –

thank you for drawing me to Yourself …

Keep the burning of my desire for you

as clear and steady as the flame of this candle,

– a single, undivided focus of attention,

a steady offering of the will.

Let my whole being be filled with Your light

so that others may be drawn to You.

Let my whole being be cleansed by the flame of Your love

from all that is contrary to Your will for me …

– my Lord and my God.

Margaret Dewey (abbreviated)
