Let me be the taper to give your Light.
This morning as I was using a taper to
take the Eternal Flame to the candles on
the altar this simple prayer came to me.
I watched as the flame had to burn and
melt away the candle wax encasing the
taper and thought how I ask for Jesus to
melt away that which I have encased myself
in. I saw how the fibers burned and then
caught the flame, becoming One with it and
asked that I become One with the Eternal
One in this way. And then as the flame grew
stronger I could move the lighted taper
away to bring the Eternal Flame and ignite
the candle wicks on the altar to radiate
this Flame of Life at each of the candles.
So I also ask that the Light be strong in
me and by your hand guide me that others
may be ignited in your Light and shine
ever so brightly.
Yes, Lord let me be the taper to give your Light.
