Our candle lighting prayer

PRAYER composed by Mgr Peter Cookson to be used during the service at the lighting of candles

Dear God, our loving Father,

The candles we have lit represent each and every one of us

whose lives have been touched

and changed forever by cancer.

Their light also reminds us of Jesus Christ,

your Son, who is the Light of the World

and the light in our darkness.

Give us, we pray,

comfort in our anxiety and fear,

courage and strength in our suffering,

patience and compassion in our caring,

consolation in our grieving;

But above all give us hope

Now and always

Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord
