One day I prayed a prayer, Lord, light a candle within that person over there, a small flame to warm the heart.
I prayed that prayer and waited. Somewhat impatiently.
I prayed again, Lord, light a candle within--a flame of hope to warm and encourage. And I waited.
Then I woke in the night, the prayer ready to be sent to heaven once more--when the answer came.
'You be the candle. You be a light. Let another step into its glow and gain courage.'
And my prayer was changed.
Lord make me a candle.
Kindle a flame to warm the heart.
