Pause + Pray

One Candle Lighting Another


Throughout the day, we encounter a variety of people who may be strangers. May this prayer support you in knowing that what you give to all brightens the world.


God, gently remind me
that how I treat
every single person today matters.
Help me give true kindness
to all who cross my path,
and to see all interactions
as a chance to pass on Christ’s love,
as simple as one candle
reaching out to light another.


Today, see who you meet. Whether on the phone, in stores, at street corners–no matter how brief, offer them a little extra warmth from your heart.
