Prayer for Lighting a Candle

Last night when I went into the chapel the sanctuary lamp was about to burn out. So I went and got a new candle for it. I was surprised to see the prayer that was printed on the outside of its plastic wrapping.

Translated, the prayer says –

O Lord, may I be present in this candle, which consumes itself before you.

That seems to me like a good prayer to say whenever you light a candle in church!
