Why do we light a candle when praying?
The light signifies our prayer, which is offered in faith, entering the light of God. It also shows reverence and our desire to remain present in prayer even as we continue on our day. Burning votive candles are a common sight in most Catholic churches.

For a small prayer
00:00(midnight)…Take your candles and put them on a white plate. Use holy ash( if you have it, mix it with water in a bucket )
Pray/phahla and lay all your problems and concerns down. When you are done switch the candle off by hand( do not blow them out, just spit on your thumb and put the flame out). Do this for at least 5-7 days max. On the last day, do not switch them off. Just allow them to burn down. P.s please do a bit of fasting( a light diet or a liquid diet and abstaining from sex is important).
