Whenever we go to church, Val and I see to it that we offer our prayers and light a candle. We do not bring our own candles since these are readily available. Normally, they sell either white or yellow candles. However, some churches especially monasteries sell different colored ones.
I found out that different colors have different meanings and we can simply choose what color we need depending on our prayer intentions.
