Lighting candles is a popular spiritual practice that symbolizes the powerful light of faith dispelling the darkness of despair. Since angels are beings of light who work within different colors of light rays when serving people, you may find it helpful to use candles of when you're praying or meditating for help from angels. The blue angel prayer candle relates to protection and power. The angel in charge of the blue ray is Michael, the archangel who leads all of God’s holy angels.

Energy Attracted

Protection from evil and energy to empower you to live faithfully.


You can use crystal gemstones along with your candle to attract the energy of angels who work within the blue light ray. Some of the crystals that correspond to that energy are aquamarine, light blue sapphire, light blue topaz, and turquoise.

Essential Oils

Essential oils are the pure oils that God has created in plants. You can use them as prayer tools along with your blue candle and related crystals—and if you like, you can even burn the oils in candles near your main blue prayer candle to release them into the air around you. Essential oils that vibrate at frequencies within the blue light ray include: aniseed, black pepper, cumin, ginger, lime, mimosa, pine, rose otto, sandalwood, tea tree, vetivert, and yarrow.

Prayer Focus

After you light your candle, pray nearby, asking God to send you the help you need from Michael and the blue ray angels who work under his supervision.

The blue angel light ray represents power, protection, faith, courage, and strength. So when you light a blue candle to pray, you can focus your prayers on discovering God’s purposes for your life and asking for the courage and strength to fulfill them.

You can ask to discover God’s purposes for your life so you can clearly understand them and base your priorities and daily decisions around pursuing those purposes. As you pray, ask for spiritual protection that may try to block you in the process of fulfilling God’s purposes for your life, and for the faith and courage you need to follow wherever God and his angels lead you. Pray for the strength you need to overcome challenges, act on your beliefs with fiery passion, work for justice in the world, take the risks God is calling you to take, develop leadership qualities, and replace negative thoughts that don't reflect spiritual truth with positive thoughts that do reflect what's true.

As you pray for healing from blue ray angels in your life, it can help to keep these special focuses in mind:

  • Body: improving central nervous system function, lowering blood pressure, relieving pain throughout the body, reducing fevers, fighting infections.
  • Mind: alleviating anxiety and worry, clarifying thinking, breaking free of fear.
  • Spirit: breaking free of deception, discovering the truth about God (as well as yourself and other people) so you can approach life with an accurate and eternal perspective, learning how to surrender your will to God's higher will, courage to express your convictions in any situation.
