Using candles to help you pray for help from angels is a beautiful way to express your faith because candle flames give off light that symbolizes faith. Various colored candles represent the different types of light ray colors that correspond to the different types of work angels do, and the red angel prayer candle relates to the red angel light ray, which represents wise service. The archangel in charge of the red ray is Uriel, the angel of wisdom.

Energy Attracted

Wisdom for making the best decisions (especially about how to serve God in the world).


Along with your red angel prayer candle, you may want to use crystals that serve as tools for prayer or meditation. Many crystals vibrate to the various energy frequencies of angelic light.

Crystals that relate well to the red light ray include:

  • Amber
  • Fire opal
  • Malachite
  • Basalt

Essential Oils

You can complement your prayer candle with essential oils (the pure essences of plants) that contain powerful natural chemicals with different types of vibrations that can attract different types of angelic energy. Since one of the ways in which you can release essential oils into the air is through burning candles, you may want to burn an essential oil in a candle at the same time as you're burning your red angel prayer candle.

Some essential oils associated with red ray angels are:

  • Black pepper
  • Carnation
  • Frankincense
  • Grapefruit
  • Melissa
  • Petitgrain
  • Ravensara
  • Sweet marjoram
  • Yarrow

Prayer Focus

Before lighting your red candle to pray, it's helpful to choose a place and time in which you can pray without becoming distracted. You can focus your prayers to God, Uriel, and other red light ray angels on seeking the wisdom you need for service. Pray to be able to discover, develop, and use the distinctive talents that God has given you to contribute to the world in the ways God intends for you to make it a better place. Ask for guidance about which specific people God wants you to serve, as well as when and how God wants you to help them.

You can ask for help developing the compassion you need to care about the needs of people whom God wants you to help, as well as the courage and empowerment you need to serve them well.

Uriel and the red ray angels who serve under his leadership can also shed light on the dark aspects within you (such as selfishness and worry) that are preventing you from serving others to the fullest. When you pray, they can help you move beyond those obstacles and grow to become a person who serves others in ways that draw them toward God.
