Candle Substitutes?

I know we've had a bazillion threads on this... and I can't seem to find any of them. I had a little candle at my desk at work that I lit during my short noontime prayer (and kept lit for about half an hour just as a sort of... observance, I guess). It has come to my attention that open flame is not allowed in the building, so I need to find something else.

I'm looking for something inconspicuous, as I don't generally discuss religion at work, and something that is doable in a work environment (I half-remember a suggestion about colored ice cubes and letting them melt, but I have no way to do that here). I would prefer to have it be something that has an "off" state and an "on" state, to mimic the candle-lighting/extinguishing, but I'll take what I can get. And of course it needs to be firey without being an actual fire hazard.

So... any ideas?

I'm not actually 100% certain that I won't just drop the candle-lighting bit rather than have to "settle" for a substitute, but I thought it was worth looking into before just discarding it.
