You very likely will have to call a certified HVAC tech to relight the pilot light (see here:http://www.ehow.com/how_12157747_troubleshoot-lennox-elite-furnace-g26.html).

Unlike a propane heater this type of furnace very likely has some form of ignition system (go here for more: http://www.heatingandairparts.com/documents/G26%20SERVICE.pdf) as a safety and efficiency feature. So if the pilot has gone out it likely means there is an issue with the furnace and/or ignition system that is keeping it from lighting.

One way to check is to look for the LED error/fault code display on the furnace. To find out where the display is located, how to read the code and what it may mean you can go here: http://www.cozyparts.com/Lennox-Parts/forum/Lennox_service_manual/Furnaces/G26_08-01-2004.pdf.

In any event, you will need a certified HVAC tech to come out and properly diagnose and fix the problem. You can find one in your area here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.

Good luck!

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.  To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
