Pumpkin Prayer

Dear God,

As I carve my pumpkin help me say this prayer:

Open my mind so I can learn about You;

(Cut the top off the pumpkin)

Take away all my sin and forgive me for the wrong things I do.

(Clean out the inside)

Opean my eyes so Your love I will see;

(Cut the eyes out in heart shapes)

I'm so sorry for turning up my nose to all you've given me.

(Cut a nose out in the shape of a cross)

Open my ears so your word I will hear.

(Cut the ears shaped like the Bible - rectangles)

Open my mouth so I can tell others You're near

(cut the mouth in the shape of a fish)

Let Your light shine in all I say and do! Amen.

(Place a candle inside and light it)
