THE PUMPKIN PRAYER



I found this on another blog and thought it was awesome. We will be carving our pumpkin like this this year.

The 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 of the pumpkin) - Colossians 3:2

Take away all my sin and forgive me
for the wrong things I do.
(Clean out the inside) - 1 John 1:9

Open my eyes so Your love I will see;
(Cut eyes shaped like hearts) - Psalms 34:8

I'm sorry for turning up my
nose to all You've given me.
(Cut a nose in the shape of the cross) - Psalms 92:1

Open my ears so Your word I will hear;
(Cut ears shaped like the Bible) - Isaiah 55:3

Open my mouth so I can
tell others You're near.
(Cut mounth in the shape of a fish) - Psalms 118:17

Let Your light shine in all
I say and do! Amen.
(Place a candle inside and light) - Matthew 5:16
"Let your light so shine before men, that they
may see your good works and glorify your
Father in heaven."
