The Pumpkin Prayer

The Pumpkin Prayer

 

Dear God

As I carve my pumpkin, help me pray this prayer:

Open my mind

so I can learn about you

(Cut off the top of a pumpkin)

Know that the LORD is God.

Psalm 100:3

 

Take all my sin and forgive

the wrong that I do.

(Clean out the inside)

 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins…

John 1:9

 

Open my eyes

so Your love I will see

(Cut out eyes shaped liked hearts)

Open my eyes so that I may see

wonderful things….

Psalm 119:18

 

I’m sorry for the times I’ve turned my nose up at what You have given me

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

Create in me a clean heart, O God.  Psalm 51:10

 

Open my ears so Your Word I will hear

(Cut out ears shaped like the Bible)

Come to me with your ears wide open. Isaiah 55:3

 

Open my mouth to tell others

You’re near.

(Cut out the mouth in the shape of a fish)

I … will live to tell what the Lord has done Psalm 118:17

 

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

(Place a candle inside and light it!)

You’re here to be light… Shine!

God is not a secret to be kept…Prompt people to open up with God, our generous Father in heaven.  Matt. 5:16
