A Pumpkin Prayer

Dear Jesus,

As I carve my pumpkin, help me pray this prayer: 
Open my mind so that I can learn about You;
(cut the top off the pumpkin)
Take all my sin and forgive the wrong that I do.
(clean out the inside)
Open my eyes so Your love I will see;
(cut eyes shaped like hearts)
I’m sorry for times I’ve turned up my nose at what You’ve given to me.
(cut a nose in the shape of a cross)
Open my ears so Your word I will hear;
(cut ears shaped like a Bible)
Open my mouth to tell others You’re near.
(cut the mouth in the shape of a fish)
Let Your light shine in all I say and do!
(place candle inside and light it)
