Free Pumpkin Prayer
From Christian Preschool Printables, “This is an adorable Pumpkin Prayer PDF that takes children through the carving of a pumpkin with special qualities to remember and thank God for.”
Examples of the pumpkin prayer:
[Cut off the top]
Lord, open my mind and fill me with your wisdom and guidance.
[Scoop out the yuckies]
Lord, take out all my fussies and frownies and fill me with your love.
[Carve Out the Nose]
Lord, help me to be a sweet, sweet fragrance for you.
[Carve Out the Eyes]
Lord, open my eyes to see all of the beautiful things you have made.
[Carve out the mouth]
Lord, help me always speak Your words of love and kindness.
[Place a candle]
Lord, let me be a light to others for you have filled me with your light.
You can use this on the Sunday before Halloween, or as a special craft during your church’s Halloween-alternative outreach event.
