The Pumpkin Prayer
As I carve my pumpkin, help me pray this prayer:
Open my MIND so I can learn about you.
Take away my sin and forgive the wrong that I do.
Open my EYES so your love I will see;
I’m sorry for the times I’ve turned up my NOSE at what you’ve given to me.
Open my EARS so your Word I will hear;
Open my MOUTH to tell others you’re near.
Let your light shine in all I say and do. Amen.
