The Pumpkin Prayer

Dear Jesus,

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.

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

2 eggs

1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin puree

1/2 cup canola oil

1 Tbsp. milk

  4. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Stir with a spoon to combine until the batter is smooth.
