The Pumpkin Prayer
The words of The Pumpkin Prayer compare cleaning out and lighting up a pumpkin to being forgiven because of Jesus’ death on the cross and living with the light of Jesus shining in our lives.
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 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.
