Pumpkin Prayer Poem

Dear Jesus,

As I carve my pumpkin, help me say this prayer:

Open my mind, so 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 so sorry for times I’ve turned up my nose at what you’ve given to me.

(Cut a nose in the shape of the cross.)

Open my ears, so your Word I will hear;

(Cut ears shaped like the 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! Amen.

(Place a candle inside, and light it.)

I am not sure who the author is, if anyone knows, please feel free to share. There are a few variations of this Pumpkin Prayer too. This might be a creative way to carve a pumpkin, since the Jack O’Latern has evil roots.
