Pumpkin Prayer Printable. Here is a creative way to pray through the pumpkin carving process if you choose to carve a pumpkin. Including a free printable version.
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.
