Pumpkin Prayer

~I have posted this before, but feel strongly I should post it again..  I think I will make this a yearly post!~

During the month of October, we see lots of scary ghosts, witches, gobblins, and hear scary stories being  told. Why not tell your little ones about our Heavenly Father instead!!



"Pumpkin Prayer"

{cut off top of pumpkin}
Lord, open my mind so I can learn new things about you.

{remove innards}
Remove the things in my life that don’t please you.

Forgive the wrong things I do and help me to forgive others.

{cut open eyes}
Open my eyes to see the beauty you’ve made in the world around me.

{cut out nose}
I’m sorry for the times I’ve turned my nose at the
good food you provide.

{cut out mouth}
Let everything I say please You.

{light the candle}
Lord, help me show your light to others through the things I do. Amen
