This is a cute pumpkin activity that Aidan brought home from preschool.  It is called Pumpkin Carving Prayer.  I have never heard this before and I usually have heard of all these little fun things from my teaching days.  Maybe you’ll enjoy this!

Dear God,

As I carve my pumpkin help me say this prayer:

Open my mind so I can learn about You;

(cut off the top of the pumpkin)

Take away all my sin and forgive me for the wrong things I do.

(clean out insides)

Open my eyes so Your love I will see;

(cut the eyes out in heart shapes)

I’m sorry for turning up my nose to all you’ve given me.

(cut a nose in the shape of a cross)

Open my ears so your word I will hear.

(cut ears shaped like the Bible …rectangles)

Open my mouth so I can tell others You’re near

(cut mouth in the shape of a fish…or something else if that is too hard)

Let your light shine in all I say and do!

(place candle inside and light it)
