Pumpkin Prayer

Beech Springs Baptist Church is having trunk-or-treat from 12 Noon until 3:00 P.M. If it rains, the festivities will be held in the Fellowship Hall, directly behind the "stone" sanctuary. We'll be handing out treat bags that include a Bible marker, a drinking cup, and candy....all with scripture. I really like what our precious church secretary chose to give to the I wanted to share a bit of it with you, my blog readers.

Here is "Pumpkin Prayer":

Dear Jesus,
As I carve my pumpkin, help me pray this prayer:
Open my mind so I can learn about You
(as you cut the top off of the pumpkin)
"Know that the God. (Psalm 100:3)
Take all my sin and forgive the wrong that I do

(as you clean out the inside)

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us. (I John 1:9)
Open my eyes so Your love I will see

(as you cut the eyes shaped like hearts)

Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law (Psalm 119:18)
I'm sorry for times I've turned up my nose at what You've given me.

(as you cut a nose in the shape of a cross)

Create in me a clean heart, O God (Psalm 51:10)
Open my ears so Your Word I will hear

(as you cut ears shaped like the Bible)

Incline your ear, and come to Me (Isaiah 55:3)
Open my mouth to tell others You're near

(as you cut the mouth in the shape of a fish)

(Jesus said) "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5:16)
Let Your Light shine in all I say and do!
Ask God to fill you up so He can shine brightly through you. Share your faith with your friends and neighbors as you tell them about your special pumpkin!!!
Isn't that soooo good?
If you get a chance...and you're a local....please drop by our trunk-or-treat.
There will be lots of games, prizes, candy, food...and FUN!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
