Pumpkin Prayer

We got this beautiful Pumpkin Prayer from church....

Dear Jesus, as I carve my pumpkin, help me pray this prayer:
         Open my mind so I can learn about YOU (Cut the top off the pumpkin)
         Take all my sins & forgive the wrong that I do  (Cut out the inside)
         Open my eyes so Your love I will see (Cut eyes shaped like hearts)
          I'm sorry for the times I've turned my nose up 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! (Place a candle inside & light it)
