Time Again, Carving Prayer Pumpkins.....

We have become a new creation when Jesus comes into our heart.

#1 Read Matthew 23:25-28

#2 Revelations 3:20

How is the stuff we pull out of the pumpkin like sin in our hearts ?

( Both yucky, they're inside us )

How is the way we clean out our pumpkin like the way Jesus cleans us out when we confess our sins ?

( All the yucky stuff is taken away )

after you have completed the face of the pumpkin read 2 Cor 5:17 and Ephesians 2:10

How have we made this pumpkin a " New Creation " ?

( It started out only a pumpkin, now it is a Jack-O-Lantern )

How do we become a new creation, when Jesus comes into our hearts ?

(We learn to Love Him more... Our light shines and we become His Children )

#5. Read 2 Corinthians 4:7-10

When Jesus comes into our hearts, we become new creations.

#6. Read Matthew 5:14-16, then light a candle inside the pumpkin

Turn Off Lights

Discuss how God wants our light to shine before others ?

#7. Read 2 Corinthians 4:6

In what way does the candle light come through the pumpkin like, the way God wants our light to shine ?

Sing: This Little Light Of Mine

What happens when we hide our light so that others are unable to see it ?

Bring out a regular pumpkin....

If we live good Christian lives, in Glorifying God, His light will always shine through, no matter what !!!

  1. I've read the prayer before, but love the lessons that we can teach our children along with it! Thanks for the great idea!

    Thank you also for your encouraging words to me. I love it when bloggy pals can share hope with each other.

    I am curious to know what curriculum you are using? Maybe you have it listed on your blog and I just missed it...
