A Jelly Bean Prayer


Red is for the blood He gave.
Green is for the grass He made.
Yellow
is for the sun so bright.
Orange is for the edge of night.
Black
is for the sins we made.
White is for the grace He gave.
Purple is for His hour of sorrow.
Pink is for our new tomorrow.

A jar full of jellybeans
colorful and sweet,
is a prayer, is a promise,
is a special treat.
May the joy of Christ's resurrection
Fill your hearts and bless your life.

~The Jelly Bean Prayer was written in 1990 by Shirley Kozak from Stuttgart Germany
