Jelly Bean Prayer


Red is for the blood He gave.

Green is for the grass He made.

Yellow is for His 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 bag full of jelly beans,

Colorful and sweet—

            Is a prayer…

Is a promise…

Is anyone’s treat!
