Jelly Bean Prayer


Have you heard the story of the jelly beans?
 
The black ones are a symbol of our sinful heart, cold and hard, not a good start.
 
The red ones would be the blood shed for you and me.
 
The white ones would mean washed white as snow, by the blood of Jesus do you know?
 
The green ones mean growth for our clean heart, so we can tell others of Jesus, now that’s a good start.
 
The yellow ones would mean streets of gold, like the ones in Heaven, as in the book of Revelation are told.
 
The purple ones are to mean like the robe He wore, when our sins on the cross He bore.
 
So the next time you see a bag of jelly beans, you will know what the colors mean.
 
– Another Version –
 
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 bag full of jelly beans colorful and sweet,
Is a prayer,
is a promise,
is a very special treat.
