Jelly Bean Prayer

When you take a jelly bean, examine the color, listen, and offer a short prayer.

  • Pink: Where has the Spirit been moving? Do you sense any prompting?
  • Red: What are you avoiding? Where do you need support?
  • Orange: Name a blessing. Express gratitude.
  • Yellow: What have you lost? What hurts? Cry out.
  • Green: Where is there new life? What needs redemption or resurrection?
  • Purple: Reflect on the life & teachings of Jesus. Where should you follow?
  • Black: Memento Mori. Consider your death.
  • White: Where do you sense peace? Where can you help make peace?

I invented this prayer yesterday during our now-annual Good Friday bonfire service. Thanks to my spouse for helping with the colors. 

May this be useful to you.
