I can remember sitting there in that little yellow chair, decked out in my Easter Sunday dress, hat, and gloves, sorting out jelly beans for the jelly bean prayer. This little prayer has told the story of Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross for generations!
Not only the children in my Sunday school class that day, but children all over the world have clearly understood the love of Jesus through this little prayer. I suppose it’s safe to say that I have fond memories of it, don’t ya think?
So you can imagine my bewilderment when I was standing in the Target aisle with my children looking at jelly beans.
“Oh, I love the jelly bean prayer,” I declared to anyone who would listen. And those sweet little kids who call me mom looked up and said, “What’s the jelly bean prayer?”
Gasp! How on earth could I have failed so miserably as a mother? Ha ha. I can’t even imagine how my children didn’t know of this sweet little prayer, but I know of a way to fix it. Jelly Bean Prayer Printables, of course!
The printable fits nicely on a standard-sized party favor bag. (I always print on cardstock for better durability.) Then fold the bag down and fill with the desired amount of jelly beans. Note: you will want to buy the “classic” Brach’s jelly beans. If you buy other brands, check to see if the colors are the same.
Whether you will use this for your children, a Sunday School class, or even your neighbors, I pray that you will be blessed as you bless others this Easter!
