Make a Wordless Prayer Book!

Color's of Christ Poem




The Color's of Christ poem is based on the Wordless Book, but I've added a few extra colors to tell the Gospel Story. Make your own wordless book using colored cardstock paper or craft foam sheets. Punch holes on one side of each page, then tie the pages together using ribbon or pipe cleaners. You can also make a Wordless Prayer Book by gluing pictures of friends or family that need your prayers onto each of the pages.

Other Uses:  Children can hold up matching colored poster boards while reciting the poem during a children's sermon or use the poem when making the Color's of Christ Cross, Beaded Witness Bracelets or A Jelly Bean Witness.

(Psalm 51:1-2)

GREEN is for our new life in Him.

The colors explained:
Orange: Heaven is a beautiful and wonderful place where God lives. (Revelation 4:1-11)
Yellow: God is perfect and holy. Sin can not be with God. (Revelation 4:8b)
Black: We have huge problem. The Bible tells us that we do wrong things, we sin. It is impossible for us to be perfect! The Bible also tells us that our sins must be punished, and that blood must be shed to cover our sins. (Hebrews 9:22)
Red: The great news is that God loves you and me and sent his perfect SON, Jesus, to be punished in our place. When Jesus died on the cross, he took the punishment that we deserved. (2 Peter 2:21-25.)
White: Only Jesus' perfect blood can make us clean. (Hebrews 9:11-15.) 
Green: God no longer sees us as sinful, but made new in Jesus. We can now grow to be like God, because his Spirit now lives in us. (Romans 8:9 and Colossians 1:10-14.)
Pink: God wants us to share his free gift! (Matthew 28:19-20)
Purple: When you believe in Jesus, you are part of God's royal family. We are a royal priesthood. He has promised his children a crown and a special room in his mansion in Heaven for eternity! (1 Peter 2:9-10, 2 Timothy 4:8, John 14:1-4.)
