Poem - Rainbow Prayer
My Rainbow Prayer - by Helen Kinnett
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet, we all know,
The spectrum of colours, an arc, a rainbow,
So listen, be still and be aware,
Share with me now, my rainbow prayer.
Red – A symbol of God’s eternal love, a heart,
I will never leave you, we’ll never be apart,
A love so great, Jesus died for me,
A love so great, for all to see.
Orange – All the good fruits, of all the earth,
Crucifixion of Jesus, unmeasurable worth,
A golden sun, in the sky, light unfurled,
A candle flame, Jesus, Light of the World.
Yellow – The Lent Lily, showing God’s creation skills,
A field of yellow, a field of daffodils,
The pale moon and the stars so bright,
God, by His hand, created light.
Green – Shoots, plants and a gentle, serene mood,
Growing and sowing, our seeds, our food,
Blades of grass, a new leaf and buds on the trees,
Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prays on His knees.
Blue – Bluebells in woods, shadows on snow,
Signs of new life are starting to grow,
Oceans and streams, the clear summer sky,
Jesus, the Living Water, to you and I.
Indigo – Berries, butterflies and mountains covered in heather,
All the colours of the sky, in stormy weather,
The purple robe, worn by kings from their birth,
The royal symbol, a cloth of great worth.
Violet – A gentle perfume, fragrant and sweet,
Parma Violets, a treat to eat,
A tiny, beautiful, delicate flower,
God always with us, hour by hour.
A rainbow of colours, in the dark, rainy sky,
Reveals God’s great love, He sent Jesus to die,
A rainbow of colours, placed in the sunny sky above,Shows us the promise, of God’s unending love .
