Color My World with God, Children, and Prayer

Color My World with God, Children, and Prayer

Have you ever colored or painted a picture with your children while talking about colors and their symbolism in the Bible? Even better, how can we teach them to associate colors with simple, specific prayers?

Red is one of our favorite colors, representing the blood Jesus shed for our sins. Talking about His love is a great opportunity to talk about how we should love one another, just as Jesus loved us. Since red also represents passion, we can share a prayer.

Father, please grant us a passion for You,

Your Word, Your will, Your wisdom, Your world, and holiness.

Orange moves us think of pumpkins, oranges, and autumn leaves.

Lord of the harvest,

send out laborers into Your fields (Matt. 9:38).

Here we are—send me, my family, my friends, my church.

Most children and adults use yellow to color a sun in the sky.

May our light so shine that others may see our good works

and glorify our Father in heaven (Matt. 5:16).

Our yards or fields display a blanket of green throughout most of the year. Whenever coloring grass we’re reminded:

“The grass withers, the flower fades:

but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”

Isaiah 40:8 (KJV 2000)

Does anyone love the color of the sky as much as I do? It’s such a beautiful blue! While painting or coloring skies, we can discuss the miracle of this verse,

“The heavens declare the glory of God;

and the firmament shows his handiwork.”

Psalm 19:1 (KJV 2000)

And we can’t forget the clouds or snow. Just as God shared the following verse with Isaiah, we can use this as an opportunity to teach our children about why parents discipline their children, discussing past experiences while training their hearts to be wise in their conduct.

“Come now, and let us reason together, said the Lord:

though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;

though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.”

Isaiah 1:18-19 (KJV 2000)

Purple is symbolic of royalty. While coloring flowers or clothing or purple giraffes, we can discuss the fact that we’re citizens of another Kingdom—a Kingdom governed by Jesus. All nations will eventually fall, but we belong to a King and Kingdom that is unshakable and eternal.

I bought a coloring book yesterday. I think it’s time to call the family together to share some fun in the presence of God.

Please share your coloring concepts and experiences with us. We’d love to hear from you!
