A YEAR IN PRAYER    "Using God's Word to pray"

Do you treat everybody equally and value all men and women the same, regardless of their social status, the color of their skin or the level of their education?

Have you allowed the venom of racism to fill your heart to the point that you now view people according to the color of their skin?

Do you know that God Himself shows no partiality and that there will be no rich and poor, black and white, illiterate and educated issues in hell?
