Embracing Faith Through Prayer

“So God created humans in his own image, in the image of God,

he created them; male and female, he created them.” -Genesis 1:27

February marks Black History Month, a yearly observance that celebrates African Americans, their history, achievements, and their role in the history of the United States.

Throughout the month, people often celebrate Black History Month by organizing and attending events, raising awareness through online media, and deep reflection.

Regardless of how you celebrate Black History Month, it is essential to include prayer in your observances.

I Dream a World (1)

I dream a world where a woman and man No other woman and man will scorn, Where love will bless the earth And peace, its paths adorn I dream a world where all Will know sweet freedom’s way, Where greed no longer saps the soul Nor avarice blights our day. A world I dream where black or white, Whatever race you be, Will share the bounties of the earth And every woman and man is free, Where wretchedness will hang its head And joy, like a pearl, Attends the needs of all humans - Of such I dream, my world! -Langston Hughes
