We are all created in the image of God. No matter the color of your skin, you are valuable and worthy of love. This is exemplified in the Bible.
Biblestudytools.com gives an awesome look into the Word to see what God says about racism, and they offer up this prayer:
Jesus, You see people as precious and valuable. Live that truth through me always. If I’ve wronged someone and racism is the root of that wrong, lead me in reconciliation. Lord, show me my own prejudices so I can seek Your repentance. Guide me to act in ways that lead to true justice. Father God, forgive me for losing sight of the Truth that You created all people in Your image. By Your grace, help me to see hatred – whether initiated or returned – as a tool Satan uses to keep me from experiencing and sharing the richness of Your love. Help me to love the way you love and to spread kindness and mercy as Jesus did. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
1 Corinthians 12:13:
13 For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.
32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
