showing favouritism in prayer?

Question: In light of what I wrote in my last post, how do you think our judgments or biases or, dare I say, our prejudices connect to and affect our prayers? 

James 2:1-4 says,

“My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don’t show favoritism. Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in shabby clothes also comes in. If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?”

Is there risk of doing this when we pray as well?
