What to pray for in New York
When it comes to prayer, there are always many things to pray for in any given city, but what should Christians specifically pray for in New York? Here are five things to pray for when visiting or living in the Big Apple:
1. Protection from natural disasters and terrorist attacks: New York City is a particularly vulnerable location, and has faced several natural disasters in recent years, including Hurricane Sandy and the bombings at the Chelsea bombing. There’s also been a rise in terrorism in the city, with recent threats made against Jewish community centers and a Sikh temple. Pray for protection from these dangers and for a restoration of peace and safety.
2. A healthy population: From weather catastrophes to terrorist threats, New York City often experiences serious health problems that affect both its citizens and visitors. Pray for continued health and well-being, especially for those who are most vulnerable – the elderly, children, and those with chronic illnesses.
3. Economic stability: New York City has always been a major center of finance, commerce, arts, and culture – it’s no wonder that there are so many temptations and dangers along with opportunities here. Please help keep the economy strong so that everyone can prosper.
