New York City is unlike any other city in the world. In 2010 it was called the city with the largest global impact and influence in the world. Think of it like the city of Rome during ancient times. The Big Apple is considered to be the financial, cultural, music, and fashion capital of the world. What happens in New York City ends up happening everywhere!
It is the most powerful city in America based on economy, research and development, cultural interaction, livability, environment and accessibility.
Despite all this power and influence, 8.3 million New Yorkers do not have the assurance of eternal life because there are not enough workers in this field to share the Gospel.
Pray for NYC. Pray God will open hearts to hear His message of love and hope. Pray God will speak through us as we walk through neighborhoods and ride subways and buses. Pray God will bring revival to New York … to the Capital of the World.
