New York, New York
Ten years ago when the tragedy of 9/11 occured, many opinions were given as to why God allowed this to happen. Some of those opinions were at best very insensitive. I’m not going to try and voice any reason why God allowed 9/11, but I am confident that we can conclude some of the consequences the Lord longed to see result from the event. He surely desired to see brokeness, humility, and lasting recognition of our need for Him. The result though, is that ten years later we are less desperate for Him as a Nation, and New York as a city. Not too many months ago the state of New York approved same sex marriage, and the City has passionately celebrated that decision. I just have a strong sense that God is going to allow New York new opportunities to seek Him. Pray for the Big Apple to see themselves as the Apple of His eye.
