Daily Prayer During the Coronavirus Crisis

Prayer #234: For New York City Schools

The largest school district in the country, that of New York City, is poised to possibly close again this coming week. The school system there had closed back in March and then reopened for in-person learning in late September. Back in July, Mayor Bill DeBlasio set a 3% seven-day rolling average of COVID-19 infection rate as the trigger which leads to the closing of the schools. Presently, that rolling average is at 2.8%, after having been between 1 and 2% for some months. DeBlasio stated yesterday that the positivity average may exceed 3% this weekend and that the schools may close as soon as Monday.

Pray for Mayor Bill DeBlasio and New York City as the schools there may be poised to close. Pray for the COVID-19 infection rate to go down. Pray that the schools could then remain open.

Ps. 91:1: "He who dwells in shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty."
