High-Wire Faith

High-wire artist Nik Wallenda walked across the Grand Canyon this summer with 13 million viewers tuned in live to see him defy gravity for 23 minutes.

But with all eyes on him, the outspoken Christian made sure others knew where his faith was. During one wobbly moment of his 1,400-foot trek, Wallenda said, “Wind—go away, in the name of Jesus. Thank You, Lord. Thank You for calming that cable, Lord. Oh, yeah. That’s my Savior. That’s Jesus.” That night Twitter was filled with millions of tweets about Jesus as a result of Wallenda’s proclamation.
