Prayer Peaks Day 2008
Wanted: Warriors who will climb and pray for the U.S.
By Derek Fullerton
Founder of Prayer Peaks
For a decade Christian hikers and climbers have summited mountain peaks to participate in a unique national day of prayer called “Prayer Peaks.”
The inaugural Prayer Peaks was on July 4, 1998. Each year since then, Prayer Peaks has been scheduled on the Saturday before our nation's birthday. Colorado's 54 “Fourteeners” have served as the focus for this day of prayer. Participants have also joined in from peaks in the Cascades (including an annual gathering on Mount Rainier), the Adirondacks of New York, Connecticut, peaks in eastern Washington, New Mexico, Alaska, Hawaii, Africa, and even from a “highpoint” in Denmark — where there are no mountains.
Our nation has never been in greater need of prayer than at the present time. God longs to be gracious us, but we, His people, need to cry out to Him for His mercy on our land.
Saturday, June 28 was the 11th annual Prayer Peaks.
