16th annual Prayer Peaks Day – Saturday, June 29, 2013
The goal of Prayer Peaks is to dispatch Christian climbers up the 54 Fourteeners of the Colorado Rockies on a common day and to intercede in prayer for the Christian Church in every state of the United States of America. If you can’t make it to Colorado, climb a “highpoint” in your home state or country.

To let a person die and go to hell when you cou... Read more »
