Wallenda Defies Death Walking on a Cable Across the Grand Canyon 06/25/2013

Nik Wallenda believes nothing is impossible. That's why he walked across 1,400 feet of the Grand Canyon on a tightrope over 1,500 feet above the groundówithout a safety harness.

High wire artist Nik Wallenda constantly prayed to Jesus as he walked without a harness on a 1,400-foot long high-wire across a 1,500-foot tall gorge, successfully completing the death-defying feat that was broadcast live on the Discovery Channel.

"I don't believe God keeps me on the wire, Wallenda said. "I believe God gives me a unique ability to walk the wire, but it's up to me whether I train properly.

"There's a lot of people that have amazing relationships with Christ that lose their lives in a car accident. Does that mean they didn't have a good enough relationship with Jesus? No. Life happens and God created us all in his image, but we're all our own people. We're not robots. We make decisions.

Wallenda is an amazing athlete. I do not understand him staking his life on a tight rope walk, especially after his grandfather died doing it. But, perhaps it gives him a chance to witness for Christ?
