Our Mission:

Prayer Peaks is a Christ-centered ministry dedicated to intercessory prayer for the Church of Jesus Christ from high elevations.

Our Goal:

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 "high-point" in your home state. 


Our Statement of Faith:

Our God:
We believe that there is One God eternally existing in three, co-equal persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; II Corinthians 13:14). 

Our Scriptures:
We believe that the Bible is God's written revelation to man and that it is verbally inspired, authoritative, and without error in the original documents (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21).

Man's Creation & Fall:
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God but through Adam's sin became alienated from God, acquired a sin nature, and came under the judicial sentence of death (Genesis 1:25-27; Romans 3:22-23; Ephesians 2:1-13).

Salvation:
We believe that salvation from sin and death is the gift of God offered to man only by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that this faith is manifested in works pleasing to God (Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 2:11-14).

The Person & Work of Jesus Christ:
We believe that Jesus Christ was completely man and completely God, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, willingly died on a cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrected and ascended into heaven, is currently seated at the right hand of the Father and is interceding for us, and He will return to reign on earth in power and glory (Philippians 2:5-11). 

The Holy Spirit:
We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of new life in an unbeliever and indwells believers, enabling them to live a Godly life until the day of redemption (John 3:5-8; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14). 

The Church:
We believe that the Church is a spiritual organism made up of all born again persons in this age, irrespective of their affiliation with Christian organizations (Ephesians 1:22-23; 5:25-27; I Corinthians 12:12-26). >


WAKE UP CALL TO THE USA:

CHRIST’S CHURCH SHINING BRIGHTLY IS AMERICA’S ONLY HOPE !

"Blessed is the nation whose God is _____???_____ [whoever you want him, her, or it to be (i.e. your idol); sports & entertainment; MONEY; hedonism; sex anyway you want it; secular humanism; atheism..- NO WAY!].  “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.”
           
- PSALM 33:12

“Whereas, it is the duty of nations as well as men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history: that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord…”
            - Abraham Lincoln (16th President)

“If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us [9-11?] and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.”
            - Daniel Webster (U.S. Statesman – 1782-1852)

“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.”
           
– PROVERBS 14:34

“Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, but those who keep the law resist them  [spiritual warfare].”                                                                                   
            - PROVERBS 28:4

“If truth is not diffused, error will be.  If God and His Word are not known and received, the devil and his works will gain the ascendancy.  If the evangelical volume does not reach every hamlet, the pages of a corrupt and licentious literature will.  If the power of the gospel is not felt throughout the length and breadth of this land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness will reign without mitigation or end.”
            - Daniel Webster

"It is time for You to act, O LORD; Your law is being broken."
            - PSALM 119:126

“Gentlemen, I have lived a long time and am convinced that God governs the affairs of men.  If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His air?  I, therefore, move that prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven be held every morning before we proceed to business.” 
            - Benjamin Franklin (his call to prayer that broke the deadlock over
               congressional representation by leading to the “Great Compromise” (i.e. a bicamerial
               legislature) during the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1776).

“No educated man can afford to be ignorant of the Bible.…A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education.”    
            – Theodore Roosevelt (26th President)

“That book [the Bible], Sir, is the Rock upon which our republic rests.”
            – Andrew Jackson (7th President)

“There are a good many problems before the American people today, and before me as President, but I expect to find the solution of those problems just in the proportion that I am faithful in the study of the Word of God.”          
            – Woodrow Wilson (28th President)

“The whole inspiration of our civilization springs from the teachings of Christ and the lessons of the prophets.  To read the Bible for these fundamentals is a necessity of American life.”  
            – Herbert Hoover (31st President)

“We cannot read the history of our rise and development as a nation, without reckoning the place the Bible has occupied in shaping the advances of the Republic.”
            –Franklin D. Roosevelt (32nd President)

“Within the covers of the Bible are all the answers for all the problems men face.  The Bible can touch hearts, order minds and refresh souls.”
            – Ronald Reagan (40th President)

“It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God or the Bible.”
            – George Washington (1st President)

“It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.”
            – George Washington (1st President)

“Direct my thoughts, words and work.  Wash away my sins in the immaculate Blood of the Lamb, and purge my heart by Thy Holy Spirit…Daily frame me more and more into the likeness of Thy Son Jesus Christ.”          
            – George Washington (in his prayer book)

“The foundations of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country.”                 
            – Calvin Coolidge (30th President)

“I have always said, and always will say, that the studious perusal of the Sacred Volume will make us better citizens, better fathers and better husbands.”            – Thomas Jefferson (3rd President)

“I believe the Bible is the best gift God has given to man.”
            – Abraham Lincoln (16th President)

“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven.  We have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity.  We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown.  But we have forgotten God.  We have forgotten the gracious Hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.

Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! It behooves us then to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.”
            – Abraham Lincoln (in declaring a day of national fasting, prayer, and humiliation –
               1863)

 “…the Bible, the Word of God, has made a unique contribution in shaping the United States as a distinctive and blessed nation and people…Deeply held religious convictions springing from the Holy Scriptures led to the early settlement of our nation…Biblical teachings inspired concepts of civil government that are contained in our Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States" (United States Congress’s Public Law 97-280 – proclaiming 1983 as the “Year of the Bible”).

“The church is Jesus’ bride, body and building.  We are a colony of heaven – outposts of another kingdom.  These outposts should be expressions of Jesus’ presence and power.  The power of the world to come must be evident in our churches.  The supernatural should be normal in the life of the church.”                                         
            – Pastor Ron Phillips

“If you can fully explain a church, then something’s wrong.  If a church is only methodology and organizational technique and clever advertising, it is a departure from what God planned it to be.  There should always be the element of supernatural assistance that is unexplainable to the natural mind.”                                       
            – Pastor Jim Cymbala

“It is not enough to teach and preach about the Spirit.  We must experience Him personally in new depths, or we will accomplish little.  Without the Holy Spirit there is no quickening of the Scripture.  Worship is hollow.  Preaching is mechanical, never piercing the heart.  Conviction of sin is almost nonexistent.  Faith is more mental than heartfelt.  Prayer meetings fade away.  Church meetings become routine.  And the Christian people stay lukewarm at best.”
            – Pastor Jim Cymbala

“Follow after holiness; it is the Christian’s crown and glory.  An unholy church!  It is useless to the world, and of no esteem among men.  It is an abomination, hell’s laughter, heaven’s abhorrence.  The worst evils which have ever come upon the world have been brought upon her by an unholy church.”                                               
            – Charles Spurgeon

“…I will build My church, and the gates of hell will not overcome it.”
           
– MATTHEW 16:18

AND FINALLY,

"if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."                                                           
            – 2 CHRONICLES 7:14

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."
           
– ISAIAH 41:10
