On Sunday Nik Wallenda was worshipping on a tightrope above a gorge near the grand canyon (they wouldn't let him do it in the Grand Canyon}.  He had no harness and no net, just a pole!  (He walked across a span that was about 1400 feet. It took him 22 minutes to do it. It was around 1500 feet down to the riverbed below him. He prayed almost constantly as he walked, and he also talked quite a bit about the wind conditions. Here are the final moments.  When he saw he was almost there, he switched his prayers and started thanking the Discovery Channel.
