I’ll bet there will be a rush to convert to Christianity after this.

The prayer before he started and his constant verbal expression of faith was certainly a witness. We need more of those strong Christians who openly express their faith without reservation like he did before, during, and after his crossing. I pray God protects him throughout all of his feats.

Wallenda performs without a safety net or harness. “My great-grandfather taught that safety nets offer a false sense of security,” he explains. He notes that a safety net is no guarantee – an uncle was killed while performing despite falling into a safety net. However, he says he does not have a “death wish in any way. I plan on living and dying a natural death when I’m old.” Asked about fear, he remarked “I would say the only thing I fear is God. He adds that his Christian faith allows him to “know where I’m going to go when I die ... I’m not scared of dying.

Wallenda says that the high-wire performance is not a daredevil act or a mere stunt, but rather an athletic feat requiring great physical training ] “I see a stunt as somebody who gets in a barrel and goes over the edge and hopes they don’t hit a rock,” he said commenting on his walk across Niagara Falls. “What I do is very calculated. I train a long time for it and I consider it more of an art. I guess I don’t get offended by [people] calling it a stunt, but to me it’s more of an art than anything.” He aims to be “over-prepared” for every event he does, training six hours a day, six days a week. He does ten hours of weight training and five hours of aerobic exercise each week. Even so, he says wire walking is primarily a mental skill.

His faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is as amazing as his ability to tightrope.

My wife and I heard the same as you: “Source of my strength”

Does “sorcerer of my strength” make sense?

This is not the sort of thing that attracts me as entertainment, so I did not watch.
However, I am glad that he is safe.
What did he do exactly?

I could never figure out why somebody would say "lead a snot into temptation," even though I figured it was a good place for them.
