Prayers from the air

By Jim Spellman, CNN

Colorado Springs, Colorado (CNN) — They call Colorado Springs “Little Jerusalem” for good reason.

Christian churches from mega to micro dot this city nestled against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and prayer is an integral part of the lives of many of the worshipers who fill those pews.

Most prayers start on the ground and are sent heavenward. But helicopter pilot Will Sanders is taking prayer to the air by flying pastors up to the skies to pray down on the people below.

“I believe prayer works, and I want to take prayer warriors up to pray for their community. Inspire them to see it from a different angle, from a different view,” he said.

Sanders earns a living running Colorado Vertical, giving tours of the area in his Raven II four-seat helicopter. About once a month he opens his chopper up to local pastors, who fly over their churches and areas of the city they think are experiencing hardship and pray for them.

“Pastors know their areas, they know where people are hurting, where people need prayer, where people need help, and I can take them over those areas,” Sanders says.

He says that flying is a profoundly spiritual experience.

Helicopter pilot Will Sanders takes local pastors up in the air to pray over Colorado Springs.

“I see God’s creation. I do believe God created this world, and I see that in nature. When I fly I see the fingerprints of God.”

On a sunny winter day, he meets two pastors from Vanguard Church, Alan Briggs and Jonathan Madrid. It’s Briggs’ third trip and Madrid’s first. As evangelical Christians, they said prayer is an essential part of their faith.

“I care so much for our city that I’ll do anything, and so just starting with prayer is what I think we need to do,” Briggs said.

“I think the first thing we need to be doing as a city, as a body of believers, is to get down on our knees and pray,” Madrid said.

Sanders with pastors Jonathan Madrid, left, and Alan Briggs of Vanguard Church in Colorado Springs.

The tower clears the helicopter for takeoff, and a few minutes later we are cruising over the city. The prayers fly over the tinny audio of the headset microphones, with Briggs and Madrid taking turns.

“We pray that you bring the needs of the city to these churches that they may be able to help.”

“We pray that you bring this city together.”

“We pray for the Air Force Academy and Fort Carson.”

“We pray over this land that it would be dedicated to you.”

“Lord I pray for the high schools in our city, that your light may shine in those schools.”

We bank to the left and pass over the offices of The Independent, an alternative free weekly newspaper that has been critical of the evangelical community.

“We pray for The Independent and particularly publisher John Weiss. We pray for a partnership between such a sometimes hateful organization,” Briggs says.

A minute later, after a bit of quiet, he adds, “That we would be marked by our love and not by our judgment.”

Sanders heads west towards Garden of the Gods - a stunning orange rock formation popular with hikers. Pikes Peak is clearly visible to the south.

“Lord, when people see Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods, I pray we would see you.”

We head back toward downtown, and Briggs turns to me to ask if it would be OK if he prays for me. I give him the thumbs up.

“Lord, we pray for Jim and getting to meet him today. I pray that you give him protection, that you keep the hand of safety on him,” he said.

As the airport comes back into sight, the pastors get in as many prayers as possible before we land.

“I pray you would drive out the spirit of consumerism in our city.”

“Lord I pray for more Spanish speaking churches.”

“We pray for military families to be taken care of.”

The voice of an air traffic controller interrupts the flow of prayers and clears us to land.

The cockpit is quiet as we gently touch down.

Back on the ground, Madrid is smiling widely.

“It was great. A different perspective for sure. As I saw the city, so many things came to me,” he said.

“It just gives you a whole new perspective on people, I think. You see these different areas of the city that you never would have thought to even pray for before, so I think praying from a different view is huge. I think it’s awesome and we’re blessed to be able to do that sort of thing.”

The pastors head back to their church as Sanders shuts down the helicopter.

“I was given a gift. I’ve been so blessed. How many people have a helicopter?” Sanders said. “I do believe in the power of prayer, and I want to cover this whole community with it”

    To all the Christians here who believe in prayer, I have a question: If there really are important issues that need god's attention, why do you need to tell him to do something about it? Shouldn't he already know?
    --------–
    Excellent question. Here are my words to another poster! Maybe this will help a little!

    God knows what we have need of,yet He wants us to ask. Asking re-enforces the idea of relationship with Him. The benefit of asking is ours and not God's! Asking proves to us that we can trust him. Yet there are conditions to answered prayers:
    1. Asking in Jesus name
    2. Faith
    3. In accordance to His will (I just added this one)

    We can talk about it if you have further questions. In short God knows, He invites us to ask Him and unload our issues on Him! That is the Love of God!

      Try and make me believe prayer doesn't work..Several years ago I lost the diamond out of my wedding ring. Not the whole ring, just the diamond. After several days of looking everywhere, including the softball field that I had been at to watch my daughter’s game, I cried and asked Jesus to please help. The next day I went to the softball field, parted the grass, looked down and saw something shinny. I picked it up and it was my diamond. Needle in a haystack? Worse. After that there was never a time that I didn’t believe.

      If any group behaves in foolishness and it is reported, it is not the media's fault! If the bahaviour is foolish, it is foolish whether it gets reported or not.

    SDM . . . What do you think happens after you die? If nothing happens then why are we here? Just to take up space? I would be curious to your answers.

      "What do you think happens after you die?"

      Although the real question is that we don't know, there is no indication that it's anything like what many religious believe. I suppose the same thing that happened for billions of years you weren't alive (unless you believe in reincarnation). Note, this is not agnosticism which deals with our ability to know something. I simply think that if you want to believe in a made up story for whatever reason that is fine, but you can;'t make hold it as the Truth when the honest answer should be "I don't know."

      "If nothing happens then why are we here? Just to take up space? I"

      Good questions. Maybe we'll know one day maybe we won't. Certainly the search for answers to these questions is fascinating wherever it may lead. If there is no why then create a why. I try to help others in more realistic ways, love my wife, love my son and make sure he grows up with all the good qualities. Survival of a specie is a fine purpose and helping others certainly ensures that.

      @Steve

      You asked: "What do you think happens after you die? If nothing happens then why are we here? Just to take up space? I would be curious to your answers."

      Nothing happens when we die. There is no evidence for a soul or an afterlife. NONE.

      When we experience brain death, we cease to exist. But, we leave our friends and loved ones, who will hold us in their memories. We live on through them.

      We are all here, because we were born. Some just take up space. Some love their fellow man and work to ensure all our citizens rights – gay rights and women's right to choose. Some, unfortunately, want to take away rights, because they believe in the words of Bronze Age men.

      Cheers!

    Why should it bug the non-believers when the believers pray. It is like you should not be irritated when someone else is having a conversation with their father. You don not have to be a christian to believe in this. It is the conversation with the supreme being.

      God does know. He is all knowing, all powerful. He is everywhere and knows everything. He is more powerful than you or I can ever imagine. But we pray because he wants us to. We have a relationships with God that brings him joy and praise. When come to him in prayer it shows him that we trust him and have put all our faith in him.

  11. Mark

    Here's what I'm not understanding: why the need to "fly over" these areas needing prayer? Will God hear/answer the prayer since you're over the affected area? I'm gathering that they feel God will answer the prayer differently than if they were on their knees in a church making the same prayer, and I think that goes against all religion tries so hard to prove.

    Based on the methods of these individuals we should not pray for those in other countries/areas, since we need to be in the direct vicinity for God to better answer or hear our prayer.

    I realized the pilot is offering his services, but that the preachers propagate it is what bothers me.

    The audacity to 'pray' for others is simply obnoxious, arrogant and self-righteous. This is just a stupid gimmick. If you believe in prayer, good for you – just keep your prayers to yourself. Why do you need others to believe in what you believe? Simple – because it reinforces your belief. People would rather suffer a lie in a group than to go find the truth themselves.

    To "prove" evolutiion and natural selection takes only minimum everyday observations and minimal brain power.
    Consider
    1)Offspring resemble thier parents, but are not identical to them. In other words traits are passed from parents to offspring (duh)-not only physical traits, but more nebulous traits such as intelligence and temperment.
    2) Offspring resemble thier siblings but each is slightly different-in other words there is genetic diversity
    3) All species produce more offspring than that required to replace thier parents, yet in a stable population, all other things being equal the overall population remains roughly the same. Therefore, only a small percentage of offspring survive and go on to reproduce.
    4) Different offsping will have different traits (see number 2) and some traits will make their survival more likely under a certain set of environmental conditions
    5) The offspring that survive more frequently to reproduce will pass the traits that made thier survival more likely onto THIER offspring (see number 1).
    6) Over long periods of time, the whole population will come to possess these traits that allowed survival more often.
    This isnt rocket science, it is common sense. And yes, we can see it happening. Intoduce an antibiotic against a certain bacteria, and guess what, in a few million generations (not long in bacterial time frames) the traits that allowed some bacteria to survive more often (ie resistance to the antibiotic for whatever reason) will be possessed by all of them. And you have antibiotic resistance. Natural selection has allowed the bacteria to evolve and adapt to a new environment (ie one with the antibiotic in it).
    I dont see what problem religions people have with this. Evolution is not magic, evil, or antireligious. Quite the opposite. It is an absolutely BRILLIANT mechanism to ensurethat life will survive environmental changes. It ensures life will go on. Whoever invented it was really really thinking. Unlike some of the religious people who deny it.

      OR from Genesis chapter 1:
      21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth , which the waters brought forth abundantly , after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
      22 And God blessed them, saying , BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY , and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
      23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
      24 And God said , Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
      25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

      I am a follower of Jesus Christ but I also believe that life does evolve over time. The argument that I stand on is that the human world, animal world, plant world, sea world or the universe just didn't come about from nothing. The big bank theory is just that a theory that has never been proven. If you look at a wrist watch you know by common knowledge that it had a designer and that someone put the pieces together to make it into a device that keeps time. You don't just throw pieces of metal in a sack and expect it to turn into a watch over time. Why is it that scientists are the biggest group of professionals that agree with a Divine Creator?

      You said: "Why is it that scientists are the biggest group of professionals that agree with a Divine Creator?"

      In 1998, a study by Larson and Witham appeared on the leading journal Nature ("Leading scientists still reject God"), showing that of the American scientists who had been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, only about 7 percent believe in a personal god. Religious believers form about 40 percent of the less eminent scientists in America.

      Your god is drowning in a sea of scientific discoveries.

      You said "Why is it that scientists are the biggest group of professionals that agree with a Divine Creator?"
      Prof. Greg Graffin's thesis paper, the full results of which are available for perusal at cornellevolutionproject.org, revealed that fewer than 5% of the scientists polled internationally identified as having any deistic/theistic leanings.

      Scientists, especially biologists, are NOT believers in Gods of any sort.
      Most see no conflict between science and religion, so long as religion is treated solely as a social adaptation!

We can see evolution happen in a petri dish but you believe a book that was written 1800 or so years ago, 200 years after Jesus died and was cobbled together by a bunch of priests. If you go back to your or my childhood and remember the telephone game you played in class. Teacher would tell you that "there are milk and cookies in the cafeteria today" and by the end of the phone line (3 minutes or so) there would be "a clown, chocolate milk, cookies, cake and a horse in the cafeteria all this week".

      You can't tell me that the stories in the bible haven't been embellished and that embellishment is what you religious folk call "faith". A bunch of made up stories that have a smidge of truth to them filled with magical stories.

    For those non-believers commenting on this article the question that begs to be asked is why do you care? My guess is that you feel guilty for not believing in something that is so obvious. This earth has a Creator and His name is God. The bigger reality is that you too will come before Him and explain your life that He has given you on this earth. What did you do with your life? Whether you believe in prayer or not, I am praying for you . . . that your heart will be softened and that your eyes will be unveiled to the truth of the living God.

      @KSO.....Actually we say 'He' because yes we know God is a he. The bible refers to God as him or he time and time again. I am so disrespected by your comment. Why is it that people who are not Christians can attack us and say such horrible things and not be looked down for it, when if we ever state anything at all that is from our beliefs (that isn't even mean or name calling) we are the ones referred to as horrible.

      thes33k3r . . . the evidence is obvious . . . when is the last time you created a tree . . . or set the earth on a perfect axis as not to burn itself to a crisp if it were one degree off of it's rotation . . . or made a human being.

      How about the fact that over 500 people saw Jesus Christ after He rose from the dead. In today's world it takes one eyewitness to send someone to jail so over 500 is a pretty substantiated number.

      You signed as a 'former Christian' . . . what made you turn away? If it was a person or persons, remember your relationship is with Jesus Christ for your salvation not the people as people will fail you ever time.

      I never get why people think that their beliefs are so "obvious" that everyone should follow them. What, because it's written in a book? Not good enough. Anyone can write a book and pretend it is real. But since I'm on the topic, I'm pretty sure Jesus told people to pray in private, not to show off.

      Steve – do not send prayers, send God's legal tender instead. It has green color and motto "In God We Trust". If so, I will epose myself to as much God as possible.

      How about I fart in your general direction? It would make more of a difference in my life since your prayers will never work.

      Jaded, my prayers worked. I believe. You can never say anything that would make me feel different. I have seen a miricle.

      I could care less if you're religious or not. What I hate about you is the way you try to shove your morals and religion down our collective throats. You think that Colorado Springs is a nice place?

      When I was there in '95 the town council passed a law that made killing a GLBT person a $50.00 fine with no jail time. You could still get put away for years if you killed a dog or a cat but killing a GLBT human was a slap on the wrist with a small fine. What a jole you religious freaks are, You Are So Unlike Your Christ It Is Pathetic!
