A surprise find. Although listed as number one attraction in Kerrville its still a fabulous place to enjoy peace, find God present and marvel at the effort of a community of believers and what has been accomplished. A Must see.

Loved it. Great experience. Lovely sculptures and an awesome view. Pavestones with scriptures in 3 languages. Seemed serene and spirit filled. I have read and heard many negative comments. I choose to believe the operators are humbly following God. No reason for them to endure...More

This is a special place dedicated to God and being used for his service. The art is outstanding and the view is beautiful. Worth taking time along the way of your trip, or making a trip just to be there.

This prayer garden is inspiring, educational, and a significant addition to Kerrville. Although it can be used as a drive-through attraction, parking, walking and and experiencing the Bible verses, the personalized bricks, the statues, the magnificence of the cross and the prayer messages should not...More

Worth seeing and spending some peaceful time here. You can write a prayer on a blank prayer rock with one of their Sharpie pens (or bring your own) and place the rock in their prayer garden. My prayer was answered!

Hello, I was wondering of the sun ever shines through the cross? If so what time does that usually happen? are you allowed to take pictures there with a DSLR camera? is it open all of the time? can I bring a flash if I need one? can I bring photography equipment on the property? when does it open? what time are the church services? i don't want to interrupt any services.
