The Cross at Kerrville is a Holy place. The Power and Presence of God is there. Miracles happen there. You need to go there. When you see the 77'7" cross from interstate 10 you'll know you're there. When you park and come into the garden, the sculptures will amaze you, but the Scriptures engraved in the path stones to and... More

I have visited this prayer garden several times and am in awe of the presence of God here. I have placed prayer requests on the rocks in the garden and my prayers have been answered. The scriptures leading to the cross are leading to salvation and the ones leaving are powerful in living for Christ. This is a beautiful place... More

The Coming King prayer garden is awe-inspiring. I couldn't help feeling God's presence as I walked the pathway paved with Scripture, observed the view and the beautiful sculptures, and found a quiet spot for reflection and prayer. And then, there's the magnificent cross at the top of the hill! Be sure to read the story behind this amazing project, and... More

Amazing sculptures. Really enjoyed reading the scripture tiles, which are written in Spanish, German and English as I walked around The Empty Cross.

The giant cross on the hill is just the most impressive sculpture at this amazing place. There are many others and they all come together for a great place to contemplate the many aspects of prayer and religious beliefs. It is free and a great experience for the family.

I remember all the hype in the the newspaper as this "garden" was being built--holy, holy, holy. Then the Kerrville Daily Times published a plan of all the restaurants planned for the place--not so holy, holy, holy. To my mind, this is using religion for the personal gain (and adulation) of Max Greiner. The sculptures are devoid of artistic merit,... More
