One prayer can change everything, says bestselling author Tricia Goyer in Prayers That Changed History.

Martin Luther. Sojourner Truth. Helen Keller. St. Patrick. We read their stories, and of other people like them, in history books and hear about the amazing things they did to change the world. But one part of the story is often left out: Each one of them wouldn’t have accomplished what they did without prayer.

In Prayers That Changed History, the stories of twenty-five notable people are presented along with how prayer changed their lives and changed history. Following each historical example is a biblical story that ties to that person’s life and actions, as well as ways you can use the power of prayer in your life as well. Because God isn’t done changing the world yet, and he would love to use you to make history.

Includes images of each historical figure.

Editorial Reviews

It might be hard to make the power of prayer accessible to young readers, but it's even harder to make it entertaining. Goyer succeeds on both fronts in her anthology of 24 Christian individuals (plus the British people of WWII) who, she contends, changed the course of history through prayer. Arranged chronologically, the profiles feature such famous figures as Sojourner Truth, Helen Keller, and Mother Teresa as well as such lesser-known but equally important figures as John Newton, who found God's mercy during a near-death experience aboard a ship and began to see the evils of the slave trade. Each profile begins with a short fictionalized narrative that describes a difficult situation and how prayer helped the individual overcome the adversity. Although thought-provoking, the author doesn't indicate that she is reimaging scenes from history. She follows with questions that connect the reader to the narrative, direct quotes, biblical connections on the same theme, and inspirational guided prayer topics. While geared for Christian readers, history buffs will also enjoy the unique angle.--- Angela Leeper
