Prayers that Changed History

Twenty-five stories of historical figures who prayed to God and as a result, history was changed.

One prayer can change everything.

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 this book from bestselling author Tricia Goyer, the stories of twenty-five notable people are presented along with the major prayer that 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.

This book should be recommended to children who are aged 5-12. Tricia Goyer motivates young children to stand up for God and Christianity with a short story that draws readers in. After the story, it inspires readers to look deeply within and see if they see themselves in a situation like that. It also draws from the Bible as a reference. 

Books written by Tricia Goyer is highly recommended. I have the book: Prayers for my Future Husband and it follows a list about what I should be praying for. It was extremely helpful and I love all the books she has written so far. This book is no different. God uses her to reach all ages of audiences and should be known as a writer after God's own heart.
