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.

I pray. Mostly everyone prays, at least at one time or another. No prayer is too big or too small. God hears them all.
What I like about this book is as it walks us throughout history, we learn about certain famous people. These people were part of something huge that forever changed history.
The author shows us the prayer connection to the life-changing event. All based on facts and resources, that she lists in the back of the book for others to look up if they want to.
That's the coolest thing, if you ask me. Deep prayer and faith, as well as persistence, contributed to these drastic changes in history. How the author gets you to connect them together is what I find cool.
This book is geared for a younger audience, but adults will enjoy the tidbits of history too. No one is too young or too old to learn about the power of prayer.
