#59: Prayers That Changed History by Tricia Goyer

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.

REVIEW:
Cool stuff!
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.

  1. I know her name as a fiction author, but think this book does sound interesting. Especially the way she seems to tie in bits of history.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
