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.

PRAYERS THAT CHANGED HISTORY is about famous people who became famous because of a simple prayer. People like Christopher Columbus and Helen Keller achieved what they wanted to because they asked God to help them. I really liked this book and read it through in two days. It is very well-written and held my interest. I really like that they included the prayers and quotes in the exact words they said it in the book.

Other features  include a brief biography, something to think about, in his own words, its in the Bible, and How he changed history.

Highly recommended for everyone. Even my older brother is enthralled by this book. He says it is astounding.

5 stars. Available in ebook and paperback. 240 pages.

I obtained this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
