This book is subtitled: 

From Christopher Columbus to Helen Keller, how God used 25 people to change the world


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.
The book also includes images of each historical figure.


We've reviewed many of Tricia's previous books, so I was thrilled to be able to review this new book too!

If you homeschool, you NEED this book! It allows parents (and teachers) to incorporate Christian faith lessons and morality, with historical context, and really help to bring historical figures to life. My daughters Christian school does this in their curriculum already, but it is a great book for me to add more facts to what she is learning at school. The book is easy to read, and kids can read it themselves, but I would suggest family discussion (discussion questions are included) and follow up, to make sure they understand about how faith carried each person through their difficulties and missions. The book really helps kids to see the historical figures as PEOPLE, who had fears, but trusted God to see them through, just as we need to learn to do as well. This is a really unique book, for both history buffs, and kids alike, and we can't recommend it enough!
