Why I Wrote Prayers That Changed History
I first got the idea for this book in 1999, and it’s been simmering ever since. As a homeschooling mom and a Christian, I kept coming across these great stories of prayer, and I loved them! They encouraged my own prayer life, and I wished there was a resource for my own kids. I believe in prayer with all of my heart. I believe prayer changes history. Sometimes the answered prayers are small. Sometimes they are huge.
The Bible is filled with amazing stories of what happens when people pray: the sun standing still, the walls of Jericho falling, the mouths of lions closing. We know those are answers to prayer because the Bible gives us an eternal perspective. We see these events from God’s perspective and sometimes we can get other glimpses of prayer-at-work through historical stories and figures. (That is my desire for this book!)
I wrote this book to:
- highlight a historical person and a moment of prayer;
- to teach children how to pray;
- and to discuss prayers through the very words of the people highlighted. (We do not have God’s point of view in these stories, but we have the view point of the people [or nation] who prayed, and in their eyes miracles did happen.)
As readers of faith, you and I believe in the value and the power of prayer. This is the lens through which we see historical events. This is how the people who prayed saw them. We view history in the way we see the Bible–as a platform for God to do is great work, starting first in the hearts of men and women and then through events and circumstances.
