Summary

From time immemorial, prayer has provided comfort in our darkest hours, stirred us to action beyond what we thought possible, and shown us the way through seemingly insurmountable challenges. In this engaging tour of world history, author and historian Jean-Pierre Isbouts takes us on an inspiring tour of 10 prayers that played pivotal roles in world events. The prayers range from the divine inspiration of Joan of Arc to Martin Luther's hymn "A Mighty Fortress", from George Washington's prayerful words to the newly formed American states to the horrors of Auschwitz, and from Constantine the Great's prayer before battle to Gandhi's deeply moving prayer of peace. Ten Prayers That Changed the World delves into the moments in history when faith and prayer intersected with the course of mankind.
