Dunkirk. ( Ephesians 3 v 20 - 21 )
A writer asks this question about what role prayer played in the miracle of Dunkirk ?.we will touch on this,I have read a good deal on the 2nd world war ,and how powerful the German army was,Hitler had been preparing for that event.We see this when we consider how easily he conquered most of Europe ,so lets consider Dunkirk in 1940 the German forces had trapped the British ,and French armies,there was no way out.Yet the German forces failed to take advantage ,they held back, well Hitler felt that the British would come to the negotiating table like the French.What ever the reason he held his army back,so enabling 350,000 , troops to be rescued . Now coinciding with all this the then King ,George V1, called for a week of prayer, so up and down the country churches joined in prayer, I believed strongly that it resulted in what one could call the miracle of Dunkirk. Alfred Tennyson. ''More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.''
