power of prayer

In 1992, John interviewed Elisabeth Elliot on the topic of suffering.  Her first husband, Jim Elliot, was among five missionaries who were killed in Ecuador in 1956 by members of the Auca tribe. 

Ms. Elliot discusses her story of tremendous faith after experiencing tragedy and gives her answer to the age-old question: how could God allow suffering?  In searching for meaning in times of trouble, instead of questioning God's motives or if He's paying attention, we should trust Him and believe that he is sovereign.   

Elizabeth Elliot passed away on June 15, 2015 at the age of 88.  The story of her life (including her incredible trip back to Ecuador to live among and minister to the people who killed her husband) and a repository of her writings can be found at elisabethelliot.org.
