The Power of Prayer
For the 1889 World's Fair in Paris, Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, who proposed a 984-foot tower, the tallest building in the world at that time, won the right to build his tower to the centerpiece of the Fair. Skeptics scoffed at his design, calling it useless and artless. Eiffel called her La Dame De Fer—the Iron Lady. Eiffel's name was on his tower, but Eiffel himself thanked seventy-two scientists, engineers, and mathematicians on whose shoulders he stood. Their names are inscribed on the tower. Great things can be accomplished when we are devoted to one another in unity.
