On December 4, 2016, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said that it would look for an alternate route for the Dakota Access Pipeline, previously scheduled to pass under Lake Oahe in North Dakota.

Amazingly, the announcement came at the midpoint of a prayer vigil intended to prompt the rerouting. In the vigil, local protesters were joined by tens of thousands who participated remotely from all parts of the globe. The mass event was organized by Unify, Uplift, and other groups, and was scheduled to last for six hours.

Did the vigil actually make a difference? Many would like to think so, but determining the tangible value of prayer is a work in progress. Most scientists remain skeptical. But the pipeline announcement wasn’t the only coincidence that day.
