Breadcrumb: The sun stood still

As part of the conquest of the five Amorite kings' armies, Joshua asked God to make the sun and moon stand still until he could finish wiping out the enemy completely. (Josh. 10:13-14) And, in fact, this is exactly what happened. "There was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man," says the KJV. In fact, we may never know what actually happened on that day. In fact, it's hard to say which was more miraculous, that God stopped the sun and moon, or that he obeyed a mere mortal.
