Bits and Pieces of her life from Wikipedia:
In 1849, Tubman became ill again, and her value as a slave was diminished as a result. Edward Brodess tried to sell her, but could not find a buyer. Angry at his action and the unjust hold he kept on her relatives, Tubman began to pray for her owner, asking God to make him change his ways.
"I prayed all night long for my master," she said later, "till the first of March; and all the time he was bringing people to look at me, and trying to sell me." When it appeared as though a sale was being concluded, she switched tactics. "I changed my prayer," she said. "First of March I began to pray, 'Oh Lord, if you ain't never going to change that man's heart, kill him, Lord, and take him out of the way."
A week later, Brodess died, and Tubman expressed regret for her earlier sentiments.
Brodess's death increased the likelihood that Tubman would be sold and her family would be broken apart, as frequently happened in the settlement of an estate. His widow, Eliza, began working to sell the family's slaves. Tubman refused to wait for the Brodess family to decide her fate, despite her husband's efforts to dissuade her. "[T]here was one of two things I had a right to," she explained later, "liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other."

"Harriet Tubman was a small wisp of a woman, yet God used her to do a mighty work. Maybe, as you read these words, you are wondering how God could possibly use you. You feel defeated and want to quit. Don’t. Instead, keep reading.
"While the Civil War threatened to tear our country apart, there were key players behind the scenes that not only worked to preserve life but also defended liberty, hope, and the belief that there is another life worth living. Harriet was one of these people. Without a thought about her own safety, she led hundreds to safe houses along the Underground Railroad and became a legend as she crossed back and forth over lines of battle."
