George Muller

George Muller (1805-1898) is famous for establishing orphanages in
England and for joyfully depending on God for all his needs. How did he
kindle this joy and faith? In 1841 he made a life-changing discovery

“The joy which answers to prayer give, cannot be described; and the
impetus which they afford to the spiritual life is exceedingly great. The experience
of this happiness I desire for all my Christian readers. If you believe
indeed in the Lord Jesus for the salvation of your soul, if you walk uprightly
and do not regard iniquity in your heart, if you continue to wait patiently,
and believing upon God; then answers will surely be given to your
prayers. You may not be called upon to serve the Lord in the way the writer
does, and therefore may never have answers to prayer respecting such
things as are recorded here; but, in your various circumstances, your family,
your business, your profession, your church position, your labour for the
Lord, etc., you may have answers as distinct as any here recorded.”
- George Muller

What faith and a strong prayer life this man had. WOW, he encourage me.

I have studied George Mueller. What an amazing man of faith. Oh to be as he!!! The most amazing part is he never "spoke" to others about his needs but only to God in prayer and ALL his needs and those of the children he served were always met!!!!!

Without faith, prayers are not going to work. So it is his faith that he was able to be positive that all prayers are answered. With faith comes victory! Glory to God, the Author of faith. Thank you for sharing this godly man. Blessings.

Hey Ginger!
Thank you for praying for me and your sweet sentiments.
I too am a fan of George Mueller. He was a major force in England, helped so many orphans and was a great support to many people including Hudson Taylor in China.
We will never know until heaven how many lives he impacted.
Thanks for all you do!
Be blessed, Joyce
