GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS
Have you ever heard of George Mueller? One day he looked down the streets of Bristol, England, & saw 100ís of homeless children. He was so moved with concern for them that he decided that something had to be done.
He had only two pence in his pocket. Thatís two cents. But he decided to start an orphanage. In 60 years, beginning with two pence, George Mueller took care of 10,000 orphans. He looked out and saw homeless kids. He could have said, "But, I donít have any money. But, there is no way to care for them, to meet their needs, to buy the food."
Instead, he looked at them and said, "Therefore, I will reach out and help them." And God blessed his efforts in a mighty way. He told amazing stories of answered prayers.
He kept a record of his prayers, and his prayer records filled more than 3,000 pages. His notes show that more than 30,000 prayers were answered.
One night there was no food in the orphanage to give to the children for breakfast. But at 3:00 in the morning a baker called him up and said, "I just canít sleep. Iím going down to the bakery to bake some bread. Would it be all right for me to bring some over to you this morning?"
One time a milk truck just happened to break down in front of the orphanage on a day when they had no milk. The truck driver came in and said, "This milk is all going to spoil. Would you like some of it?" And their need was met.
Time and time again, 30,000 times in 60 years, God answered George Muellerís prayers.
