Prayer Brings Victory

Early one morning George  Muller came into the long dining room. The plates and cups or bowls were on the table. But there was nothing on the table but empty dishes. No food was in the larder, and no money to supply the need. The children were standing, waiting for breakfast.

“Children, you know we must be in time for school,” said Mr. Muller. Then lifting his hand he prayed, “Dear Father, we thank Thee for what Thou art going to give us to eat.” Just then a knock was heard. The baker stood there.

“Mr. Muller, I couldn’t sleep last night. Somehow I felt you didn’t have bread for breakfast, and the Lord wanted me to send you some. So I got up at 2 o’clock and baked some fresh bread, and have brought it.”

George thanked the baker and praised God for His care. “Children,” he said, “we not only have bread, but the rare treat of fresh bread.”

Almost immediately there came a second knock at the door. This time it was the milkman who announced that his milk cart had broken down outside the orphanage, and that he would like to give the children his cans of fresh milk, so that he could empty his wagon and repair it.

God leads a prayerful person in the path of victory. For the Lord will not cast off for ever: Lamentations 3:31. The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; Lamentations 3:25.

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I’m very glad to see such excellent information being shared freely out there.
