When Müller Forgot to Pray
Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat? John 6:5
Because of his faithful work with orphans, George Müller is considered a hero in the faith. But his ministry nearly ended before it began because he forgot to pray about something. Müller had prayed for all aspects of his envisioned orphan house—land, building, supplies, provisions. “There was, however, one point I never had prayed about, namely that the Lord would send children; for I naturally took it for granted that there would be plenty of applications.” The work began without any children! Müller went back to his knees, and the next day the first application for the orphanage arrived.
God’s provisions come in response to our prayers. In John 6, Phillip asked Jesus how to feed the 5,000; and Jesus, of course, was waiting to be asked for He knew exactly what He was planning to do. He is not limited by our obstacles.
Müller said, “In leaning upon the living God alone, we are beyond disappointment, and beyond being forsaken…. How precious to know that surely no good thing shall be withheld from us whilst we walk uprightly!”
Your God will meet your needs. Trust Him today.
