Answers to Prayer by George Muller (Read and Reflect with the Classics Series)

This is one of those books that needs to be in your home library! Answers to Prayer is a compilation of journal entries by George Muller that gives the reader a glimpse into the life he lived by walking in faith day by day. This book is part of the Read and Reflect series by B&H Publishing Group that combines great classic literature with Bible study suggestions and thought provoking questions.

Who was George Muller?
From the Back Cover: George Muller was an English Christian Evangelist in the nineteenth century. He devoted his life to directing the Ashley Down orphanage in Bristol, England. In his lifetime he cared for more than 10,000 orphans. This alone is a great feat of faith, but what makes him a pillar of prayer in Christian history is that he never once requested financial support for the orphanage, nor did he ever go into debt. He prayed for what was needed, and God provided--many times hours before funds or provisions were needed. His story and journals stand as the picture of God's faithfulness.

My Thoughts:
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.  George Muller left a legacy that was meant to encourage all of those in his present age and in years to come. And truly his story is one that encourages us still today. George Muller's first thought when facing anything in life was to bring it in prayer before the God he trusted with everything. This thinking was as natural to him as breathing air. I love his perspective on life. How he views everything as God's purpose and plan even down to the tiniest detail. What a testimony not only to the believing, but also to the world of what God can do when we have a different perspective on life, a heavenly perspective.
If you want to read a book that will encourage your faith, pick up this classic, Answers to Prayer. These stories will not only encourage you, but will also direct your gaze upward to the One whom they glorify.
