When George Mueller began his work of caring for orphans, he prayed – and received millions of dollars in today’s currency in response to prayer – because he prayed for 3 things…
- For God’s to be Glorified by His provision for Mueller and the Orphans.
- For the orphans’ spiritual well being.
- For the orphans’ physical well being.
When addressing God for our needs or the needs of others, perhaps we get it wrong because we usually pray about items in the last category – people’s wellbeing and rarely about their spiritual well being or the glory of God. Usually glorifying God is an afterthought if anything.
Perhaps George Mueller yet has more to teach us about prayer!
