November 25. I have been again much in prayer yesterday and today about the Orphan-House, and am more and more convinced that it is of God. May He in mercy guide me!

The three chief reasons for establishing an Orphan House are:

1. That God may be glorified, should He be pleased to furnish me with the means, in its being seen that it is not a vain thing to trust in him; and that thus the faith of his children may be strengthened.

2. The spiritual welfare of fatherless and motherless children.

3. Their temporal welfare.”

From A Narrative of Some of the Lord’s Dealings with George Müller, by George Müller

For discussion, what do you think that it would take for God to answer the prayer of George Muller, that he would be able to provide for the children.

For you, what do you believe that God wants you to do, and how do you think God answer your prayer?
