INTRODUCTION.

What is meant by the prayer of faith? is a question which is beginning to arrest, in an unusual degree, the attention of Christians. What is the significance of the passages both in the New Testament and the Old which refer to it? What is the limit within which they may be safely received as a ground of practical reliance? Were these promises limited to prophetical or apostolical times; or have they been left as a legacy to all believers until the end shall come?

Somehow or other, these questions are seldom discussed either from the pulpit or the press. I do not remember to have heard any of them distinctly treated of in a sermon. I do not know of any work in which this subject is

Thank you for making this resource available in free form for download. I say resource, because it maps out for the courageous believer in Jesus Christ how to depend upon God for everything - small, great, physical and spiritual. The author maps it out by recording how it was actually lived in everyday life. It was written 160 years ago so you just need to adjust for inflation! It is so "modern" that Muller could be a pastor or missionary visiting your church this very week with his story and message being equally applicable to us. Be strong and courageous!

George Müller (Mueller) is known for running a number of orphanages in Bristol England in the 19th Century. This is an account not only of his dealings with the orphanages, but of life prior to the orphanages.

It is a fascinating look at the mind and motivations of a man who helped so many. As a teaser for anyone contemplating reading this book, George Müller states that his primary motivations for starting orphanages was not to help orphans.

I enjoyed this book immensely. I found it encouraging and convicting, and it has aged very well. I would recommend it specifically to Christians or someone who desires insight into the heart of George Müller.
