Item description for Answers To Prayer (Moody Classics) by George Mueller & A. E. C. Brooks...
Overview The power of prayer was central to the ministry of George Mueller as he founded, built, and operated his orphan houses in 19th-century England. This narrative account of God's dealings with this pillar of prayer will challenge and inspire you.
When George Mueller could not get it out of his mind to open a house for orphans in late 1835, he purposed to do so "that God might be magnified by the fact that the orphans under my care are provided with all they need, only by "prayer" and "faith."" For over sixty years George Mueller wrote down the details of the Lord's provision. Thousands of orphans depended solely on Mueller, and Mueller depended solely on the Lord. Prayer is an urgent matter that always yields crucial results. Through his narrative account, Mueller reveals how powerful and spiritually rewarding prayer can be in your life.

More About George Mueller & A. E. C. Brooks
George Fredrick Mueller (1805 - 1898), a Christian evangelist and Director of orphanages in Bristol, England, cared for 10,024 orphans in his life. He was well-known for providing an education to the children under his care, to the point where he was accused of raising the poor above their natural station in life. The work of Mueller and his wife with orphans began in 1836 with the preparation of their own home at 6 Wilson Street, Bristol for the accommodation of thirty girls. Soon after, three more houses were furnished growing the total of children cared for to 130. In 1845, as growth continued, Mueller decided that a separate building designed to house 300 children was necessary, and in 1849, at Ashley Down, Bristol, that home opened. The architect commissioned to draw up the plans asked if he might do so gratuitiously. By 1870, more than 2,000 children were being accommodated in five homes. Through all this, Mueller never made requests for financial support, nor did he go into debt, even though the five homes cost over 100,000 to build. Many times, he received unsolicited food donations only hours before they were needed to feed the children, further strengthening his faith in God. Every morning after breakfast there was a time of Bible reading and prayer, and every child was given a Bible upon leaving the orphanage. The children were dressed well and educated - Mueller even employed a school inspector to maintain high standards. In fact, many claimed that nearby factories and mines were unable to obtain enough workers because of his efforts in securing apprenticeships, professional training, and domestic service positions for the children old enough to leave the orphanage. In 1871 an article in The Times stated that since 1836, 23,000 children had been educated in the schools and very many thousands had been educated in other schools at the expense of the orphanage. The article also states that since its origin, 64,000 Bibles, 85,000 Testaments and 29,000,000 religious books had been issued and distributed. Other expenses included the support of 150 missionaries."

Reviews - What do customers think about Answers To Prayer (Moody Classics)?
This book will encourage your Christian prayer life. Dec 17, 2006
This book is a spiritual autobiography of a man who ran multiple orphanages and a school by solely trusting in God to provide the support. George Mueller never asked any individual for money. This book will encourage the believer to place all of your cares and burdens on the Lord. The reader will be challenged to seek after God for who He is and not for what He gives. It will help take your prayer life to a new level. You can easily read it in two or three sittings.

Power of Prayer and Mr. Mueller's work with English Orphans Jan 15, 2001
I read this book years ago while I was just a teenager. Just today I turned 30. Since the time I was a young teenager I have had a burden to help troubled children. The book only fueled my desire to work with children. I am also a devout Christian and know the tremendous power that prayer can bring into one's life. It is 2:32am where I am at and although it has been over 15 years since I read this book, I woke up after several dreams tonight with George Mueller's life on my mind. I can't rest until I know even more about George Mueller's life. I need direction in the way that I am to serve. The book is that powerful. More importantly, the testimony of Mr. Mueller's faith and dedication have inspired me to commit my life to the service of God. I hope you are inspired as well.
Incredible testimony to the power of prayer! Feb 3, 1999
I'm about to begin reading George Mueller's Autobiography. Answers to prayer is an amazing testimony to the power of prayer in one man's life, and it shows how every believer can appropriate the promises of God for themselves.
A testimony to the power of God. Nov 12, 1998
George Mueller's life's work was to have G-d glorified, by living a life of total dependance on Him. One of Mr. Mueller's chief rules was never to tell people the needs of the orphanages, but only to ask G-d for help. This book is a collection of exerpts, a kind of journal, that describes the wonderful ways in which God did indeed answer Mr. Mueller's prayers by providing for thousands of orphans often on a meal to meal basis for over 40 years! The powerful ways that G-d provided for each need will touch every reader's heart. It will give encouragement to fellow Christians and challenge the skeptical. I have never read a more powerful account of Jesus' faithfulness to His children and would strongly reccomend this book to all people.
