"The work of George Müller in Bristol, England, was a miracle of the nineteenth century.  It will take the opening of the books at the great judgment day to disclose all he wrought through prayer.  

This godly man never asked anyone for money for running expenses at his orphanage where hundreds of fatherless and motherless children were cared for.  His practice was always to ask God for just what was needed, and the answers which came to him read just like a record of apostolic times.  

He prayed for everything and trusted implicitly to God to supply all his needs.  And it is a matter of record that never did he and the orphans ever lack for any good thing." 

-E. M. Bounds

George Müller

1805-1898

(also spelled Mueller, Muller)

English Evangelist and Philanthropist; a man of faith and prayer.  

Without ever asking anyone other than God, he received over $7,200,000 dollars (in 1800's money) through prayer alone.

Born in Prussia in 1805, by age 10 George was inventing plans to embezzle the government monies his father had charge of.  His school years were years of drunkenness and immorality.  At age sixteen he was jailed for failing to pay his bills.  

The University he attended had 900 Divinity students.  George said that there were only about nine who truly feared God.  He continued in sin until at age 20 he received Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour. ______________
