Müller-esque

He (George Müller) had prayed in millions of dollars (in today's currency) for the Orphans and never asked anyone directly for money. He never took a salary in the last 68 years of his ministry, but trusted God to put in people's hearts to send him what he needed. He never took out a loan or went into debt. And neither he nor the orphans were ever hungry.

But what does that look like today in the 21st century? We live in a global community connected by the internet. Just from our family blog, you can link to families from Africa, Germany, Scotland, Peru, NYC to California. And we (currently) live in Florida.

How does a global community know the everyday needs of a family not asking for things? Only by the prompting of The One providing for us.

So what ARE we asking for?

Prayer

Join us as we pray for the Lord to show HIS GLORY to the world (through our blogs) by how He provides for us.

You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many.

II Cor. 1:11 (ESV)

We crave your support in prayer more than anything else.


However, we know from experience, that the Spirit prompts us to action. And if the Spirit prompts you to give, we want to have things set up to make it easier for you to follow that prompting.

Toward that end, you will find a "Support" button on this blog. It is connected to a another page with a PayPal account.

Again, we are only requesting you pray for us as we step out in faith and trust in the Lord's provision.

If you want to make sure that you don't miss any of this adventure, subscribe to our blogs or become a "follower". We'd love to have you along for the ride!

Grace, Mercy, and Peace,
JR, Daisha, Gideon and Naomi

Mark (my stepdad) has always been a huge fan of George Muller's! Very neat that you are learning about who he was and how he lived and what he believed. Very inspiring, isn't he?! God can do amazing things when we ask in faith.
