Let the Little Children Come
A little girl in one of George Mueller’s orphanages told Mueller she wanted God to answer her prayers as He answered his. Mueller assured her God would answer her prayers, too, because the Scripture says, “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” (Mk. 11:24 KJV).
When he asked the little girl what she wanted to ask God for, she told Mueller she wanted knitting wool. He helped her pray, and then she went out to play.
A little while later she ran back. “I want to pray again,” she said, telling him she had forgotten to tell God what color she wanted. Mueller helped her pray again, this time for “wa-re-gated” wool. The next day a package arrived from her Sunday school teacher who had sent her an early birthday present. In the package was variegated wool.
