George Mueller, On Persistent Praying

Image result for george mueller“One or the other might suppose that all my prayers have been thus promptly answered. No, not all of them. Sometimes I have had to wait weeks, months or years, sometimes many years…During the first six weeks of the year 1866 I heard of the conversion of six persons for whom I had been praying for a long time. For one I had been praying between two and three years. For another between three and four years; for the fifth above fifteen years, and for sixth above twenty years. In one instance my faith has been tried even more than thin. In November 1844, I began to pray for the conversion of five individuals. I prayed every day without one single intermission whether in sickness or in health, on the land or on the sea, and whatever the pressure of my engagement may be…two remain unconverted…But I hope in God, I pray on, and I look yet for the answer… Therefore beloved brethren and sisters, go on waiting upon God, go on praying, only be sure to ask for things which are according to the mind of God.” (George Mueller)
