We’ve been sharing answers to prayer from The Wonders of Prayer: A Record of Well Authenticated and Wonderful Answers by Daniel Whittle (author of the gospel song, Showers of Blessings).
A clergyman writes us these incidents:
“I knew a poor family whose son George, four or five years old, was accustomed to pray. They lived five or six miles from neighbors, and at times, were quite destitute. One day, as little George observed his mother weeping over their destitution, he said, “Why, mother, don’t cry any; we shall not starve; God will send us something to eat, I know He will. I’ve just been praying, and asked Him to.” The little fellow just as much believed God would send them food, as if he had asked a reliable neighbor and obtained his promise to supply their wants. In a day or two after this, some friends living at a distance and knowing they were poor, took them the welcome surprise of a wagon-load of substantial material for food and other comforts. The little boy grew up to be a Christian minister, and about a year ago, on inquiry, his uncle told me he had been at the head of an institution of learning in the South-west.”
Give us this day our daily bread
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
