During the early years of my Christian pilgrimage, I read, amongst several evangelical Christian literature a book titled ‘The wonders of prayer
‘. The book sought to curate accounts of remarkable answer to prayer. With contributions from renown saints like George Muller and Charlse H. Spurgeon (to name a few).
Amongst these was an account of a minister who for a season stood in acute need after his salary was for some reasons withheld. For which needy state he prayed with great fervency. And at one point committed his needy case to one periodic Missionary paper. And while he did not accuse the disciples themselves, he remarked that he was convinced the Lord would requite the omission as grievous fault from someone.
An old Christian lady located miles from the minister came across the account from the Missionary paper – and was taken hold of. She felt like she would be the very individual who would be accused of folly for the minister want. And accordingly desired that a certain $25 she had on her disposal be sent to the brother minister. The receipt of which was soon confirmed by a letter of profound gratitude from the minister.
We in like manner believe this resource type
can be a great means to many evangelical liberality ends – similar to the one catered for by the Missionary paper. Bringing together the needy and the alms giver.
