George kept a two-page journal of daily petitions and specific answers.He
suggested that anyone who desired specific answers ought to also keep track
of the date and time of God's answers.
George believed that nothing was too small to pray about. "When
I lose such a thing as a key, I ask the Lord to direct me to it, and I look
for an answer to my prayer."
He also thought that laying up stores or hoarding money was inconsistent
with a life of faith. He believed God would send him to his savings
before answering his prayer. He also expected the Lord to supply what he
required at the present, so there was no reason to go into debt.
Never get so busy that you do not pray. He told his brothers that
four hours of work after an hour of prayer would accomplish more than
five hours of work without prayer.
Don't forget to pray for more "ophans". God furnished the
orphanage but sent no children. George prayed,"I have prayed about
everything connected with this work - for money, for a house, for helpers,
about the various articles of furniture, etc., but I have never asked the
Lord to send me orphans."
George created a "memory" by scratching that window pane. We too
should create a reminder thats helps us recall God's faithfulness when we
decide to trust Him or give up!
