Dean & Diane Fry, 7-12


You who make mention of the LORD, do not keep silent, and give Him no rest till He establishes and till
 He makes Jerusalem a  praise in the earth - (Isaiah 62:6-7)

John (“Praying”) Hyde sailed to India in 1892 to evangelize Punjab. After struggling for several years, Hyde rededicated himself to working through prayer. He believed Isaiah 62 commands us to remind God of His promises and “give Him no rest” till He answers.
In early 1908, Hyde prayed to win at least one soul to Christ per day.  By December 31, he had recorded 400 converts.  The following year, the Lord laid two souls per day on his heart, and his prayer was again answered.
 The next year he prayed for four souls daily with similar results.
Once, stopping at a cottage for water, Praying Hyde asked God for ten souls. He presented the Gospel, and all nine members of the family were saved. But what of number ten? A nephew who had been playing outside ran into the room and was promptly converted.
“Praying” became Hyde’s middle name. It should be ours as well, for the prayers of a righteous person are powerful and effective. (James 5:16, NIV).
