More About E. G. Carre
John Hyde (1865-1912) was an American missionary who believed God had called him to preach in the Punjab region of India. While traveling to fulfill that calling, Hyde read a letter from a friend who said he would ask God to fill John with the Holy Spirit. Angry at the suggestion that he did not already have the Spirit, he threw it away. However he then humbled himself and prayed to God for help. As Hyde was partially deaf, he struggled to learn the native languages. When his mission garnered persecution instead of converts at first, he began praying intensely. Beginning in 1899, he spent entire nights in prayer. In 1904 he began to attend a conference at Sialkot. He formed the Punjab Prayer Union, the members of which set aside half an hour a day to pray for spiritual revival. In 1908 he told the conference his dream that there would be one conversion a day, and a year later over 400 more converts had been made. He came to be called "Praying Hyde" for his passionate prayers to reach lost souls. Near the end of his life, it was discovered that he was very unwell. He went home to America and died there, in February 1912. His last words were "Shout the victory of Jesus Christ!"

Worth the read! Aug 6, 2006
This is written by 3 different writers (compiled by one person). The second and third recorded stories that changed my view on prayer. Very powerful. Hyde's passion for God in prayer far exceeds anything that I've ever experienced before. This helps paint a better vision for our prayer lives.
Life Chaging Book! Apr 5, 2000
I had the opportunity to read this book while doing an internship at my Church. We had to read a book every three months and then write a brief paper on how the book inspired us personally. The book started off a little slow but once you got into the book you could not help but to feel for John Hyde. He was such a man of prayer, and you could actually feel his passion and love for prayer and intercession. The book goes over his life and shows different aspects of his life in prayer. The book truly challenged me in my own individual prayer life! I couldn't help but grow by reading this book. I recommend it to anyone who truly has a heart to pray or anyone going into ministry. It changed my life, it can change yours!
