Book Introduction

THE readers of these memoirs of the life of the saintly character known as Praying Hyde ', one of God's choicest gifts to His Church in India, will naturally be interested to learn the reason for their publication in their present form.

These reasons are not far to seek, they are threefold ; firstly, that God may be magnified in these fresh testimonies to His faithfulness, as the Prayer answering God ; secondly, that His people may be edified thereby, and encouraged to enter into a fuller and more expectant Prayer-life ; and lastly, as a loving tribute and memorial to one who was greatly beloved in the land of his adoption, for whose people he lived and laboured on behalf of his Master, and for whom he literally laid down his life. Truly may it be said of him that He being dead yet speaketh ', for his Christ-like life is still revered by the many whose lives he touched in India, and especially in the Punjab, the scene of most of his labours, where his name is treasured not as a memory only, but much more as an influence.

About John Hyde

John Nelson Hyde (November 9, 1865-February 17, 1912) was an American missionary who preached in the Punjab.

Born in Illinois, the son of a Presbyterian minister. This minister prayed that God would raise up more missionaries. John Hyde passed college and became a member of the faculty. Strangly, he resigned and entered into McCormick Theological Seminary. His elder brother Edmund was also in the seminary. Edmund dreamt of being a preacher, so in pursuit of this dream he went to preach in Montana but suddenly died of a fever. John wondered if he would take his brother's place. In his senior year he asked a fellow student, Mr. Konkle, for his argument supporting missionary work. That night he decided to become a missionary at last.

He came to believe that God was calling him to India. He departed to India in 1892 to preach in the Punjab region. On the way, he 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 he was partially deaf, he struggled to learn the native languages. Also while in India, he continued to focus his study mostly on Scripture. His mission at first gained few converts and endured persecution. So he began to pray very intensely. From 1899 he began to spend entire nights in prayer to God. 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. His heart had moved from its normal position (in the left) to the right. He went home to America and died there, in February 1912. His last words were "Shout the victory of Jesus Christ!"

He came to be called "Praying Hyde" for his passionate prayers to reach lost souls.



When I got saved in February 1970, and was encouraged to pray, John Hyde was one of the first people that I was told about as an example of having a prayer life. Over the years since, I've often heard stories about John Hyde, of the way God answered his prayers, and have always been moved by these accounts. As to why I've always been told these things about John Hyde, I really don't know. I think that they did have some impact on me or relevance to me as I am one who has hungrily sought after God and the things of God.


I would like to really recommend this book, and if you can get a hold of his Biography, I think you will be really moved and blessed by it.
