Missionary Quotations: Praying John Hyde

“If we are willing to put ourselves into God’s hands, then God is willing to john hyde, missionary to Indiause us.  But there are two conditions: Obedience and purity.

Obedience in everything, even in the least, surrendering up our wills and taking the will of God.

And the next step is purity.  God wants pure vessels for His service, clean channels through which to pour forth His grace.  He wants purity in the very centre of the soul, and unless God can have a pure vessel, purified by the fire of the Spirit, He cannot use that vessel.

He is asking you now if you will let Him cleanse away part of your very life.  God must have a clean vessel He can use.”

A Call to Prayer – a Poem

It is the mark of a Christiangirl praying

The test of one’s inner strength

It is work

It is labour

Our wall of defense

 

It is the prevailing muscle

That moves the Almighty’s arm

It is a mighty weapon

To the enemy disarm

 

It is the place of communion

With a holy God above

The means of transforming

Us into His great love

 

It is sharing in His burdens

And being privy to His heart

It is being in Jesus’ presence

Kneeling before the holy Ark

 

Why then-

Is this the way we resist

More often than not?

Perhaps because the way

Of the flesh it is not

 

But now –

Put that flesh man down-

Tell him to submit!

Then fall upon your knees

Where the flesh

Can have no credit.

 

Yes, there is a price to pay

-the flesh-

For a hidden ministry.

You may not be a preacher

Nor a church celebrity,

 

But with Christ you will enter

The highest work of all.

It is the one of Prayer, where

Before God’s throne

You are called
