This story is the first one I designed. It is about John Hyde also called “Praying Hyde” I am attaching my original trifold design alongside the one I updated right before 2020 ended. I am grateful for a year to remember what God has taught me and of writing and designing stories to inspire others.
I appreciate how God used this man’s prayers to make an impact and how he prioritized the word of God. It can be easy for me to get really focused on all the work I should be doing and forget about the importance of spending time with God and knowing Him. It is also important to remember that God is the powerful one who does the great works and the power to work and change people’s lives comes from Him.
- What do you normally pray about?
- When do you find time to pray?
- Where is it easiest for you to pray?
- What do you do during prayer? Do you close your eyes or fold your hands? Do you sometimes kneel down?
- Why is it important to pray?
- How do you pray?
- Who can you pray for?
The Lord’s Prayer is a guide from Jesus about how to pray. Here is a worksheet to help with designing prayers based on it.
This worksheet is based on my notes from a sermon by David Platt about the Lord’s prayer. It is a pretty cool sermon in which he talks about each section of the Lord’s prayer and then takes a little break for you to pray through that section. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcx8R0utw48
John Hyde’s story is taken from Ambassadors for Christ edited by John Woodbridge.
