Description

D. E. Hoste was one of the “Cambridge Seven” who went to China as missionaries in 1885. In 1900 he succeeded Hudson Taylor as the general director of the China Inland Mission, now known as OMF. He was chosen to be the leader of the Mission because he had served the people of China and his fellow missionaries in a spirit of love, humility, and self-discipline. He was also a man of deep prayerfulness. He believed, like Hudson Taylor before him, that “it is possible to move men, through God, by prayer alone.” “Patient, persevering prayer,” wrote Mr. Hoste, “plays a more vital and practical part in the development of the Mission’s work than most people have any idea of.”

great book

Reading of the humility of Hoste, and how he worked with others, had a profound impact on my life. As you read of his prayer life it becomes no mystery as to why there was such a deep Christ like humility. It was because Hoste was a man who walked with Christ in prayer and was indeed a "prince with God".

As missionary Daniel Smith said, “Another day D.E. Hoste invited me to pray with him… Mr. Hoste prayed -- and prayed for four and a half hours. Sometimes he would kneel, then stand, then walk, while he prayed. There were eight hundred missionaries in the Mission. He knew them all by name without looking at a book and all their needs, and the three hundred children of them. As for me, my knees were riveted to the floor. I couldn’t move. I was filled with awe and reverential fear. In this secret place of prayer. Mr. Hoste was at home with God. It was his chiefest pleasure…” - Pilgrim of the Heavenly Way, pg 44-45.
