One day I met Doug Coe, the influential behind-the-scenes leader of The Fellowship, host of the annual National Prayer Breakfast. I had been a Christian for 20 years, was 43 years old, and was an emerging Christian leader. Coe astonished me when he said, "I've been praying for you, that you would have:

the vision of Paul,

the patience of Job,

the loving-kindness of Jonathan,

the faith of Abraham,

the boldness of Peter,

the temperance of Daniel,

the gentleness of Moses,

and the love of Jesus Christ."

I was so moved that I asked him to repeat it slowly enough so I could write down what he said—I'm looking at that piece of paper as I write.

The impression has been enduring. Today I pray for other men all the time.
