FCA Celebrates Life of Founder Don McClanen
The FCA family is celebrating the life of its founder, Don McClanen, who died February 16 at the age of 91. FCA created a special online tribute page and worked with many media who wished to honor Don and his years of service, both to FCA and other ministries. Said FCA CEO Les Steckel, "If there is ever a question about what God can do with a life totally surrendered, called and risking all to follow His vision, we can point to a young basketball coach from Oklahoma, who in 1954 saw the potential of athletes and coaches to share the gospel with the world. Sixty-two years later, that vision is alive and well through FCA, influencing lives for Christ across the globe-an amazing legacy. We praise God for the life of Don McClanen."

Prayer For Humility Of Heart
Prayer from Knowing-Jesus.com
Heavenly Father I confess that my natural tendency is towards pride, in its many guises and disguises. I have always wanted to show that I am self-assured and self-confident in front of other people, and yet I now begin to realize that I am in fact displaying pride.
in the form of selfishness and self-indulgence. Forgive me Lord, for I now realize that I have been relying on myself for all I need instead of trusting my life into YOUR hands.
Lord I see now that I have been feeding my old sin nature, instead of allowing my new life in Christ to grow - a wonderful new born-again nature which You gave me the moment I trusted You as Savior.
Lord I live in this mortal body and have a fallible mind but I desire, in Your strength to be clothed in humility and grace, which I now see only comes from You.. (and not as I thought.. from me trying to act humbly in front of other people!) Change me Lord and teach me to submit to Your working in my life.
Help me I pray, to clothe myself in humility and truth.. by allowing the Holy Spirit to work in me so deeply, that people will start to see Jesus in my life, and not the old prideful person I used to be. I ask this in Jesus' name,
