The March issue of Life magazine grabbed the attention of Christians with its cover story: "The Power of Prayer." Here's what former Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs said when Life asked about his prayer life: "Each morning I ask myself: &ls;What can I take credit for in my life?' I really think about that. The answer is &ls;almost nothing.'"

He continues: "Even though I can take credit for almost nothing, I can do all things through Christ. That's where my power comes from."
