Glenn A. Coon and his wife Ethel authored many books sharing the ABC of prayer—Ask, Believe, Claim—and his studies on Christian growth. His ministry spanned more than 60 years. In 1956 he left denominational work after a bout with cancer, and he and Ethel began the ABCs of Prayer crusades. “The secret of winning people to Christ,” he said, “was to love them.” Glenn A. Coon influenced a denomination and awakened it to the importance of simple prayer. He led thousands to Christ, and even led church leaders back to their first love. He died in the fall of 1996 at age 93.
