ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WVLT) - In a note posted on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website Tuesday, The son of Rev. Billy Graham is asking for prayer for his father.
Franklin Graham wrote since his father's 95th birthday celebration November 7, the longtime Christian leader has had "another respiratory infection and was hospitalized briefly before returning home. He is extremely weak but his vitals are good. Our family would appreciate your prayers for him that the Lord would strengthen him."
He goes onto to say "To all who have stood with us—some for sixty years—supporting us financially and undergirding through prayer, thank you for your faithful support. We are encouraged with how God has blessed the proclamation of the Gospel through My Hope. This evangelistic outreach will continue for the next five years as the Lord is using it so effectively in people’s hearts. We are thankful that He is touching hearts as tens of thousands have responded to the invitation to confess their sins and receive Christ as Savior."
