Prayers Requested for Rev. Billy Graham

Franklin Graham and Rev. Billy Graham
Billy Graham’s son, Rev. Franklin Graham, well known to conservatives as president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and of Samaritan's Purse, reports that since the November 7 party celebrating his 95th birthday, Billy Graham “has had another bout with a respiratory infection and was hospitalized briefly before returning home to recuperate. He is extremely weak but his vitals are good.  Our family would appreciate your prayers for him that the Lord would strengthen him. He has been so encouraged by the release of his most recent book “The Reason for My Hope—Salvation” that he immediately began work on another book about a subject that he feels that God has laid on his heart. Only the Lord knows what is in store as we move forward in service to Him.”

Franklin Graham’s statement, in the spirit of his father’s ministry, urged prayer for his father and the Graham family as the Psalmist taught us in Psalm 66.  “We value your prayers—in fact, we depend on them. We find words of comfort and praise in the psalms, “Oh, bless our God…and make the voice of His praise to be heard, who keeps our soul among the living, and does not allow our feet to be moved. Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will declare what He has done for my soul. Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer” (Psalm 66:8-9, 16, 20 NKJV)”

We urge you to join us in lifting up the Rev. Billy Graham and the Graham family in your prayers.
