Franklin Graham Requests Prayer for His Father

By   •   December 10, 2013

BG birthday

My father turned 95 this past November 7, and I am pleased to say that my family was able to be with him as he celebrated another milestone in his long and productive life.   Joined by many colleagues and friends from around the nation and the world at this celebration, he spoke briefly of these friendships and did not fail to point people to the Lord Jesus Christ. This will forever be his legacy which is, as the Bible says, a testimony to the faithfulness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Since that night a few short weeks ago, he 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.

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.

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).

    Almighty God; surely we are thankful for You as Lord and Saviour. Thank you for the greatest healing property on earth or in heaven salvation through Jesus Christ. We are delivered from the sickness of sin. We have eternal lives that are safe. Our healing is by the stripes of Jesus and by the laying on of hands of the elders especially the nail scarred hands. Our healings bring divine health. Divine health brings wholeness. Thank you Jesus. (1 John 5:13-15). Amen.

    Our first date in 1968 was at the Billy Graham crusade in Pitt Stadium in Pittsburgh. We continue to pray for and admire him and his ministry. May God bless you all. Jeanne and Lee Adler

    Billy has brought so many people to Christ over the years. I’m sure God would say a job well-done. I ask that the Almighty Healer and Comforter put his hand on Mr. Graham, this God centered man and his family. That they continue to grow in faith, and that God would take care of him as his son.
    My grandmother always supported his ministry, and when she passed away many years ago; my family received a beautiful plaque and letter from Mr. Graham. His kindness and thoughtfulness never went unappreciated.
