    It was an amazing honor to come and pray at the beautiful Billy Graham Library and BGEA Headquarters! Every employee treated us as if they were gracious hosts welcoming us into their home. The Spirit’s presence is obvious from the moment you arrive, feels like you have pulled your prayer chair a little closer to the throne of God for a moment. Thank you for allowing us to come meet and pray with you – we were deeply blessed!

    It is amazing to know that he regrets not being able to pray and remember scriptures. How many of us are young and strong yet do not even read our bibles, leave alone pray.May god help our generation to emulate papa Billy.
