Billy Graham's son asks for prayers for his father


ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WATE) - The son of evangelist Billy Graham posted a note online Tuesday asking for prayer for his father, saying Graham's health has declined since his 95th birthday celebration last month.

In the note, Franklin Graham says his father has had another bout with a respiratory infection which required hospitalization. Billy Graham has returned home with improved vital signs, but Franklin Graham says he is extremely weak.

"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," read part of Franklin Graham's statement.
