Evangelist Billy Graham remains weak, and there hasn’t been a change in his health for better or worse since his 95th birthday last month, but he is “not in any immediate danger,” according to a spokesman for Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
“People keep saying different things, some good and some not so good,” Citizen-Times quotes spokesman Mark DeMoss as saying. “But he’s about the same. I think everybody’s intentions are good. The family members want everybody to pray for Mr. Graham, and I understand that.”
The evangelist’s son and BGEA president, Franklin Graham, told The Christian Post last week his father is not doing real well. “His vitals are good. It’s not like he’s in danger right this second. But if he got a cold right now, it could be deadly. So I just ask the people to pray that he gets his strength back. I’ve never seen him this weak in all my life, so I know he’d appreciate your prayers.”
DeMoss says he knows everybody is concerned about Graham, “but we’re not getting any different reports from the medical staff.” He adds he is checking in in every day, “and there has not been a change for better or worse in the last number of weeks. He’s weak, he’s at home and his vital signs are good – his pulse, his heartbeat, his blood pressure. He’s not in any immediate danger.”
Franklin Graham’s son, evangelist Will Graham, also spoke about his grandfather’s health during a speaking engagement at a California church.
