(CNN) – Evangelist Billy Graham is in "good spirits" and resting comfortably in an Asheville, North Carolina, hospital Thursday, a day after he was admitted for evaluation and treatment of his lungs, a spokesman said.
Graham spent time reading the Bible and praying with his daughter, Gigi, Wednesday night, Graham spokesman A. Larry Ross said on Twitter.
When Graham - who turned 93 on November 7 - was admitted to Mission Hospital, "he was alert, smiling and waving at hospital staff," according to a statement from the hospital.
"While no date has been set for discharge, Mr. Graham is looking forward to returning home to spend the upcoming Christmas holidays with his family," the statement said.
OMG, do you see whats transpiring in Syria? Despite a brutal government crackdown, the demonstrations continue
Faith healer. In a hospital. Why isn't this surprising?
Billy Graham isnt a faith healer. He is an evangelist.... a fraud though.
Let the moron die and die soon.
As a matter of fact, let all the religious die today. :) What a wonderful world that would be.
Your soul is as dead as the death you are wishing on Rev. Graham,a sincere man of God blessed with 93 years of dedication to God. I think you will never see that rare age as your rotten soul is already festering and dead, corrupting your mind with your body not far behind.
Where is that dead soul of mine? Show me your soul.
Laughable always. Get off the high horse on your ridiculous dogma of fear and ignorance.
The filth, rot and corruption of your dead soul spills out into your writing like the insides of a gutted pig.
Herbert, stop this. It's not Christian behavior.
He should pray for God to heal him...who needs medical treatment? And, if he comes out alive, he'll thank God, with little or no regard for the doctors who treated him.
We're all better people having read your post.
When you have to stand before god some day, i would love to be there to see you tell him to his face that billy graham is a false prophet haha. Your a sorry excuse for a christian and i hope that people dont actually listen to you because people like you are why christianity has so many problems today.
has he ever apologized for his anti-Semitic comments?
to bad the morons lungs aren't colapsed. it doesnt deserve to breath my air.
You have air? I don't see your name on any of it anywhere. How about that?
Air is invisible. It doesn't exist. Unlike God. Yes. That is sarcasm.
Why is he even in hospital? He should ask his supposedly all-powerful god to heal him instead, if he actually believes. LOL!
Jesus will heal him.
He's 93. His time is coming to an end. It's not a bad thing.
wow, some human being you are, everyone's time comes to an end, at least he has lived this long, I can't say the same about you
Yes, Kemuel. Unlike you, I am the kind of human being who likes to ask questions.
@soundbite yeah, I'm getting a sore throat :( And I think that's funny! You said I sound like a constipated co ckroach when co ckroaches can't talk! hahahaha
Here we have one of those frauds who is mentioned in the Bible where Jesus will say "I never knew you! Depart from me ye evildoers!"
He's going to burn in HELL!!!
May the Lord heal you and richly bless you. Have a blessed Christmas as we celebrate the birth of the "King of Kings"
Why is this "holy man" in the hospital? Won't the god he worshiped, and prayed to, all his life, take care of him? Why does he fear death? Isn't this the ultimate goal of believers, to die and go to heaven and be with their "Saviour"? Doesn't being in a hospital, and using the latest life extending medical technology, defy the will of god? I'm a little confused. Can a believer explain this?
Get back to us on all that when you reach 93 years of age please.
It's because people really know, way deep down, that it's all a lie and are terrified of the unknown while saying they know all about what happens after death.
May God continue to bless you Rev. Graham
Dear Rev. Graham, wishing you full recovery !!!
Thinking of you Rev. Graham and wishing you well!
why would they have to pray for him ? If their god has a plan, then this is it, and do they want the plan changed ? It something bad happens, (like a sin being committed), the THAT IS the plan. Or, is he too disorganized to make a good plan ? Or does the divine plan all go wrong ?
"in good spirits" i dunno, he looks a little possessed to me!
Priest – get the exorcist! Quickly!!!
Sorry, I was busy with some young new fresh and clean postulants to the holy faith. It took me all day to properly minister to each one. I have no idea where the exorcist is at. Did you look in the kitchen?
Dear Rev. Graham, you are in our thoughts and prayers!
u sound like a constipated co ckroach, r u in pain?
AVD, you are worse than the pope. Shut up.
