America’s Pastor Turns 96

Psalm 16:11 You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

The man many call America’s Pastor turns 96 years old with a focus on heaven.

Rev. Billy Graham will be celebrating his birthday at home with family and close friends today while a brand new video from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association debuts named “Heaven.”

The video has a never-before-seen message from the powerful man of God filmed last year at his home.

“I know I’m going to heaven,” Graham says.  “I’m looking forward to it with great anticipation.”

Graham has been struggling with deteriorating eyesight and hearing but staff says every day he begins with prayer, devotions and Bible study time.

“Although his physical condition keeps him homebound, he remains interested in current events and the ongoing work of the ministry that he began more than 60 years ago,” says Franklin Graham, his eldest son and president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. “Opportunities like My Hope and the Heaven film are ways that we can help my father to continue the work that God called us to do. Please pray for my father, and for those who will watch this film—that they too may know the peace found in Jesus Christ.”
