This prayer was shared in celebration of Graham’s 99th birthday on Nov. 7, 2017. Rev. Billy Graham’s son, Franklin Graham, released a video featuring these wise words from his father. The following is a prayer that the world will experience a spiritual awakening, and dedicate their lives to God:
I’ve been praying that we might have a spiritual awakening. I think that becomes possible only as individuals surrender their lives afresh and anew to Christ.
First, we must do everything we can to follow in the footsteps of Jesus. Live a life in which we love one another, we help one another, and we live according to His word as Jesus lived.
The Holy Spirit is the one who helps us live that new lifestyle. It’s one of love, gentleness, and patience and all of these things that are the fruits of the Spirit.
You read his Word every day… the Bible. I know it’s very difficult but you need to start somewhere and I suggest you start with the Gospel of Luke in the New Testament and in the Old Testament start with the first verse — “In the Beginning, God.”
Go to your knees and pray until you and God have become intimate friends. I cannot describe to you the joy and the peace he gives as a result of the daily routine that you have.
