Evangelist Billy Graham is in the hospital with a respiratory congestion issue, Fox News reported.

Graham, who celebrated his 95th birthday on Nov. 7, was taken to Mission Hospital in Asheville, N.C., on Tuesday, WCNC-TV in Charlotte reported.

Graham has been hospitalized in the past over similar health concerns, Fox reported.“As was the case then, we expect he will be able to return home in a day or two,” Mark DeMoss said in a statement Wednesday.

For six decades, Graham led a worldwide crusade-based ministry that packed stadiums with believers and allowed him to counsel every U.S. president since Harry Truman. His most recent book, "The Reason for Hope: Salvation," was released in October.

In recent years, age-related conditions such as macular degeneration and hearing loss have kept Graham at his home in Montreat, N.C., about 20 miles east of Asheville.

Graham has also suffered from prostate cancer and was hospitalized in 2007 for nearly two weeks after experiencing intestinal bleeding. His wife, Ruth Bell Graham, died in June 2007.

Graham rarely appears in public now. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is run by Graham's son, Franklin.
