Rev. Billy Graham's son has asked people to pray for his ailing 95-year-old father, who, he says, is now "extremely weak."

"Our family would appreciate your prayers for him that the Lord would strengthen him," Franklin Graham said on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website.

Doctor Reveals: Healing Powers of Prayer

Graham, who is a Christian evangelist and president of the association, revealed that his father had not been feeling well since celebrating his Nov. 7 birthday at a gala celebration last month in a hotel in Asheville, N.C.

"Since that night a few short weeks ago, he has had another bout with a respiratory infection and was hospitalized briefly before returning home to recuperate," wrote Franklin. "He is extremely weak but his vitals are good.

"We value your prayers — in fact, we depend on them. We find words of comfort and praise in the psalms. To all who have stood with us — some for sixty years — supporting us financially and undergirding through prayer, thank you for your faithful support."

On Monday Mark DeMoss, a Billy Graham Evangelistic Association spokesman, said that the crusading evangelical leader is not in any "imminent danger."

On the day of his birthday party attended by a string of luminaries including Donald Trump, Sarah Palin and Rupert Murdoch, the older Graham released a 30-minute video message online to America, called "My Hope America."
