Rev. Billy Graham's health has been stable over the last few weeks, despite claims by family members that the 95-year-old's health is rapidly deteriorating, his spokesman says.

"People keep saying different things, some good and some not so good. But he's about the same. I think everybody's intentions are good. The family members want everybody to pray for Mr. Graham, and I understand that," Graham's spokesman, Mark DeMoss, told USA Today.

Speculation about the evangelist's health began earlier this month after his son, Franklin Graham, told a Charlotte, N.C. television station that his father's health had been declining since his birthday party on Nov. 7.

A week later, his grandson, Will Graham, made comments at a California church that his grandfather "is not doing well" and that "It's time [for him] to go home."

"I think everybody is concerned about Mr. Graham, but we're not getting any different reports from the medical staff," DeMoss said, according to USA Today.

"I'm checking in every day, and there has not been a change for better or worse in the last number of weeks. He's weak, he's at home and his vital signs are good — his pulse, his heartbeat, his blood pressure. He's not in any immediate danger."

He added, "I think we're holding steady."
