Franklin Graham Thanks Christians for their Prayers for His Recovery

Franklin Graham (Charisma News archives)
On Facebook Wednesday, from his hospital bed at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, Evangelist Franklin Graham sent out a special thank you to believers who have prayed for his recovery from specialized heart surgery. He underwent surgery to remove a pericardium around his heart, and doctors say he should expect a full recovery.

"I want to thank all of you who have prayed for me and shared such encouraging words while I am in the hospital," Graham said. "It means more than you know. I thank God for the good reports. My doctors say I'm doing well and recovering normally."

With Thanksgiving Day approaching in a couple of weeks (Nov. 25), Graham also sent out a message to reach the unsaved.

As we approach Thanksgiving, what are you thankful for this year? Graham asked. I am thankful for my salvation, that God loved me enough to send Jesus from Heaven to this earth to take my sins; that he died on a cross and shed his blood for my sins. He was buried and God raised Him to life. I was 22 years old when I asked Jesus Christ to come into my heart. I've never regretted that moment."

I hope you will share this message with those on your social media. Ad if you haven't put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ, I pray you will do that today. It's the most important decision any of us will ever make."
