ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Evangelist Billy Graham is in the hospital in Asheville with a respiratory congestion issue, his spokesman told the Associated Press.

The 95-year-old was taken to Mission Hospital on Tuesday for respiratory problems, according to the spokesman.

Graham, 95, has been hospitalized multiple times in the past over similar health concerns.

“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.

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.

    Dear GOD you answer many prayers every day, can you answer this man of ,your word, by helping live in body and flesh to his request of living to 100 and more if he feels up to the games of staying warm and healthy in the winters and cool and comfortable in the hot days. Thank you GOD and mr. Graham for helping keep the faith in all of us.

    Mr. Graham, you are in our prayers and thoughts. We sincerely thank you for all you have done for our Lord and as the gentleman before said, for helping keep the faith in all of us.
