Former President Jimmy Carter reacts to Billy Graham's death

Billy Graham minister to presidents and millions worldwide dies at 99

And while Graham was proudly American, he preached humility and that people of all nations, churches and faiths are one. In many places local Catholic authorities welcomed him and formed pastoral follow-up programs to welcome lapsed Catholics who were prompted by the preacher to return to the church.

"I'm selfishly heartbroken, along with millions of people not only here in North Carolina but throughout the world, McCrory said during an interview on WBT Radio Wednesday".

Billy Graham, the evangelist who preached to presidents, had brought his roadshow finally to Yorkshire. He delivered the invocation at eight presidential inaugurations.

Following World War II, Graham preached throughout the United States and Europe and was thrust into worldwide fame during the Los Angeles Crusade in 1949, one of his earliest evangelism drives. He wrote 33 books, most recently 2015's "Where I Am: Heaven, Eternity, and Our Life Beyond". But the Bible offered a solution: "The good news of God's forgiveness and new life through Christ's death and resurrection".

President Dwight D. Eisenhower met Billy Graham numerous times throughout his presidency. Graham had a well-developed sense of humor and would joke about that near-miss occasionally.

"Why, I could make a quarter of a million dollars a year in this field or in Hollywood if I wanted to", Graham once said. "You just feel the presence of goodness around you, the presence of the Lord when you're around them", said Dr. This vision is represented through the nonprofit ministry's cause of Beautiful Orthodoxy. "There were many people that were crying and weeping, and asking for God to accept them", said David Stanton with Assembly of God Radiant Life in Savannah.

"What I appreciated most is that he never took partisan positions", Hinson said. Graham was in this effort are mixed.

"I finally gave in while pacing at midnight on the 18th hole", he said. After the election, Rev. His son, Franklin Graham, later took over his ministries. He later regretted not attending a demonstration led by Martin Luther King through Selma, Alabama in 1965.

For 50 years, the polls had Graham up among America's most admired figures.

President John F. Kennedy talks with evangelist Billy Graham at the annual "Presidential Prayer Breakfast" in a Washington hotel, February 9, 1961. Yes, he still "pastored" presidents on demand, but he became wary of partisan politics, avoiding political controversies and associating too closely with politicians.

"Once, when visiting the royal family at Sandringham in 1984, Ruth and I walked past a woman wearing an old raincoat, Wellingtons, and a scarf; she was bent over fixing some food for the dogs", Graham wrote. He asked a younger colleague, the Rev.

Wilton also served as Graham's personal pastor. In 1995 his son William Franklin Graham III, then 43, was designated the ministry's leader.

Graham was born in North Carolina on his family's dairy farm on November 7, 1918. He found his spiritual path at 16, charmed by the traveling minister and temperance movement leader Mordecai Ham.
