"Rev. Billy Graham dedicated his life to preaching the Gospel, touching the lives of millions across the world".

Colorado Springs might not have become the evangelical mecca it is today without Graham's influence.

Famed evangelist pastor Billy Graham died at his home in North Carolina early Wednesday, February 21, his spokesperson confirmed to the Associated Press. In 1971, Graham appeared on the song "The Preacher Said Jesus Said" with Cash. He's praised for being nonpartisan about politics, at least later on in his life ― meeting with every president from Harry Truman to Barack Obama.

President Trump tweeted about the death of Graham, noting: "There was nobody like him!"

Netflix's hit series "The Crown", which tells the story of Queen Elizabeth II's journey as a monarch, briefly focused on the now-91-year-old's interaction with Graham in the sixth episode of the second season. His popularity increased in the 1950s with religious radio shows like the Hour of Decision, which broadcast regularly from 1950 to 2016, and the evangelical magazine Christianity Today, which is still in circulation.

I can't say what Heaven is doing right about now; but I know deep down my great-grandmother was third in line to meet Billy Graham, right behind Jesus and George Beverly Shea. In the video, Billy Graham said America was "in great need of a spiritual awakening".

Reverend Billy Graham, who died Wednesday at the age of 99, left a number of legacies.

"My one objective in life is to help people find a personal relationship with God, which, I believe, comes through knowing Christ", Graham would later say.

Organizers of the Greater Philadelphia Billy Graham Crusade remember well his visit in 1992.

"If I get on these other subjects, it divides the audience on an issue that is not the issue I'm promoting", he told the New York Times in 2005.

Despite his proximity to power, Graham was resolutely non-partisan, fearing that political favoritism would damage his ministry - a ministry that was never touched by the kind of scandal that destroyed those of televangelists like Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart.

"My friend Victoria Hearst, founder of Praise Him Ministries and granddaughter of legendary newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst has shared with me her grandfather's role in bringing Dr".
