Ruth Bell Graham
Wife of Evangelist Billy Graham


Please keep Billy Graham and his family in prayer as they mourn the passing of his wife, Ruth Bell Graham.

Heavenly Father,

I beseech your comforting presence upon Billy Graham and his family as they mourn the passing of his beloved wife, Ruth. This is their hour of need Lord and you are the ultimate comforter, so I pray that through you they will know no pain. Grant them the strength that they need to confront the reality of Ruth’s passing with grace and courage. Strengthen Billy Graham. Strengthen his prayers, strengthen his faith, and strengthen his confidence in you. Illuminate the blessed moments that he spent with Ruth in this life so that those memories will warm his heart. Help him to remember the great blessing you gave him in Ruth. In due time, I pray that you will give the Graham family the oil of joy for mourning and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. Let it be well with the souls of all her family and friends and those the world over that were touched by her life. And let us rejoice—though it seem incomprehensible now—because we know she is going home to you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Matthew 25:21 (New International Version - NIV)

21"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'

-----

We should all hope that when our time comes to go home to the Father we can say we too lived a life worth living -- one of repentance, obedience, salvation, and service. It should be our hope that God will tell us - "Well done, my faithful servant, well done..." when we see Him on that day. I'm sure that's what He's already told Ruth.

God Bless.

Yes, I'm certain that Mrs. Graham heard the word's of Our Lord, "Well done, good and faithful servant....."
My heartfelt sympathy to Dr. Graham and the family, she'll be so missed by them all, she was the 'glue' of the family. "Happy are those who die in the Lord, for their good deeds go with them" Rev.
Please dear Lord, pour out your strength and comfort to the family in this time of need for them. Amen.

Mrs. Graham was certainly an excellent part of this universe.

May the Goddess welcome her to the Summerlands.

Blessed and eternal Father, we celebrate the life and accomplishments of Ruth Graham beloved spouse of rev. Billy Graham. While we will miss her presence among us, we hold ourselves comforted that she is with You, where there is no pain, no sorrow, or want.
We thank you Lord that you permitted her to remain among us for 87 wonderful years. Someday we will all meet face-to-face an then we all gladly discourse in Your Holy Kingdom!

I lost my Father physicaolly to lung cancer over 27 years ago, but I have never lost him spiritually. Today is Father's Day and I know he is in my heart stronger than ever. I can feel his precence because we will forever be entwined with our Lord and Saviour.
To the Graham family I offer my condoelences and pray that you will always feel Ruth's precence not only in your heart, but spiritually every day.
I want to thank Bill Graham for being with me in 1993 when I was at home on disability. With nothing to watch on TV, bored and very longely because I had no family/or friends to comfort me during my healing and therapy, I know God told me to turn the TV on to listen to Billy Graham crusade. I don't remember what his crusade was about that day in 1993, but I know he was able to touch my heart when I was experiencing much pain and doubt if my God loved me or even cared what I was going through.
God allowed Mr. Graham to speak to my heart that day in 1993 and I have been ever so grateful to Mr. Graham since.
God Bless All The Graham family in their time of sorrow and pain while they mourn the grief of their much loved one "Ruth".
