To Olivet:Please read some of Dr. Graham's writings. You will find he is so much the common man. IMHO,there are some illustrations (life experiences)that are timeless, appropriate no matter what a person's age or perceived position in life. We would be hard-pressed to find a better model than Dr. Graham to follow: one of the very few well-known ministers who have not been in the news for some kind of scandle. Again, please read his writings.You'll be amazed at how timely they are.

Absolutely love it. Some things are timeless. No need to place Dr. Graham on a pedestal. He simple does what all Christians are instructed to do -- pray without ceasing.

Olivet raises a good point. Oddly enough there's a moving set of letters written 50 years before the Graham story that has shown the way for a growing number of people to bring constant prayer into ordinary lives. Check out Frank Laubach, Letters by a Modern Mystic
