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.

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
