ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) -
The Rev. Billy Graham will celebrate his 95th birthday this Thursday with a party in Asheville, N.C., and a national telecast of his pre-recorded evangelistic program "My Hope America."
    
His son, the Rev. Franklin Graham, says hundreds of thousands of Christians have been praying for friends, neighbors and relatives to join them in watching the broadcast and hear Billy Graham's invitation to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
    
In Asheville, meanwhile, 800 people are expected to attend the elder Graham's birthday party, including Christian singer Michael W. Smith, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, and real estate mogul Donald Trump.
    
Franklin Graham says his father will attend, but doesn't plan to speak and won't be able to shake everyone's hand.
Wednesday, Graham's daughter Ruth spoke with News Channel 11 about her father and his amazing life.
