Billy Graham has prayed with every president from Harry Truman to Barack Obama, and inspired millions to follow Christ. This week, he delivered his final sermon – a video message he presented Thursday at his 95th birthday party – in which he looks into an uncertain future for the nation.

"Our country's in great need of a spiritual awakening," he says in the video, titled "My Hope America." "There have been times that I've wept as I've gone from city to city, and I've seen how far people have wandered from God."
