Grandson of Billy Graham released from hospital after Covid battle

Jonathan Lotz, grandson of Billy Graham, has been released from the hospital after a severe COVID -19 infection. His mother, Anne Graham Lotz, posted the update on Facebook.

“Today, he was discharged from the hospital!” she wrote alongside a picture of herself hugging Jonathan. “God has heard and answered your prayers for my son!”

Included in her post was a reference to Philippians 1:3-6, in which the Apostle Paul wrote: “I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident in this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Last Wednesday, Graham Lotz revealed her 50-year-old son had been moved out of the ICU and into rehab. She thanked those who had been praying for her son for “carrying Jonathan on your knees.” She asked her Facebook followers to continue praying for Jonathan’s recovery.

“Please, please continue to pray for his swift recovery and restoration to full health with no setbacks or complications,” she wrote. “And that I can take good care of him. Blessing upon blessing to each of you who have helped carry him in prayer.”

Graham Lotz’s brother, the Rev. Franklin Graham, urged in March that fellow Christians to get vaccinated.

“I would hope that the pastors in the pulpit would tell people how they can be saved from God’s judgment,” he said at the time. “I think for a pastor to tell someone not to take the vaccine is problematic, because what would happen if that person got coronavirus and died? I think if there were vaccines available in the time of Christ, Jesus would have made reference to them and used them.”
