TULSA, OK -- Oral Roberts, Evangelist and founder of Oral Roberts Evangelistic Association and Oral Roberts University, has been hospitalized near his home in California, following a fall on Saturday, from which he is suffering broken bones. 

Roberts remains hospitalized for treatment of the broken bones and a slight case of pneumonia. He is listed in stable condition, according to a statement released Monday.

The Roberts family "appreciates all the prayers for Dr. Roberts, as they trust he will make a speedy and miraculous recovery," according to the statement.

Roberts, 91, has remained involved in the ministry he founded in 1947 as much as his health allows.
