Oklahoma City - Former U-S Congressman J-C Watts is a special guest tonight as the Reverend Billy Graham speaks to thousands of faithful followers.

Graham has been packing the Ford Center since Thursday night. Lines of people waiting to get into the free event have snaked around the downtown area for blocks, at one point stretching almost a mile.

Thursday night about 11-thousand people turned out to see the 84-evangelist.

Graham has Parkinson's disease and underwent brain surgery in 2001. This is Graham's fourth visit to Oklahoma City.
