Franklin Graham Seeks Prayers as He Recovers from Heart Surgery

                         (Franklin Graham)

American evangelist, Franklin Graham, is seeking prayers as he recovers from a heart surgery at Minnesota’s Mayo Clinic. According to Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse, the preacher had developed a disease called constrictive pericarditis which includes inflammation and hardening of the pericardium, the sac around the heart. The hardening compresses the heart and prevents it from working properly. He had the surgery on Monday and it was successful.

Graham, who is the CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), took to his social media page on Tuesday to reveal his present health status and also seek prayers from his followers.

"Yesterday I underwent a specialized heart surgery at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. I had developed constrictive pericarditis, which is inflammation and hardening of the sac around the heart that compresses the heart and prevents it from working properly. The surgery involved removing the pericardium, and we thank God that it went well," Graham said. 

"The team here at Mayo Clinic does such an incredible job—I couldn't speak more highly of them. My doctors said I should expect a full recovery and will be able to return to my normal ministry schedule.

"I look forward to many opportunities around the world in 2022 to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and invite people to put their faith and trust in Him. I'm also looking forward to being able to ride my motorcycle by the time warm weather hits! I appreciate everyone's prayers," Graham added.

Franklin Graham is the son of late American renowned preacher, Billy Graham. Franklin follows the footstep of his father in preaching the gospel to the nations of the world. His followers have wished him a quick recovery as he prepares to return to preaching the gospel of Christ Jesus.
