Voddie Baucham Having Heart Surgery Today

Voddie Baucham is scheduled to have surgery this morning at 11:00am to repair his heart and “give it a chance to ‘remodel'” according to a post to his social media.

Describing his week as being filled with “ups and downs,” which included two cardiac arrest events, Baucham explains the procedure: “Tomorrow, the home takes the field and goes on offense.”

He further invokes and pleads for his wife, Bridget, for the peace of the Holy Spirit after watching and experience so many traumatic events these past few weeks. He writes:

The last week has been filled with ups and downs. However, everything has been moving forward towards a procedure that could not only repair my heart, but also give it a chance to ‘remodel.’

That procedure is scheduled for tomorrow at 11:00! To quote one of my doctors, “Tomorrow, the home takes the field and goes on offense.”

Please pray for the @mayoclinic team that will do the work. Please pray for my dear wife. She has had to watch me go through one traumatic event after another, including two cardiac events this week that set off alarms and brought the entire staff running into my room to intervene (crash cart and all!). Tomorrow, I will be asleep (under anesthesia), but Bridget will have to spend several hours waiting for news. Pray that the Lord will make his presence known to her and grant her peace.

Pray for our children, both here and back in Lusaka. Pray the Lord uses this to call them to himself and teach them to trust him. Pray the Lord grants healing and restoration. Pray that the Lord brings glory to his name through it all.

Meanwhile, his GoFundMe continues to build, nearing 1.4 million dollars, along with donations sent to his other ministry and funding channels.

While this is a blessing to see the support, all the money in the world won’t help if he doesn’t live to see it. Continue to keep this dear brother in prayer, for physical healing, and for his wife and kids.
