Anne Graham Lotz Asks for Continued Prayer as Daughter Recovers From Heart Attacks


Evangelist and author Anne Graham Lotz—daughter of the late Rev. Billy Graham—revealed in a Facebook post that her daughter Rachel-Ruth Lotz Wright is heading to cardiac rehab after suffering two heart attacks last month.

Lotz said these treatments are "a critical first step towards recovery" and thanked fans for praying for her daughter and family during this difficult time.

"Thank you for continuing to pray for all of us in this faith-stretching journey," she wrote. "Please pray for Rachel-Ruth's restoration to full health and strength with no setbacks or complications."

As is typical of Lotz's posts, she concluded her Facebook message with a Bible verse and encouraged fans to "praise God" alongside her and her family. The Scripture, Psalm 28:7a (NIV), reads: "The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and He helps me."

As Faithwire previously reported, Wright faced an uncertain health battle in early January after being rushed to the hospital after suffering a heart attack. Lotz immediately took to Facebook to ask for prayer.

"Multiple times I have prayed Psalm 73:26 for people who were struggling with heart issues: My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever," Lotz wrote at the time. "I am now driving the stake of my faith down deep into this promise for my daughter, Rachel-Ruth. She was rushed to the hospital on Saturday night with a heart attack, followed by a catheterization. Sunday afternoon, she had a second heart attack, followed by another catheterization."

A few days later, the author and evangelist noted the family's prayers were answered and Wright would be released from the hospital. She was diagnosed at the time with spontaneous coronary artery dissection.
