I’m asking my friends for prayers today.

I have chronic Atrial fibrillation (aka AFIB). It is an irregular heartbeat. It reduces your heart’s ability to pump blood through your body, which means you do not get enough oxygen.

I’ll be having a medical procedure known as cardioversion. My doctor will deliver an electrical shock through two paddles. One is placed on my chest and the other on my back. The shock lasts less than a second, and briefly stops my heart rhythm and then resets it.

They can’t get the AFIB under control by medication, hence the cardioversion. This is the third time. The previous two, it worked for a while and then then the AFIB returned.

Thanks for your prayers. They are much appreciated.
