World-renowned contemporary Christian artist Amy Grant underwent heart surgery this week, according to the singer’s representative who asked her followers to pray.

“With all that is going on in our world that needs our collective prayer, please also join us in praying for Amy this week as she has heart surgery to correct her PAPVR condition,” reads a message from ‘Team Amy’ on her Facebook page Wednesday.

The surgery reportedly went well according to her publicist, Velvet Kelm. ABC News reported that Grant’s doctor declared that the surgery “couldn’t have gone better.”
