Wagner suffered from congestive heart failure in part of his heart. In June, he underwent two surgeries. The first was to drain his abdominal cavity of excess fluid. This second surgery is to repair the lungs and pour talcum powder into the lungs, which repairs the leaky lungs.
Wagner's friend, apostle Chuck Pierce, confirmed Wagner's death on his Facebook page Friday, calling Wagner "one of the greatest molders of modern church history."

Wagner is recognized as a leading authority in the fields of church growth and spiritual warfare. He is co-founder of World Prayer Center and is chancellor of the Wagner Institute in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Wagner holds graduate degrees in theology, missiology and religion from Fuller Theological Seminary, Princeton Theological Seminary and the University of Southern California.
Wagner served as a field missionary in Bolivia for 16 years and he taught on the faculty of the School of Intercultural Studies at Fuller Seminary for 30 years. Wagner ministers extensively nationally and internationally from his home base in Colorado. He has written 70 books, including Prayer Shield, Territorial Spirits, and Apostles and Prophets.

Cindy Jacobs of Generals International said this on Facebook: "This afternoon my mentor and Dad-in-the-Lord for 27 years, Dr. Peter Wagner stepped over to glory. Peter gave so many of us a great treasure and legacy. He stood with us, discipled us, loved and championed us. A great general has gone home. No doubt having a place in the Hall of Faith for his generation. Thank you, Lord, for such a life well-lived!"

Wagner is survived by his wife, Doris.

The former apostolic leader was admitted to the hospital on Sept. 23 for what his wife, Doris, termed as a ''weakened condition."
