Prayer Before Surgery

My God, our loving Father, 

As I prepare for surgery, I take comfort You are “God with us.”

Your Word in Hebrews 13:5 assures me, You will never leave me nor forsake me.

Your Son Jesus reminds me in Matthew 28:20 “And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Your Presence will follow me as I am being wheeled to the operating table. 

You will watch over me throughout the surgery. You will stand by the side of the surgeon to guide his hands. You will direct his decisions. You will be with the doctors and nurses assisting in the operation. You will use the knowledge of their skills and training as means of Your healing grace. 

And so I entrust my being and this body, which is the temple of Your Holy Spirit into Your Fatherly care and goodness.

I believe You are always on the side of health and wholeness as Your Son Jesus had revealed in His earthly ministry by healing people of all kinds of sickness and diseases. 

I therefore will rest in Your loving embrace.

I will embrace the peace that only You can give (John 14:27).

I will soak my spirit with the knowledge of Your comforting promises.

For You are my keeper and You shall preserve my going out and my coming in (Psalm 121:5,8).

Let this surgery be a testimony of Your loving care, goodness and mercy.

I shall cast away every fear and worry for I believe You are our good Father who knows what good things to give to His children (Matthew 7:11).

With full and complete recovery I shall live to glorify You in every area of my life.

I pray this in the name of the greatest Healer, Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior. Amen.

    This is so beautifully written. I too, underwent an operation before the year’s end and family and friends prayed for me. I felt so carried by the love of God and these prayers. The op was successful and I’m recovering well. I feel so comforted and bless as I read your words – it is what I experienced. I hope you too, Pastor, are recovering well. – Your sister in Christ, Pru
