Prayer For Healing Before Surgery
Lord, your Word speaks promises of healing and restoration and I thank you for the miracles you still perform today. Today I claim those promises over my friend. I believe in the healing power of faith and prayer and I ask you to begin your mighty work in the life of my friend. Please reach down and surround my friend with supernatural peace and strength and give her the faith to believe that all things are possible for you. Protect her from Satan's lies and discouragement and let her miraculous healing begin. Amen.
Father, praise You for this life. As we prepare for surgery to the body You have given us, many things flow into our minds and out of our hearts as we lie in wait. Yet, You reassure us in Exodus 15:26: I am the Lord who heals you.
We have an end picture in our minds as to what healed looks like for us, and desperately look to You for assurance that our lives and our pain will be healed. You are above all, see all, know all, and are capable of healing all. When Jesus walked the earth, He healed by the touch of His hand and the sound of His voice. We pray to feel Your healing hand upon us, Lord, and hear Your voice of peace and tranquility boom over the loud pain that throbs through our minds and bodies.
Thank You for a life that is valuable to us and to those around us. We are worth enough to worry about, and thankful enough for the life we've been blessed with on this earth to covet our return to it and full restoration of it. With grateful hearts we come to You in praise for the gift of being able to trod this earth and experience Your love.
Forgive us, Father, for doubting our purpose on earth. We confess just how often we run from what You are calling us to do because we feel it is too hard. And now, as we await the outcome of surgery, we feel compelled to reach back and grab every opportunity that has ever passed us by to walk behind Your Son in pursuit of Your will for our lives. Please forgive our disobedience, and lack of respect for Your timing and Your plans. Help us to place our current and future ambitions on bringing You glory, and the love of Your Son to all who know us.
Father, we trust You with our lives. For You promise us: Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me. (Psalm 30:2) Bless the surgeons and medical staff that will operate on us. Be with them and equip them to be extensions of Your healing hand. Remain present with me, Lord, even when I fall asleep from the pain medication. Help me to feel Your presence, and remember that You are always with me. Never leaving. Always faithful. Loving me more than I'm capable of understanding.
And now for the hardest part: Truly trusting the outcome of my life in Your hands. For it's when our plans for healing don't look the same as Yours that we become frustrated, and faith threatens to pull out of our hearts. Doubt can seep in through the cracks in unexpected circumstances. In those moments, Lord Jesus, strengthen us to remember You. Your ways are not our ways, because only You can claim true love for us. Only You know what is perfect and just in the daily happenings of our lives. Our time here is so fleeting, but our belief in You, Jesus, sets us apart and ensures us life everlasting. Pain free and full of peace.
Help us to hold on to that belief. To hold onto You. As we travel this road of uncertainty, send Your Holy Spirit to inspire our heart's memory of Your sweet words of promise. Help us to recall and repeat the promises You have given us through Your Word. Be with our families and friends as they worry and wonder what the outcome will be. Inspire Your love in their hearts and assure them that my life is in Your hands.
Father, let all who know me witness my peace in this process, and know that it is from You. Thank You for life, God. Bless and heal me today through this surgery. Whether You bring me through these ailments to restore me upright on this earth, or take me through to You, I trust You today, and always. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Heavenly Father, author of life, thank You that I am able to undergo this life-saving operation. Thank You for the doctors, nurses, and surgeons who will serve as channels of Your healing for me today. Thank You for blessing them with intelligent minds that know exactly what to do, steady hands that can gently help repair my body, and compassionate hearts that always put their patients first. As this operation takes place, God, I ask that You oversee every moment of it. Help the surgeons to do no harm to my body. Enable me to rest in Your peace, God, as I await a full recovery soon. I am forever grateful to You for giving me another chance at life. I commit all aspects of this surgery to You, Lord, for you are in control of everything. In Your Name, I pray, Amen.
Dearest Lord, I entrust my life to You today as I go on the operating table. May Your hand be upon the surgeons and doctors who will do the operation. Allow them to act as extensions of Your healing hands. Enable them to be the instruments that will help me recover my strength. As I fall asleep from the anesthetic, I ask You to be with me always. Allow me to feel Your presence. Let Your peace surround me even as I am unconscious. I trust in Your promise, God, that when I call to you for help, you will heal me. All these things I ask in Your Name, Amen.
Heavenly Father, I take refuge in Your unfailing promises as I undergo this surgery. Protect my physical body as the surgeon operates on me. Let Your Spirit be with the surgeon, Lord, that he may help me to be restored to good health once again. I trust that You are my healer, God, and it is only through You that my health will be restored.
Father, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, allow me to be not afraid. Be my comfort. Let Your goodness and mercy follow me, even through this surgery. Please be with me at this time when I am most vulnerable. Grant me peace of mind that I may not worry. In Your Name, I ask all these, Amen.
Dearest God, I am deeply concerned now about my loved one who is on the operating table. As the surgeon performs the procedures on her, I cannot help but be worried. There are a lot of questions in my mind that come up about how she is doing. I know, God, that this surgery is out of my hands now, which is why I'm coming to You today.
I commit the life of my loved one to You, Father. You are the author of life, and You are the ultimate healer. Take good care of her, God, as she is going under the surgeon's knife. Take away whatever it is that is negatively affecting her body.
Be with the surgeon, too, Lord, as he performs this delicate operation. Enable him to do no harm to my loved one's body. Direct his hands during the entire course of the surgery. Allow him to locate the site of disease and remove it. As he cuts the flesh open and patches it back up afterwards, let his hands be gentle as a feather. Let no damage be done on my loved one's body.
I also ask, God, that through this surgery, You will show Yourself in a very personal way to my loved one. Let her experience Your love firsthand. Reveal to her Your purpose in allowing this circumstance in her life. May she know You more deeply through this situation, God. Let her experience Your peace that surpasses all understanding. I trust that You are watching over her through the entire operation. She needs You now more than ever, so I thank You for being there for her at this time. Hold her in Your loving arms, God. Be her comfort while she is on the operating table.
Continue to be with her, God, as she recovers after the surgery. Let her experience Your love even further through the blessing of having another chance at life. Enable her, Lord, to live her life for Your glory as well as to be a channel of blessing to the ones she loves. All these I pray in Your Name, Amen.
Dearest Lord, my friend is about to undergo a very delicate surgery. Just thinking about the operation makes me very worried for his well-being. But Lord, I trust that You are sovereign. You are in control of this situation. My friend's life is in Your hands. I ask that You surround me with Your peace that I may not worry and that You also touch my friend with Your powerful healing hands.
Bless the surgeons as well, God. Give them steady, dexterous hands as they operate on my friend. Keep their minds sharp all throughout the operation, so that every move they make will serve to help my friend's ailing body.
At the end of it all, thank You, Lord, for the healing you will impart to my friend. Thank You for giving him an additional opportunity to live his life. Thank You for the extra time I will be able to spend with him and thank You that he will be able to spend time with me again soon. All these I ask in Your Name, Amen.
Most loving Heavenly Father, I commit my physical body to You today as I undergo a delicate surgery. Guide the hands of the surgeons as well. Thank You, Father, for giving them the skills and talents that can heal the sick and bring hope to the dying. Thank You for giving them sharp minds and calm hearts so that they can perform the operation without causing harm to my body.
Father God, as I fall into unconsciousness under the anesthetic, and as parts of my body are put under the surgeons' knives, continue to touch me with Your healing hand. I trust, God, that You are my Healer. You alone have the power to take away this affliction I have. I believe that there is no disease more powerful than Your Name, God. In Jesus' name, I rebuke this illness inside my body. Begone, in the name of Jesus.
After the surgery is done, thank You, God, for You will grant me restored health. Thank You for another chance at life that I may continue to serve You and give glory to Your Name. As I go on with my life after surgery, I ask You to always enable me to be salt and light to those around me. Help me to live my life in accordance with Your will.
Once again, I commit my body to You, as well as my soul. Be with me in this operation, and be with the doctors especially. In Your Name, I ask all these things, Amen.
