A Prayer Before Surgery

Heavenly Father,

I come before You today with a heart filled with gratitude and humility as I prepare for surgery. I trust in Your sovereignty over all things, knowing that nothing is impossible for You.

I humbly ask that You be with the surgeons and medical team, granting them skill, wisdom, and compassion as they perform the procedure. I pray for Your protection during the surgery, and that Your healing hand would rest upon me, restoring my body to full health.

I implore You to grant me and my loved ones strength, courage, and peace during this time. I trust in Your grace, relying on Your goodness and faithfulness, even in the midst of this difficult situation.

In Jesus’ name, I pray and give You all the glory and honor. Amen.
