A Prayer for Before Surgery

Heavenly Father,

As I face this surgery, I come to You with a humble and trusting heart. I know that You are the great physician, and I pray that You would be with me every step of the way. Please give me strength, courage, and peace as I go through this experience.

I pray that You would watch over the medical team and guide their hands as they work. Please protect me from any harm and bring me through this surgery safely. May Your healing power be at work in my body, and may Your presence be a source of comfort and peace to me.

I also lift up my family and loved ones who will be waiting and worrying. Please give them peace and hope, and let them feel Your presence with them. May Your love and Your grace be a source of strength and encouragement to all of us during this time.

I pray all of these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
