Prayer for Before Surgery

Dear God,

As I prepare to undergo surgery, I come to You with a heart full of faith and trust in Your goodness and Your healing power. I ask that You would be with me during this time, and that You would give me the strength and courage I need to face whatever lies ahead.

Please surround me with Your love and Your peace, and help me to feel Your presence with me in the operating room. Please also be with the medical professionals who will be caring for me, and give them wisdom, skill, and compassion as they work.

I pray that the surgery would be successful and that my recovery would be swift and complete. Above all, I pray that Your will would be done in my life, and that Your name would be glorified through everything that happens.

Thank You for Your constant care and Your faithfulness. I trust in You and give You all the praise and honor.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
