Prayer Before Surgery
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.
