You are in control of this situation. My friend’s life is in Your 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.

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 ome 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

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 afterward, 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.
