Prayer Before Surgery For Child

Encouraging Words For Parent Who’s Child Is Going Into Surgery

As parents, we do everything we can to protect our children.

However, when they become ill or require medical procedures or surgery, we feel helpless.

We are forced to let go of them as they go into the hands of surgeons when surgery is needed.

Do you find yourself placing your trust and hope in the surgeon, or giving it all to God?

1 Peter 5:7 Bible Verse

 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

In your weakest moment, God is there with you. 

It’s difficult to put on a brave face while you wait with your child before they are taken back to surgery.

They look to you for courage. You do all you can to muster up strength while keeping the environment around your child happy and free from stress.

But deep down inside, you feel as if you are about to crumble.

The moment comes when the surgical team takes your child back, and when they are out of sight, you let go of all of the bottled-up emotions.

It is in the very moment God is reaching out to take your hand.

He will not only be by your side as you wait, but he will also be in the operating room guiding the minds and hands of each person.

Philippians 4:19 Bible Verse

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.           Philippians 4:19

We come before you to ask for your hand of protection over our child and that your warm, soothing peace would cover him/her. Take her/his hand and firmly hold it making your presence felt. May she/he place her/his full trust in you, Lord. 

For we pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.

For I will restore health to youAnd heal you of your wounds,’ says the Lord,  Jeremiah 30:17

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the beautiful blessing of my child. I pray for your protection over my child’s body during and after the surgery. 

Being taken into an operating room can be frightening, so I ask Lord, that you give my child courage and that your presence would be felt right there next to him/her.

Please give the anesthesiologist and medical team wisdom, compassion, and steady minds to do their job well. Hold my child’s hand tightly while your peace floats warmly over them as he/she falls asleep.

Please give the surgeon clear, concise wisdom and reveal the things that they need to see to perform the surgery. I pray that your hands would be upon the surgeon’s hands, guiding them through every step.

Help our child to wake up peacefully from the anesthesia once in recovery. I pray for grace and mercy over any pain that may come during this time or afterward. 

I pray for patience, strength, and peace over my mind, heart, and body while we wait. We place our complete trust in you Father and know your perfect will shall be done.

You are the Almighty Healer, and we completely give our child, the surgery, and our worries to you at this moment. 

We pray these things in Jesus’ precious name, Amen.

I pray over my child and ask that you protect them during surgery and that everything would be successfully accomplished.

Give the surgeon the skilled hands and eyes to operate and I ask that you give guidance and wisdom over every person in the operating room.

Please give my child and us peace and help us as we place our trust in you completely.
