Prayer For My Sister Having Surgery

Sharing is caring!

And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sin, he will be forgiven. James 5:15

It’s difficult when we have to place our lives at the mercy of the hands of surgeons. The uncertainty that fills our mind robs us of peace before going into surgery.

The “what if’s” flood our mind as we lay there just outside the operating room waiting.

Prayer For Sister Having Surgery 

Heavenly Father,

I come before you to thank you for my dear sister in Christ. Thank you for the blessing of her friendship.

Father, as she prepares to have surgery, I pray that you would bathe her heart and mind in abundant peace.

We know that you are the Almighty Healer (Exodus 15:26) and you are in complete control. May the consuming tranquility of your presence flood her anxiety.

Thank you, Father, for showing each of us how valuable we are to you and for loving us enough to hold us tightly in the palm of your hand.

Forgive us when we doubt your healing.

Now, as my sister goes into surgery, I pray Lord that you will give each person in the operating room wisdom and that you will guide the surgeon’s hands.

Please be present with her as she falls asleep and help her to feel you there beside her.

When she comes out of surgery, Lord, please surround her with your warm blanket of comfort so her pain would be eased.

Give her victory over the worry that follows surgery and give her rest. Help her to trust in your perfect timing and to be accepting of your will, not hers.

We trust in your will for my sister and know that our desires for healing may not be the same as yours.

Forgive us when we struggle to accept your will for our lives. You are the only one who knows what’s perfect for our life and for our health.

We give you all the glory and honor. We trust you Father and in your promises to help and heal us.

As my sister travels the road of uncertainty, please send the Holy Spirit to give her inspiration.

Father, I also pray for her family as they wait. Help them to feel your presence and assure each of them that my dear sister’s life is in your hands.

Please restore her health through the surgery and give her the strength to recover quickly. Help me to minister to her before and after.

Lord, I thank you for the life of my sister. You have watched over her life from the day she was born. You have sustained her all these years, and she has been a blessing to our family.

Today I ask that you be with her as she goes in for her surgical operation.

Prepare her heart and mind as she goes to the operating room and help her not to panic or harbor any fear in her heart and mind. Remind her you are the God who goes with her wherever she goes.

You have promised never to leave or forsake her (Deuteronomy 31:6).

Lord, you have blessed my sister’s life since birth.

Thank you for keeping her in good health all these years.

I know that you are not the one who sent this condition in her head for which she is going for surgery. You are the God who promised to heal her.

I ask that your healing power be upon my sister and I place the helmet of salvation upon her head (Ephesians 6:17).

Guard her mind and let her not worry about how the surgery will turn out. Give her thoughts of peace and fill her with calmness. Restore every malfunction in her brain and blood vessels so that her head will remain intact after the operation.

Guide the hands of the surgeon and help them operate with accuracy and precision. Help my sister to be strong and courageous knowing you have sent your angels to be by her side.

In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.

Prayer for a Sister Going in for Cancer Surgery

Lord, thank you for sustaining my sister despite the cancer that has attacked her body.

As she goes in for surgery to remove the cancerous tumor, calm her spirit and cast fear out of her heart and mind.

You have promised to take away this terrible disease from her body for she seeks your face each day (Exodus 15:26).

Stop the growth of the cancerous tumor in her body and prevent it from spreading to other parts of her body.

May your holy fire sweep through her body and burn all traces of cancer in it. Let others say of her that she had cancer and now she doesn’t, for the glory of God. I declare that cancer will not return to her body and she will forever marvel at your miraculous power.

Give her hope for a better future knowing you have good plans for her life.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Poem For A Sister Having Surgery

There are moments in life

when much trust is required,

moments such as these,

where the magnitude of my faith

is dependent on the dissipation of my fears.

With spiritual eyes opened wide,

I release myself from all doubt

as faith manifests and abounds.  


I decide to stand unshaken,

declaring that God is in control,

declaring that my life is protected,

in mind, body and soul.

I entrust my body to foreign hands,

believing that it is you working through them—

the great I AM.

Come and invade my mind with peace,

and flood my heart with comfort,

as I let go and let you take the lead.

I smile and rejoice,

bearing the expectation of an encounter,

with heavenly restoration

and God’s divine healing power.
