Heavenly Father we thank and praise You that through the Lord Jesus Christ we are able to come before You and bring our prayers and praises before Your throne of grace. Thank You that You are a God Whose power is still mighty to save and heal, as it was in times of old – and thank You that You are still our God whose healing power can touch each of our infirmities.
Lord we bring before You our dear friend Who is having to face surgery and Lord although this is quite a daunting prospect, Father I pray that Your peace that passes all understanding would flood their hearts so that they may find true rest for their soul in You. Help them not to fret or worry at the prospect of the difficulty of the operation or be anxious about the outcome, but rather place everything into Your gracious hands, knowing that You cause everything to work together for good - to those that are the called.
Help them Lord not to be apprehensive about anything but rather to trust their lives and their futures into Your loving hands, knowing that every day of our life is scheduled by You and that nothing takes You by surprise – even though at times we find ourselves confused as to why certain things are happening in our lives and in the lives of those that we love.
May the doctors and nurses be given the wisdom and skill to understand this operation successfully and we will give You all the praise and all the glory for ever and ever,
