Prayer For My Recovery Following Surgery

Heavenly Father I thank You for bringing me safely through this surgery and for the many doctors and nurses that were involved in my operation. Thank You Lord for being with me and with the family as I faced this time in hospital and thank You Lord that Your everlasting arms are ever underneath to uphold and support each one of us through these difficult seasons of life.

Father I ask that You would give me a speedy and safe recovery – help me to be patient, should my recovery not be as quick as I would like it to be but may it also be a time when I learn to rest in Your love. Oh, but Lord, I do thank You that You have promised that our times are in Your hands and I know that You overshadow every aspect of our lives. Lord I pray that during this time of convalescence that You would give me a peace that comes only from You – and keep me from fretting about my inability to do as much as when I am in full health and strength.

Lord You know that I am generally quite busy and often find that I arrive at the end of the day having had little quality time with You – but I pray, with all my heart, that this time of recovery would be a time when I draw closer to You than I have ever drawn before.. I ask this is the name of Jesus my Lord and Saviour, in Whose name I pray.

Amen
