Pray for Surgery Blessings
During surgeries, God can work through the medical personnel to perform His wonders.
Because He is the only wise God, He can teach them what to do, and help them make a successful operation.
Our God trains the medical personnel to fight for the patient just as He trains a warrior:
Doctors can make mistakes because they are human.
They can be overwhelmed by situations beyond their abilities, but there is a God in heaven who can perfect all imperfections.
You can pray the following prayer for all the medical personnel that would be involved in the surgery operation for God to use them for the healing and speedy recovery of your loved one:
Father, thank you for all the medical personnel that will be involved in the surgery of my loved one.
Grant them peace of mind, strength, and let your presence be with them throughout the process in Jesus’ name.
Give the medical team wisdom and revelation and the right understanding. Let them know what to do, and perfect their knowledge in Jesus’ name.
The Lord will go before the medical team who will handle the surgery, make all crooked paths straight and perfect all imperfections in Jesus name.
Father, give the medical team a sound mind, and unusual wisdom before and during the operation so that they will not commit an error or cause any harm to the body of my loved one.
I commit all the instruments, equipment, and machines that will be used for the operation into God’s hands.
Let them function well and work together to favor and effect the healing and full recovery of my loved one in Jesus’ name.
Father, anoint the medical team with all their equipment. Let your hand be upon them, and guide them in what they would do.
Father let every secret thing about the illness of my loved one be revealed to the medical team, together with the required solution. Let them lack nothing that they need to know and do about the operation.
Let the power of God descend into the surgery room.
Let the whole environment be covered with the glory of God, and let the angels of God assist the medical team to perfect their work.
How Do You Say a Protection Prayer?
Father God, thank you for your faithfulness and loving-kindness. Thank you for keeping your angels in charge over me and my loved ones both day and night.
You cover me with your feathers and you anoint my head with oil. You prepare a banquet for me in front of those who would do me harm.
I am vindicated before them and they cannot harm me. I am constantly grateful to you. You rejoice over me with singing! And I ask the same for my beloved in surgery.
You are mighty to save!
You destroy the oppressors and restore the fortunes of the downtrodden, and you have lifted up my head and brought me out of the depths.
You O Lord are faithful and you guard me against the evil one. No weapon that is formed against me will prosper.
I know that you will not leave me or forsake me, so I remain strong, courageous, and confident.
No tongue that rises against me will succeed. Every tongue that says evil things about me will be silenced.
And no bad report will discourage me.
Prayer is very important during any medical operation. Because even with the best medical team, we know our ultimate healing comes from the God who made us all -whether we are surgeon or patient.
When we pray, God can guide the whole operation with the personnel that will carry it out, so that it will be successful.
God had promised us that He will not afflict us with any of the diseases of the Egyptians because He is the Lord that healed us.
That promise gives assurance that if by any chance we have medical issues, the Lord is available to deliver us and restore our health.
He is Jehovah Rapha the Lord our healer.
