“Dear Heavenly Father,
You know all that ___________________ needs. He/she is unhealthy and is going into surgery on: __________________.
As he/she is in such a vulnerable state, the parents that you gave ______________________are filled with worry. Lord, please give them those shoes of peace that passes all human understanding. Ground them in the knowledge that you are there with _____________________ before, during and after his surgery.
Guide the surgeon’s hand and give him/her a deep desire to do an excellent job. Let ______________ heal and recover in a miraculous way and take the fear out of his/her parents as you have not given us a spirit of fear.
Allow _________________’s whole family to embrace peace, power and a sound mind during the whole procedure. This child, ___________________ is in God’s hands and those are the best hands to be in. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
