Short Prayer for Surgery to Go Well

Before Surgery Prayer

Let’s speak about the topic which is about something that every Christian has had to deal with at one time or another, and that is the prayer for surgery to go well. Some Christians don’t believe it, but God can use the surgery of man to heal.

First, before we can pray for medical or surgical healing we must realize it is not the surgeon we have to pray for. We should pray that God would work through the surgeon. We must pray that God, by His Spirit would over shadow the Doctor and take control of his mind and hands.

Bible Verses about Healing

Jesus tells us in Mark 9:17-19 “A man in the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not.”  “You unbelieving generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.”

Just like the father in the above scripture, we must bring the subject before Jesus, in faith believing that He is able to do anything but fail. As we say prayer for the surgery to go well we need to learn to put the entire situation in Gods hands, trusting that He knows what is best for us and for the person having the surgery.

Verse 20 states: “So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth.”

Sometimes we go before God with the petition for the person and as we see here, the situation appears to get worse. It is during these times that our faith is being tested. This is not the time to give up, it’s the time to look up onto the hills from whence come your help.

In verses 22-27 we see an example of this, “It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.” “‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”  When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the impure spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.”  The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He’s dead.” But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.”

Just like the young man’s father in the above scripture, when we say prayer for surgery to go well and we find our faith beginning to fade, that is when we need to humble ourselves and ask God to help our unbelief just as He did for the father of the young man in verses 25-27.
