Bible Verse for Before Surgery for A Child

Prayer for Peace for the Child

Merciful Lord, we thank you for the everlasting love you have for us.  We thank you for your promise never to leave us, forsake us, or leave us comfortless.  We know that the peace you give is not as the world gives, and we are asking you for an extraordinary measure of your peace as this child faces surgery.

Surround this child with your presence, your comfort, your love.  Let the peace of God be so real in this precious little life that it down out all worries, settles all anxieties, and chases away all fear.

May a sense of holy serenity go before this child leading up to surgery, go with this child into the operating room, and follow this child through to a full recovery.  It’s in the name of our Lord and comforter we ask for peace.


Prayer for Those That Love the Child

You, oh God, are a loving Father.  You love your children with a pure and perfect love that is greater than any love we could ever imagine.  And having created us in your image, you have given us a great capacity to love our children.

Almighty Father, would you please strengthen and guide this child’s parents, grandparents, guardians, or other caregivers as they prepare for this surgery?  To everyone that loves this precious child of yours, deliver a double portion of faith, peace, wisdom, provision, and comfort right now.

For any siblings, cousins, friends, classmates, or teammates that might not fully understand what is happening, please comfort and keep them close to your heart, Lord.  If they are fearful of the unknown, please ease their worries.

Let them experience your presence and feel the prayer cover of others that care for them.  Let them trust you to meet every need that arises during this time.

Thank you, Jesus.  We ask these things in your name.


Prayer for Child’s Recovery at Home

God of creation, God of heaven and earth, we come to you now to pray for all the details at home leading up to this child’s surgery, during the time of having medical treatment and recovering, and either back to a regular daily routine or on to an even better one.

We are often comforted by our patterns and routines and by the familiarity of our daily lives and activities.  But during times like this, when a child faces surgery and recovery, our sense of normalcy is disrupted.

We ask you, Father, to let things run as smoothly as possible at home.  Protect against outside and unexpected stressors, like plumbing problems or electrical outages, or storm damage.  God, while this family focuses on the surgery and recovery of their dear child, please prevent anything that would add to their worry or cause them anxiety.

For any other children in the home or family members impacted by this surgery and the needs of the young patient, please meet their needs too, ease their uncertainties, and help strengthen and equip them to maintain a comfortable routine and to feel the love and support of you, our loving God, and of their parents, grandparents, or guardians.  Let them realize they are loved and important, too, and are not being forgotten during this time.

We thank you for keeping the home life of this family home life as calm and comfortable as possible, in the mighty name of Jesus.


Prayer for the Medical Team

Dear God, our creator and great physician, we ask that you grant wisdom and understanding to the medical team caring for this child.  They have trained and prepared for this very moment, this exact procedure with this unique patient.

Bless the doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, therapists, and all other medical professionals involved in this surgery and this child’s care with hands that are steady and sure.  Bless them with hearts that are caring and compassionate, with minds that are clear and sharp.  Bless them with ideas and plans inspired by you and with execution that is precise and effective.

Guide their hearts, dear Father, and guide their hands.  Superintend every move they make and bless each of them with favor for the work they do.  In Jesus’ name, we pray for this team.
