Prayer for a Person Undergoing Surgery
Heavenly Father Author of Life, Healer of Wounds, Source of Abundance, Unconditional Love and Mercy, please hold (here say the name of a person you're praying for), in the palm of your hand and look at her/his (specific part/s of the body, i.e.,heart, intestine, liver etc) more closely, examine it, heal it, strengthen the weak parts, reconnect the areas that are loose, mend it and make her/his (specific damaged area/s) new again. Please direct, guide and bless the hands, minds, eyes, and instruments of the team of professionals, the heart surgeon, the cardiologist, the anaesthesiologists, specialized nurses, medical attendants assigned to do the surgery today and every person that touches him/her. Invite them to focus their minds to the tasks at hand and make each one of them perform their assigned tasks O Lord perfectly and precisely attuned to your command as the Great Conductor, Divine Healer and Comforter.O Holy Spirit and Comforter breathe love and peace to the family and love ones, that they may continue to feel your warmth and love on this day of the surgery. Assure them that (name of the person pryed for) will be healed fast and soon as she/he will continue to serve you in the ministry you called her/him to do for the proclamation of Christ goodness, grace and mercy. We call on the intercession of our Blessed Virgin Mary, all the angels and saints in heaven, especially St. Monica today. We lift up our prayers in the Name of God the Father, God the Son, in union with God the Holy Spirit who lives forever and ever. Amen.
