In Prayers, Resources

Hands on table | What to pray while your child is in surgery | helloHOPE Resource

One of our very best friends is at the hospital this morning to prepare for surgery to remove a brain tumor. He is a huge part of our lives, has been a faithful friend to Andrew and I for 11 years, and is an adopted uncle to our girls. He flew to another city for this surgery, and we have been feeling so far away and wishing we could be with him and his family to offer tangible support. As we fight the restlessness that comes with waiting for a major event like surgery, we are holding onto the promises of God.

Before the surgery, God has already showed up. We create our editorial calendar over a month in advance, and we scheduled our Resources topic for this week to be a prayer guide for what to pray while your child is in surgery—three weeks before we knew about our friend’s surgery. I am reminded of Proverbs 16:9, which says, “A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord determines his steps.” God knew that we would need these verses to claim for our friend today even before we did. Knowing that these verses come right from the heart of God, we offer these to you to meditate on or pray as your child or loved one is back in surgery.

 


Prayers for God’s Presence


I will be the same until your old age, and I will bear you up when you turn gray. I have made you, and I will carry you; I will bear and save you.
Isaiah 46:4

Can a woman forget her nursing child, or lack compassion for the child in her womb? Even if these forget, yet I will not forget you.
Isaiah 49:15

Now this is what the Lord says–the One who created you, Jacob, and the One who formed you, Israel–”Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine. I will be with you when you pass through the waters, and when you pass through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. You will not be scorched when you walk through the fire, and the flame will not burn you…Because you are precious in my sight and honored, and I love you.”
Isaiah 43:1-2,4

He watches over his nest like an eagle and hovers over his young; he spreads his wings, catches him, and lifts him up on his pinions. The Lord alone led him, with no help from a foreign god.
Deuteronomy 32:11-12

The Lord your God who goes before you will fight for you, just as you saw him do for you in Egypt. And you saw in the wilderness how the Lord your God carried you as a man carries his son all along the way you traveled until you reached this place.
Deuteronomy 1:30-31

He lifted them up and carried them all the days of the past.
Isaiah 63:9

The Lord holds his hand.
Psalm 37:24

Lord, you are a God who heals. You are a God who loves. You are a God who holds and carries your children through the hardest moments. I can’t hold [name] right now, but you can. Your heart of love is tender towards those who are yours. Carry [name] today. Let him/her feel your presence with them. I ask that you would calm his/her heart and mind and allow [name] to rest in your faithful love. You promise that whatever comes our way, you are there guiding us and will never let us go. Never once have we walked alone, and [name] is not alone now. Please watch over [name] through this surgery.

 


Prayers for God’s Healing


But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings, and you will go out and playfully jump like calves from the stall.
Malachi 4:2

For I am the Lord who heals you.
Exodus 15:26

Praise the Lord, oh my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, oh my soul, and forget not all his benefits–who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion; who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Psalm 103:1-5

Heal me, oh Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are my praise.
Jeremiah 17:14

And Jesus said to the centurion, “Go; it shall be done for you as you have believed.” And the servant was healed at that very moment.
Matthew 8:13

Lord, you are the Healer. Your power that healed the centurion’s servant in Matthew is working today. You still work miracles today.  Thank you for gifting the staff at the hospital with the brilliance and skill to excel at administering medical healing. Thank you for the training that the surgeons and medical staff have received to perform [name’s] surgery today. We ask that you would be their wisdom and guide their hands as the ultimate physician. Please let the surgery go smoothly and with no complications. Bring a full recovery to [name] and leave no sign of illness. Please show your healing power today.

 


Prayers for Hope


I rise before dawn and cry out for help; I put my hope in your word.
Psalm 119:147

You are my shelter and my shield; I put my hope in your word.
Psalm 119:114

We wait for the Lord; he is our help and shield.
Psalm 33:20

He will not fear bad news; his heart is confident, trusting in the Lord.
Psalm 112:7

Rest in God alone, my soul; for my hope comes from him.
Psalm 62:5

We who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to seize the hope set before us. We have this hope as an anchor for our lives, safe and secure.
Hebrews 6:18-19

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
Hebrews 10:23

God, I confess that yours is hope that I can stand on. Your hope anchors me when I feel overwhelmed because your hope is secure. Wash me in the truth of who you are as I wait during [name’s] surgery today. Fill [name], the doctors, our family, and our community with your hope that does not disappoint. When fear, anger, and discouragement show up, help us to acknowledge the emotions and rely on you to provide love, peace, and joy in their place. Fill us with your peace that surpasses understanding. Fill us with your light. I love you, oh Lord, my strength.

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe in him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13

    PLEASE PRAY for my dear friend Helena ( Isabela ),She left earlier this morning for a 4-5 week stay in the hospital. She has many health problems to overcome and I pray for her to return home safely and successfully after her stay in the hospital. I pray that the doctors can help her and are skilled and knowledgeable enough to help take away her pains, and help cure her ailments. I pray that any procedure Helena ( Isabela ) must go through, she does so with a successful outcome, and that her pain during her recovery is minimal. I ask you to pray for Helena’s ( Isabela’s ) full recovery with no complications and may the Lord watch over her and keep her safe through this hospital stay. And may Helena ( Isabela ) return home safe and healthy so that she may resume her life and be happy after her hospital stay as I don’t want anything bad to happen to her…She is my very dear friend and I love her,… In Jesus’ name I pray….Amen !!

    Please pray for me, Mary, and my surgery tomorrow, Nov. 28th over the noon hour (CT.) I have a disk that is pushing on a nerve in my leg and the neurosurgeon is going to cut away that part of the disk. I have been mostly lying down all of this year because of nerve pain. My husband and 5 kids at home are ready to have their mom back. Because it has been pushing on the nerve for over 6 months, the surgeon said there is a greater chance that the nerve will still give me pain even though it is no longer being pinched. We are hanging onto hope in God’s loving heart, and also submitting ourselves to His perfect will — that whatever the outcome, it is from His hand and He knows best. Thanks for praying for me.

    Asking for prayer for my 3 month old grandson having heart surgery for an aortic arch anomaly. This baby’s birth followed his stillborn sister’s birth a year ago, so there is a heightened amount of anxiety with the parents. Prayer for a successful surgery and comfort for the parents.

    Please pray with my Family and I.
    My Daughter Linda is having a hysterectomy tomorrow morning, After being blessed with having given birth to five beautiful children. Unfortunately, personal medical issues have caused her to make the decision to have surgery. I leave my Daughters health and well being in the miraculous hands of Our Lord through whom all things are made possible, and with faith filled hearts we wait. We cannot be there for her because we live too far away and its of such short notice and so I ask you all to join us in prayer. In Jesus name Amen.

    My daughter Mariah Love has just got her heart transplant. She’s 3 years old and has a heart condition called RCM. We got the call Sunday night that they found a donor. We drove 3 hours to the hospital to begin the process of the surgery. After a long 12 hours Monday 1/15/18 of surgery she was successfully transplanted with a new heart. She’s doing good but still has. A lot of recovery to do. We will be in the hospital for months due to the illness. But I pray that GOD takes over as he already has and comes in and lifts everyone’s spirits and faithfulness and brings us all together to help heal her faster and a easy transition back to her normal 3 year old life.
