Prayer: When Your Baby’s Having Surgery

“You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.”

Isaiah 26:3-4

Good morning, God
I’ve come to meet with You
Because I’m scared
For too long
My baby’s been suffering
Now surgery is today
I am thankful
But also terrified
I’ve never been through this
And I feel so alone
And helpless
But Your Word says
You are my refuge and strength
An ever present help in trouble
You tell me not to fear
You say, “Be still, and know that I am God”
So I will, LORD
I will believe You and trust You
Please take care of my baby
Let the surgery go well
Thank You for the doctors, nurses and staff
And, most of all, God,
Thank You for being with me
For never leaving me
I love You, too
It’s in Jesus’ name I pray

Psalm 46, Deuteronomy 31:8, Isaiah 41:10
