prayers for surgery today

February 6, 2020

Happy Thursday friends! As many of you are aware, today I will undergo the second part of surgery for the kidney stones that I started to have dealt with a couple of weeks ago

This morning I am resting as I will be leaving to check into the hospital at 12:50pm (EST) to have the surgery which is scheduled for 2:50pm. I am extremely nervous about this procedure as despite having several surgeries I do not like to be put to sleep and would covet prayers for peace and no fear. 

"Tell those who are terrified, be brave and don't be afraid, your God will come... He will come and rescue you." 
-Isaiah 35:4-

I am finding such comfort in the midst of the anxiety, unknown, and fear in this verse from Isaiah 35:4. I know that I am not the only one who is approaching unknowns, surgeries, scary diagnosis', and a whole host of other things in this week ahead. I wanted to share with y'all my prayer for surgery tomorrow... I hope it will be an encouragement to those of you walking a similar path... 

"God, my God, you know my fearful and terrified heart and state. I am gripped by anxiety over the surgery I have to undergo. I m very much frightened of the entire procedure. Lord, your word says that you will strengthen me on my bed of illness and you will sustain me on my sickbed. Yes Lord! I trust your word and turn to you for help. Human wisdom and skill are nothing before you. So please fill the doctors who attend to me with your divine wisdom Lord so that they can perform this surgery in a perfect manner. Take all of those who assist them and everyone associated with the surgery in your hands and keep them as your instruments in bringing healing to me. While this has caught us up short and surprised us, YOU Lord are not surprised by anything. Nothing is of a surprise to you. Use this Lord to bring about healing. Use this Lord for your glory even though right now things seem dark and scary. May this situation reflect your love and goodness and showcase your love and power. Shine your light into the darkness Lord. I cling to your promises that you are always with me, wherever I go! You are already there Lord. As I am wheeled into the room, feeling alone and scared- your presence will be there to meet and to guide. You never forget the cry of the humble and needy. Lord, hold my hand tightly and grant me your peace as I move forward so that I can undergo this surgery courageously. I know you will do all of this because you are the one who perfects everything for my life. I totally and completely rest on you and thank you for always being with me and carrying me and rescuing me Lord. You are the God of miracles and we are trusting you for big miracles today."

Thank you for all of your continued prayers for me, for my mom who will be with me, and also for peace and for a successful surgery with no complications.  Thank you again dear friends for your love, prayers, and support. 

"He is the maker of Heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them-- He remains faithful forever."
- Psalm 146:6-
