Prayers for Surgeons

Below is a prayer to guide surgeon’s hands

“Almighty Father in Heaven, thank you for the knowledge you have given to the surgeons. Lord, guide their hands every time they do their work. At times it may look impossible but you have all the answers. In difficult situations reveal to them the knowledge needed to save lives. You are the giver of life and you healed all the sick people who came to you. Send your Holy Spirit to guide the surgeons in the right direction. Grant them compassion that they may effectively care for the sick, just like the way you did when the sick came to you.

Lord, you have numbered the days of man on earth. If it is your will for the patient to come to you, kindly grant peace to the surgeon{s} attending him or her once your will is done. Strengthen their faith to offer hope when all hope seems to have come to an end. Bless their families and watch over them. Provide the grace they need to support their loved ones. May you be glorified for helping the surgeons save lives and cure diseases. All the praises come to you. In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen.”
