20 Bible Verses To Pray Before Surgery
Today we will be dealing with 20 Bible verses to pray before surgery. Are you going under the knife soon? Do you have someone close to you who might be entering the theatre soon? Regardless of how minor the surgery is said to be by the medication practitioners. The facts remain, that there is only a thin line between life and death. I have seen many people die from surgery that was considered minor. Also, I have seen people survive surgeries that are considered major or fatal. It is all about the grace of God.
When a man is about to go under the knife, most times they induce the person. At this point, the person is not dead or alive. The spirit will keep wandering about. It is at this point that some people don’t make it back to life. In other surgeries that don’t require the patient to be induced, there could be complications during or after the surgery.
Over the years, I have seen people operated on three to four times due to complications generated from the first surgery. There is nothing pleasant about going under the knife. But if you have to go under the knife to stay alive, you need every form of support and help you can get. The Lord is still in the business of helping His people. He wants to take charge of that surgery and give you an excellent result.
We have compiled a list of 20 Bible verses to pray before surgery. Use for yourself. Use them to pray for a friend or family member going under the knife soon. The Lord shall make everything become perfection.

Who has believed what he has heard from us? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed.

Selah I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah
