Prayer for Someone Going Into Surgery
(a prayer for a friend to have a successful operation)

Lord,

You have soothed us, saying "do not worry about tomorrow".
Thank you that you pour out your spirit upon us a new each day.
Thank you that your grace is sufficient for us within each moment that we live.

So I pray for my loved one that they would know your peace in their hearts.
A peace that surpasses all understanding.
A peace that guards their hearts and minds.
A peace that they receive from Christ himself.

Lord, as they undergo this surgery, come and be present, watching, waiting, moving to help and guard every moment during this procedure. May they be held in your loving arms and protected from all harm.

In Jesus name,

Amen.

Prayer for surgery to go well

(a patient's prayer for peace and healing)


Father,

As I go for surgery I rest into your promises. I lean back into your love for me, and ask for your protection as I undergo this operation. I sink into your peace as the surgeons work with your spirit to bring restoration. I lie down holding your hand of grace that leads me through the darkest of times and into new seasons filled with hope. I know that when I am most vulnerable you will be with me, that your love, restoration and grace will hold me safe.

Amen.

Prayer For Peace Of Mind

(the prayer poem in the film above)


Lead me to your still streams O Lord
Where I can kneel in the waters of life
Lay down my anxious thoughts
And cast all my cares on You

Here I will wait a while
Wait a while
And bathe in the life-giving waters

Bathe my mind in Your Spirit O God
Come fill my being with Your peace

Bathe my heart with Your love O God
Come still my being with Your peace

Bathe my spirit with Your freedom O God
Come saturate this life with Your peace

Dwell at Christmas

In this season of giving, it is hard sometimes to cut through the commercial trappings, rise above the “perfect Christmas” expectations and truly connect with loved ones to give a gift that is really yearned for. We (like most creatives) sometimes find it hard to “push” our own work, to believe that our music can Read More
