Maker of heaven and earth,
Thank you for the role of doctors, nurses, and surgeons. Thank you for the blessing of knowledge and understanding, for the breakthroughs in medicine and all the specialist treatments.
Lord, may you oversee each area of this surgery, every detail and protect me and keep me as I look forward to recovery and the future.
I dwell in your love, hope and strength always.

Amen.
