“Good Morning, God” ~ When Your Baby’s Having Surgery

Posted on Sep 15, 2014 in Faith | 69 comments

IMG_1479Dear Readers:  This is the first in my new “Good Morning, God” series of prayers.  This prayer is for any mom (or dad) whose child will be undergoing surgery–if that is you, the prayer is for you.  It is specially dedicated to the mothers at CURE hospitals around the world who are hurting emotionally and spiritually because of their child’s condition.  If you know of someone in a similar situation, fearful and in need of God’s strength and comfort, please feel free to pass the prayer along.  To God be the glory.   

“You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.  Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.” ~ Isaiah 26:3-4

Good morning, God

I’ve come to meet with You

Because I’m scared

For too long

My baby’s been suffering

Now surgery is today

I am thankful

But also terrified

I’ve never been through this

And I feel so alone

And helpless

But Your Word says

You are my refuge and strength

An ever present help in trouble

You tell me not to fear

You say, “Be still, and know that I am God”

So I will, LORD

I will believe You and trust You

Please take care of my baby

Let the surgery go well

Thank You for the doctors, nurses and staff

And, most of all, God,

Thank You for being with me

For never leaving me

I love You, too

It’s in Jesus’ name I pray

Amen

Psalm 46, Deuteronomy 31:8, Isaiah 41:10
