What Bible verses should you read for surgery and recovery?

Therefore, this verse encourages you that God can heal you and give you a full recovery after your surgery.
Jeremiah 17:15 “Heal me, Lord, and I will be healed; save me, and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.” Believe in God’s healing, and He will heal you. Read this verse to remind yourself that God has the power to heal, and He will make your surgery successful and give you a full recovery afterward.
Isaiah 41:10 “ Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Knowing that people will open your body with knives during surgery can make you worried and frightened. However, God is saying that we should not fear because He is with us to strengthen and help us as he upholds us with his righteous right hand. Therefore, read this verse to get the confidence you need before going to the surgery and to get the assurance that God is with you.
Should you pray before or after surgery?
You should pray before and after the surgery. Pray before the surgery to make your petition to God that He will enable the surgery to be a success. After the surgery is a success, pray to thank God because He answered your prayers.
According to Philippians 4:6-7, the Bible implies that we should not be anxious about anything, but instead, let our needs be known to God, with prayer, supplications, and thanksgiving. Therefore, you should pray to God before your surgery for Him to help you not be anxious and give you peace that is beyond human understanding. Also, you should be thankful to God when the surgery is over, and no matter the outcome, God has done his will.
Can you say these prayers for a friend’s surgery?
Yes, you can say these prayers for a friend’s surgery. According to 1 Timothy 2:1, the Bible suggests that God wishes we pray for all people. It is God’s will that we get to pray for other people. Have Faith that God will heal your friend and pray for them. They might not be strong enough to pray for themselves due to fear, but you can help them by being strong in the Lord and praying that God walks with them in and out of the surgery room.
Also, Jesus taught that we should love one another as he loved us in the book of John 13:34. Jesus showed his love by healing people and praying for them. Therefore, you can also show your love for your friend by praying for them so that God can perform a healing miracle upon them.
