No one actually wants to undergo a surgery, but it’s a health necessity that can be unavoidable. It’s a daunting time, and anyone who’s about to have a procedure should get all the reassuring messages they can get.
If someone you love is about to go through a surgical procedure, cheer them up and help them look forward to their recovery by sending them one of these sweet and touching messages!
It would do you no good to worry when you have a big surgery ahead of you, so let me do that for you. Your surgery is a simple one, and you know that you have the best doctors working on you. So relax and I’ll see you when you wake up.
Just think of this surgery as a simple procedure where you’ll go to sleep for a bit and wake up feeling all better and fixed. You’re in good hands and I’ve prayed with all my might that you’ll make it through just fine.
If you’re feeling a little worried, that’s normal. Don’t think that it’s a sign that you won’t make it through. This surgery will have you feeling better in no time. So while you’re waiting for the doctors to come and get you, just relax and imagine all the awesome things you’ll be doing once you can go out and about again!
Don’t let this disease get to you. You’re so much stronger than a bunch of viruses. You’re the one I look up to in life, so you absolutely must get through this procedure. We’re all counting on your safe recovery.
I know you’re in a lot of pain right now, and you must be thinking that the surgery itself will be painful too. But bear in mind that whatever pain this procedure might bring will pay off tenfold when you’re all better and ready to get back up on your feet. I have faith that you’ll get through this with flying colors.
Look to the future with enthusiasm and positivity. Let the negativity leave your body as soon as the doctors take care of whatever it is that’s ailing you. Close your eyes and rest as the experts in this hospital do all that they can to make you well again. And when they’re done, you can go and live that bright future you’ve always dreamed of.
I’m sending you all the positive energy during this trying time. Though I may not be with you in body, I’m there with you in spirit. I’m always thinking of you and praying for your recovery. And when you’re well enough, we can see each other again and relive the good old days.
I’m with you always. From doctor’s appointments to lab tests to hospital stays, I’m here with you every step of the way. They might not let me be right by your side when they’re performing your procedure, but I’ll be right by the door waiting for word on how you are doing. And when you open your eyes from the haze of anesthesia, I want to be the first person you see.
I’ve done all my research so I can know everything I can about your surgery. I want to be as informed as possible because I know I can’t be there beside the doctor telling him to be careful with the person I hold dear. And from what I’ve read, so many people have undergone the same procedure and came out even better than they were before. That’s what I’m wishing for.
All the doctors who will be working on you are experts in their field. They know exactly what they’re doing and they’ve probably done it a hundred times. So if you’re worried about something going wrong, I want to remind you that you’re in good hands. These doctors will take the best care of you.
I have always admired your courage and your knack for cheering people up during the most difficult times. I only wish I could borrow that talent for one day so I can reassure you that everything is going to be okay. I promise that when you’re out of the hospital and ready to walk around again, we’ll do everything you’ve ever wanted and more.
Have faith in the doctors’ and nurses’ hands this day because they’re the ones who are going to make sure you will be all better once you wake up. It may not be the most comfortable procedure in the world, but they know what they’re doing and they know that this is the best procedure for you. Put your faith in their skill and rest easy as they make you all better again.
Of all the things you’ve experienced, this surgery might be the least comfortable one. However, because I want you to feel all better again, this is the best thing we can do. The doctors will get rid of whatever is ailing you and they’ll patch you right up. And when you wake up, you won’t remember a thing. All you’ll be doing is breathing a sigh of relief that the ordeal is finally over and you can be on you way to healing once again.
The world needs brave, beautiful, and beloved people like you. There’s no way God will allow one of his angels to suffer. He will make sure that you will soon be healthy again, just as he makes sure that your family has an angel like you in our lives.
Get well soon, my dear friend. You’ll be entering the surgery room soon, but I know that this will just be another one of your adventures. You may be asleep the whole time, but I’m sure you’ll get out of this adventure just fine, just like you always do.
I want to tell you that I am with you in this difficult time of your life, and I want to remind you that you are a very strong man and that you will be able to recover quickly from your surgery. Keep your spirits up!
Imagine that everything will turn out well and you will be in your home in no time with the people you love most and you will see that you will feel much calmer. May God bless you! I hope to see you soon!
Imagine yourself at home, recovering from surgery and then doing all the things you love so much. Everything is going to turn out great, so have keep up your spirits and God will accompany you.
Many blessings on your operation dear friend, I know that surgery is a complicated thing for all of us and that it is always a source of stress, but God will help you and everything will go perfect.
For every minute you’re in there with the doctors, I’m with you in spirit. You are the bravest soul I know, and I’m sure that once you come out of that room and out of your slumber, you’ll feel ten years younger!
Help your loved one feel calm and reassured right before their surgery by sending them one of these sweet messages. They’re sure to remember just how good you made them feel during one of the most trying times in their life!

Prayer Before Surgery
Before surgery, it’s important to turn to God and ask Him to enable you to trust in a good outcome. Call on God to help you contribute your own share of optimism and confidence. Also, call on God to keep far from you any presumptions that it all depends exclusively on you. Welcome His presence into your surgery. If you’re looking for strength and healing before a surgery, pray this prayer: Heavenly Father, grant me joyful acceptance of the surgery which awaits me, and let this be the relief and cure which I seek. Make skilled the work of the surgeon and that of his team for it is unto their knowledge and skill that I give myself for healing. I pray to You, O Lord, that this procedure will be without complication, and that my recovery will be speedy and complete. Amen.
“God will take care of everything you need.” (Philippians 4:19 The Message)
How do we trust that God will take care of us as He does the birds and the trees? Believing God’s Word will fan the flame of our faith as we live it out in hard circumstances. When the ache of the unknown looms in front us as we place our lives in the hands of surgeons, prayer gives peace to our hearts and physically tired bodies. Use this prayer for yourself, or with friends and family before heading into surgery.
A Prayer for Surgery
Father, praise You for this life. As we prepare for surgery to the body You have given us, many things flow into our minds and out of our hearts as we lie in wait. Yet, You reassure us in Exodus 15:26: “I am the Lord who heals you.”
We have an end picture in our minds as to what “healed” looks like for us, and desperately look to You for assurance that our lives and our pain will be healed. You are above all, see all, know all, and are capable of healing all. When Jesus walked the earth, He healed by the touch of His hand and the sound of His voice. We pray to feel Your healing hand upon us, Lord, and hear Your voice of peace and tranquility boom over the loud pain that throbs through our minds and bodies.
Thank You for a life that is valuable to us and to those around us. We are worth enough to worry about, and thankful enough for the life we’ve been blessed with on this earth to covet our return to it and full restoration of it. With grateful hearts we come to You in praise for the gift of being able to trod this earth and experience Your love.

Forgive us, Father, for doubting our purpose on earth. We confess just how often we run from what You are calling us to do because we feel it is too hard. And now, as we await the outcome of surgery, we feel compelled to reach back and grab every opportunity that has ever passed us by to walk behind Your Son in pursuit of Your will for our lives. Please forgive our disobedience, and lack of respect for Your timing and Your plans. Help us to place our current and future ambitions on bringing You glory, and the love of Your Son to all who know us.
Father, we trust You with our lives. For You promise us: “Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.” (Psalm 30:2)
Bless the surgeons and medical staff that will operate on us. Be with them and equip them to be extensions of Your healing hand. Remain present with me, Lord, even when I fall asleep from the pain medication. Help me to feel Your presence, and remember that You are always with me. Never leaving. Always faithful. Loving me more than I’m capable of understanding.
And now for the hardest part: Truly trusting the outcome of my life in Your hands. For it’s when our plans for healing don’t look the same as Yours that we become frustrated, and faith threatens to pull out of our hearts. Doubt can seep in through the cracks in unexpected circumstances. In those moments, Lord Jesus, strengthen us to remember You. Your ways are not our ways, because only You can claim true love for us. Only You know what is perfect and just in the daily happenings of our lives. Our time here is so fleeting, but our belief in You, Jesus, sets us apart and ensures us life everlasting. Pain free and full of peace.

Help us to hold on to that belief. To hold onto You. As we travel this road of uncertainty, send Your Holy Spirit to inspire our heart’s memory of Your sweet words of promise. Help us to recall and repeat the promises You have given us through Your Word. Be with our families and friends as they worry and wonder what the outcome will be. Inspire Your love in their hearts and assure them that my life is in Your hands.
Father, let all who know me witness my peace in this process, and know that it is from You. Thank You for life, God. Bless and heal me today through this surgery. Whether You bring me through these ailments to restore me upright on this earth, or take me through to You, I trust You… today, and always. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
