Praying with bible in hand

How often should I pray for successful surgery and recovery?

It is up to you how often you choose to pray for successful surgery and recovery. Some people may choose to pray multiple times a day, while others may pray less frequently.

However, the bible recommend that you pray without ceasing ( 1 Thessalonians 5:17), it means that regardless of your frequency of prayer (whether 3 or 4 times per day) it must be continual.

Moreover, it is important to find a frequency that works for you and feels comfortable and meaningful to you.

I would also personally recommend that you pray at night as often as you can because at night hours is when the devil intensifies his attacks on believers.

Are there any specific scriptures I should use when praying for successful surgery and recovery?

There are many verses in the Bible that you can use when praying for successful surgery and recovery. Here are a few examples:

Psalm 34:18 says, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

Psalm 32:18 can be a comfort to you as you pray for God’s presence and healing during your surgery and recovery.

Isaiah 41:10 says, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 41:10 can be a reminder that God is with you and will give you the strength and help you need during this difficult time.

James 5:15 says, “And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.”

James is saying in this verse that there’s hope, and assurance that when you offer your prayers in faith, healing, recovery and forgiveness will be your portion from the Lord.

Philippians 4:6-7 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

This verse can be a reminder to trust in God and to offer your concerns to Him in prayer with thanksgiving, knowing that He will give you peace.

Remember, it is ultimately God’s will to heal you, so no matter how you feel after praying, keep praying until healing and recovery manifest in your body. You can read our entire collection of scriptures after surgery to confess while praying for healing.
