Prayers for John

Good morning! I don't know when I'll have a computer again - so I'm prewriting this to post in the morning.

I'll be taking John to the hospital at 6 in the morning and his surgery is scheduled for 7:30 in the morning. I know that we will be praying - but it never hurts to have as many others out there praying as possible.

Here is my prayer for tomorrow:

"Heavenly Father, please be with John today as he goes through surgery for the first time. He is everything to me, and I trust in you to see him through this procedure. Please be working through the doctors, nurses and other hospital workers as they care for John's needs throughout his stay at the hospital. They are our guide as to how to take care of him at home - and I know that you will give them the wisdom to take the best care they can of him while he is there.

Please be with me as I give my husband over to these people to give him a tool that will make his life only get better from here. I put everything I have in your hands to care for him while I can't... and I will care for him in your image from that point on. Please give me strength and patience to make it through the unknown moments of his surgery... the moments that the doctors are working, but that I won't know what is happening. In your name, I pray. Amen"
