7 Calming Prayers for Eye Surgery

Last Updated on December 4, 2023 by Emma

Individuals get eye surgery for a variety of reasons. Whether it is for corrective eye repair, or because their glasses no longer fit their very active lifestyle, God has allowed you to see clearly through surgery and hopefully you will no longer need any extra assistance. These surgeries are amazing opportunities and there have been massive technological advances over the last few years.

I know having any kind of surgery can be stressful, but it is also a great time to rely heavily on God. Isaiah 41:10 teaches “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you! Don’t be frightened, for I am your God! I strengthen you–yes, I help you–yes, I uphold you with my saving right hand!”

Believing in our Lord gives us a sense of peace through stressful times. As you prepare for your eye surgery and work through all the related medical tests, make sure you take the time to be thankful to our Lord for giving you this opportunity. Your surgery will be a blessing on the other side, sometimes it is better to look forward and not worry so much about the present.

I pray that your eye surgery goes well and you receive the best sight possible through your procedure. We have many people in our family who use different eye surgeries to see and it has been such a blessing for every one of them. If you have any specific prayer for eye surgery requests, please leave them in the comments below!

Concluding Thoughts

God has blessed us in so many ways. He has given us so many advancements in technology which help us heal and get better. It is our job to acknowledge those blessings and thank our Lord for providing them.

While you are healing, I hope you remember that our Lord is with you always. Jeremiah 17:14 taught us to ask our Lord for healing “Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise.” This is just another confirmation that when you pray to him he will hear you and prayer is a powerful tool in healing from any surgery whether it’s related to the birth of a new baby, dental care, or anything in between. God will always be there to listen.

I pray that you have a quick healing process and recover well. I hope that you can feel our Lord with you during your surgery and your time of healing. I also hope that your vision is greatly improved after your surgery!
