A Prayer for After Surgery

Please pray for Father Henry, as he recuperates from his operation.

After an Operation

Holy Father, the only true physician of our souls and bodies, who cast down and lift up, accept me as I come in all humility to glorify you and thank you for preserving, by your grace, your servant, the priest Henry, through his recent operation.
We thank you for blessing the attending physicians and the means employed for his cure, and for restoring him safe and sound to his  family and Church, having fended off every danger against his body and soul.
Raise him speedily, we pray you, from the bed of illness on which he   lies and return him  to his  home and peaceful pursuits.

Grant that the suffering of his  body may avail for the purifying of his soul and may lead him to return, in thanksgiving, to the works of his  hands and to Christ Jesus, the Physician of soul and body.

Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on us and save us. Amen.

Christ Healing
