Prayer before an Operation
O Lord Jesus Christ our God, You patiently endured the scourging and wounding of your sacred body, that You may save the souls and bodies of your people. Look now graciously on my suffering body, + and give me the strength to bear patiently whatever awaits me. Bless the people and all the means which will be used to restore me to health, and grant that I may accept my bodily sufferings as a means of reparation for the salvation of my soul. For You, O Christ, my God and Savior, are merciful, and I give glory to You, together with your eternal Father and with your all-holy and life-giving spirit, now and ever, and forever. Amen.
