When your friend is about to go into surgery, there are other ways to show support for them beyond flowers, letters, and your presence.
Through prayers, you can show your support to your friend going for surgery. The power of God is always willing and available to help, provide strength, and heal.
This is why you should learn to engage in this divine power when your friend is about to go for surgery.
There are different prayers you can make for your friend. However, I have identified 11 short prayers to make. Each of these prayers is powerful enough to bring your desired result.
Are you ready to say these prayers? Let’s get into this right away.
