Pain, anxiety and worry rock the heart of any parent whose child is sick and needs surgery. At times, the helplessness is almost palpable that one has nowhere else to turn except God. Your sweet daughter, dear parent, has to go through surgery to get out of a life-threatening health condition. And really, there is no surgery of small magnitude, so being afraid of the process for baby girls is humane. But do you know that no one can, through worry, add anything worthwhile to their lives? In Matthew 6: 27, Jesus asked and said, “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” What you should do, is pray. I believe that is why you are here today, searching for how to ease the burdens and pains in your heart.
All daughters to their parents are precious gifts from the Almighty God but are always vulnerable, so they are always most protected. But when the only option of survival or healthy living a parent has for their daughter is an operation, such a situation can be extremely frightening. But like I said earlier, the Lord promise in his word that if we humble ourselves and call upon his name, he will hear us from heaven and come to our rescue (2 Chronicle 7: 14 paraphrased).
You should bear your pains, anxieties and fears before the one who gave you this beautiful girl and does not allow the devil to play a fast one on you. Use the prayers below to call upon His name, cry out for mercy for your baby girl who cannot help herself right now, speak to the Lord on her behalf. He will hear you. He will stretch out his hand and make this surgery a smooth process and return your daughter to you in health.
