32 Prayers for Children's Surgery with Bible Verses (For Healing and Quick Recovery)

Jesus has a soft spot in His heart for little children (Luke 18:16, Mark 9:37, Matthew 18:10).

He cares about them and never wants any evil to happen to them. However, Satan is always after what God cherishes to destroy it (John 10:10).

One tool he uses is sickness and diseases. But God is kind and loving and always willing to deliver His children from the claws of sickness and even death.

He says in His Word in Matthew 15:26-28 that healing is the children's bread.

Here are 32 powerful prayers with scriptures to declare on your child about to undergo surgery to ask for help, total restoration, and a miracle.
