Prince of Peace, thank you that you are perfectly faithful. You never forget, you never fail and you never take back a promise. You have promised that, if I abide in you, I will produce much fruit. Help me to abide in you as I face surgery and the following recovery. Remind me that you are always with me. May you, the God of all grace, who has called me into eternal glory by Christ Jesus, make me holy, strong and filled with peace. To you be glory and honor for ever and ever. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
