One of these children is having surgery today at Duke and I wanted to post a few prayers. If you come across this post today please say a prayer for Banks Buckner.
Almighty God our heavenly Father, graciously comfort your servant Banks in her suffering, and bless the means made use of for her cure. Fill her heart with confidence that, though at times she may be afraid, she yet may put her trust in you; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Strengthen your servant Banks, O God, to do what she has to do and bear what she has to bear; that, accepting your healing gifts through the skill of surgeons and nurses, she may be restored to usefulness in your world with a thankful heart; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Heavenly Father, giver of life and health; Comfort and relieve your sick servant Banks, and give our power of healing to those who minister to her needs, that she may be strengthened in her weakness and have confidence in your loving care; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
