Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagles.”

The Lord will heal your wounds. Psalm 147 is another powerful Psalm to read before surgery because it does not only speak about the Lord’s comforting hands but also speaks of the Lord’s willingness to heal your wounds.
