Why do you need prayer before surgery

Prayer before the operation, addressed to God, fills the soul with calmness and hope, works miracles.

“We are not omnipotent, pray,” the doctors say. This is right: the human body is so complicated that any accident can put on the brink of life and death.

Often the patient turns to God for the first time, fearing the unknown outcome of the medical procedure, and general anesthesia is perceived as temporary death.

Saints do not help a person with their own strength, but with prayers to God, the One who feeds what is asked for their holiness.

Prayer to the Lord God before the operation


Lord of the Almighty, Holy King, punish and do not mortify, affirm the inferior, erect the overthrown, bodily people of sorrow, correcting and, we pray to you, our God, thy servant, who is weak, visit thy mercy, forgive him all sinful and arbitrary sin.

To her, Lord, Your medical strength has been lowered from heaven, touch the bodies, extinguish the firetower, tame the passion and all weakness lurking, be the doctor of Your servant (name),

raise him up from the bed of the sickly, and from the bed of bitterness whole and perfect, grant him to Your Church, pleasing and doing Thy will, Thou who is merciful and save us, our God, and We glorify Thee, Father and Son and Holy Spirit, now and forever and ever, amen.

What saint should pray for the health of the patient before the operation?

  • the blessed Matrona of Moscow is addressed not only before the operation, but also in cases of problems with the child, mother, son and loved one with health,
  • Saint Panteleimon the Healer is also addressed with prayers - both before and after the operation. He, too, during the lifetime of many healed and put on his feet.

  • and of course, it’s not out of place to pray to his Guardian Angel.

Prayer to Jesus Christ before surgery


Lord, forgive me, a sinner who did not listen to you, who violated your laws.

I very much repent and ask forgive me.

And help me survive the operation.

Please guide the doctors so that they do everything right and that their actions heal me.

And so that after the operation I went on the mend and recovered.

But, of course, Thy will be done.

In Your hands, Lord Jesus Christ, I give you my spirit and my life.

I beg you, Almighty, bless and have mercy on me.

Grant me, Lord, life and long days before Your face.

Thy mercy be upon me.

Forgive me my sins in the name of the Holy Son Jesus Christ.

I hope in you and trust in you, my Lord and my God.

Thy blessing be upon the hands of doctors, on what they will do.

Thy will be done, in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Now and forever and ever.

How to read a prayer before an operation to yourself and a loved one

  • First of all, you need to believe in the help of the Lord God and in the strength of the patient himself, that the operation will certainly go well - then it will be so.
  • For more effective prayer, you need to unite all the relatives and friends of the patient and read the prayer together. Let everyone be in his house, but just try to read everything at the same time.
  • It will be useful for relatives to visit the temple and pray there for a loved one. It is also necessary to put a candle for health and give church servants a note on the health of the sick (ill).
  • When you come home from the church, also be sure to pray in front of the icons that you have.
  • It is useful to pray just before the image of the saint to whom you are addressing. For greater prayer power, you can turn immediately to all the Saints whose prayers are written in the article. Icons with their image you can get in the church.
  • Prayer for the patient before the operation should be read at home with the TV and radio turned off, in seclusion and tranquility.
  • Ponder carefully and put your whole soul into each word of prayer.
  • Pray both during the operation (to be successful) and for the health of the surgeon. After successfully completing the operation, thank the Lord God and the saints for helping you.

Holy Great Martyr and Healer Panteleimon

In 2010, a wonderful case with an elderly person occurred in the Krasnodar City Hospital No. 1. He had an operation on a broken collarbone. General anesthesia was dangerous, doctors doubted whether such a patient could be operated on.

On the night before the operation, in a dream, a young man “in strange clothes” appeared to him, as the patient himself later told. Leaning over the bed, he handed the man a spoon with medicine and said: "Do not be afraid, everything will be fine."

The operation was successful, the doctors were surprised how easily the patient suffered anesthesia and how quickly the recovery began. Before discharge, the man accidentally saw the icon of the Healer Panteleimon and exclaimed: “Yes, it was he!”

The help of the Holy Great Martyr Panteleimon in diseases has been known for a long time. In earthly life (beginning of the 4th century), St. Panteleimon was a physician. Before healing, he prayed to the Christian God, which was dangerous: the Gentiles persecuted Christians. Seeing the decisiveness of the young healer, God gave him the power to heal the sick and raise the dead.

Instead of worries and worries before the operation, it is better to read the akathist to the Healer Panteleimon and then pray in your own words: "Holy Great Martyr Panteleimone, help the servant of God to undergo such an operation and recover to praise God."

Oh, the great saint of Christ, passionate and physician the merciful Panteleimone! Have mercy on me, the sinful servant of God (name), hear my moaning and cry, please the Heavenly Doctor of the souls and bodies of our Christ our God, may he grant healing from a cruel, oppressive illness. Accept the unworthy prayer of sinners more than all men. Visit me with a gracious visit. Do not be abhorred by my sinful ulcers, anoint them with the oil of your mercy and heal me, but sound soul and body, the rest of my days, by the grace of God, I can spend in repentance and pleasing to God, and I will be able to accept the good end of my stomach. Her servant of God! Pray for Christ God, may God grant me by your intercession the health of the body and the salvation of my soul. Amen".

Prayer before the operation of the Guardian Angel


Do not leave me, O my Guardian Angel, do not remember the errors of my youth and my past sins.

I hope in you,

you are my fortress, my refuge.

Save me from the nets of the sinner and from the wiles of an evil spirit.

You are my patron, given to me at Baptism.

With the peace of the enemies surrounding me, enlighten my mind, wandering in the darkness, look to me your holy face, and I shed tears and supplication before you.

Forgive your voice to me, O holy angel of mine, I am ready to listen to you,

have led - and I will fulfill your commandment,

show me the way - and I will follow you.

My iniquities multiplied without a number, but I washed for me, the holy Guardian of my life, breathe me the living feeling of your love and imagine the Lord tearing my grief:

He does not despise my tearful sacrifice, and at his mercy will forgive me my sins.

Saint Luke of Crimea

In surgeons' offices, you can often see the icon of St. Luke Voyno-Yasenetsky. This saint was glorified by the Church in 1996.

In earthly life, he was a famous surgeon, healed many patients, wrote the works on surgery used in medical practice today. In adulthood, Luke became a bishop, leaving no medical practice. God glorified the saint for professing faith in the difficult times of revolution and the Civil War.

After dying from the relics of St. Luke, healing continued. Through the prayers of the saint, the patients preparing for the operation were suddenly healed and no surgical intervention was required.

yes in eternal life with you we ceaselessly glorify the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, But all glory, honor and power are forever to Him forever and ever.

Holy Great Martyr Barbara

The Orthodox Church knows of cases of assistance of St. Barbara in critical cases during surgical operations.

The holy martyr is depicted in icons with the Chalice for the sacrament. This is no coincidence: Christians are afraid to die suddenly, without confessing and not sharing the Holy Mystery.

St. Barbara is asked to save from sudden death during anesthesia.

Holy glorious and all-holy Great Martyr Barbaro! Gatherings here in your temple of the Divine people, the race of your relics worshiping and kissing love, your suffering is martyr, and in them Samago the Passion-Christ, who did not give you the exact hedgehog to believe in Him, but also the hedgehog for Him to suffer, commending you, we pray, known for the desire of our intercessor: pray with us and be implored for us from His goodness of God,may he graciously hear us, asking for His blessing, and not forsake us all for salvation and life, the necessary petition, and grant Christian death to our stomach - painless, shameless, peaceful, Divine Mysteries, and to everyone, in every place, in all sorrow and in circumstances requiring His humanity and help, He will bring His great mercy, and let God grace abide with the grace of God and your warm intercession, soul and body; Ki centuries. Amen.

Prayer help of the Guardian Angels

An 80-year-old woman with a diagnosis of intestinal inversion entered the Krasnodar Regional Hospital. The only salvation was abdominal surgery, which the patient could not tolerate, she had a heart condition. Relatives were warned of a possible fatal outcome, everyone prayed, since there was nothing more to hope for.

Before the operation, the woman dozed off and saw a glowing face in front of her. She asked the first thing that came to mind: "Guardian Angel?" The vision immediately disappeared, and the patient’s soul was filled with calm and joy.

“Your grandmother is well done!” The doctors were amazed, prescribing the patient, who surprisingly easily departed from anesthesia and soon got to her feet. The woman told about the vision of the Angel already at home to happy relatives.

Guardian Angels are next to every baptized person. If you do not forget them in prayers, then they will not slow down with help.

Sometimes they advise short petitions of a "folk" composition, for example, "My angel, follow me, you are ahead, I am behind you." This is permissible, but there are no stronger prayers sanctified by the Orthodox Church, they must be said first.

Prayers on the day of surgery

Before the operation, the petitions from the “Prayers for the Dream to Come” are appropriate, because anesthesia is the same dream with an unknown outcome.

Mentally, you can read "Prayer before surgical action." Until anesthesia works, they say to themselves short prayers, “Lord, have mercy on me a sinner,” “Blessed Virgin Mary, save me.”

Lord of the Almighty, Holy King, punish and do not put to death, affirm the inferior, and raise up the overthrown, bodily people to correct sorrows, we pray to you, our God, thy servant (name) is weak, visit your mercy, forgiveness for him (her) not to be with you.

Raise him from the bed of the Painful and grant him health in the soul and body of Your Church, who is pleasing.

Prayer to Luka Krymsky during the operation

O all-blessed confession, to the hierarch our father Luko, the great saint of Christ!

With tenderness, it’s more tender than the knee of our hearts, and falling to your race of honest and multi-healing relics of yours, like a child of a father, we pray you heartily:

Prayers of loved ones

“Where two or three are gathered in My Name, there I am in their midst,” says Christ in the Gospel. This means that when a loved one is in the hospital, relatives and friends must add their voice to his prayer, then it will soon be heard by God.

Prayer during the operation is performed for the patient in the church. The priest will not refuse a request to serve a special prayer service “Before Surgical Action”, which is located in the Serbian inscription. It consists of the usual follow-up “On the Unfriendly” and a special prayer.

Not every church may have a Serbian demand book. This will be an occasion to donate a book for the temple or to suffer other works for organizing a prayer service, which is also accepted by God.

There is a custom to order magpies in forty temples. This is done whenever possible.

Candles and Sorokoosta set up have power only if they are accompanied by the prayer of the sick person and his relatives.

Prayer for surgeon Luka Krymsky

Oh, blessed confession, to the hierarch our father Luko, falling to you, like a child of a father, we pray to you:

Ask Christ our God to establish His child in the spirit of righteous faith and piety.

Give us your blessing, let us get rid of the wiles of the crafty one and avoid all enmity and disorder, heresies and schisms.

Lead us on the path of salvation and pray for God to us, in eternal life, let us be merciful to you without ceasing to glorify the One-Essential and Inseparable Trinity, the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

All glory, honor and power befits him forever and ever.

Prayer to the Most Holy Theotokos for a successful operation


O Blessed Lady of the Virgin Mary!

Raise us servants of God (names) from the depths of sin and deliver us from sudden death and from all evil.

May God grant us peace and health, and enlighten our mind and eyes of heart, so that we may be saved, and grant us, Your sinful servants, The Kingdom of Your Son, Christ our God:

as His power is blessed with the Father and His Most Holy Spirit.

Prayers after surgery

The worst is over and the person wakes up in intensive care, surrounded by caring nurses. As soon as consciousness clears up, the first prayer is being performed after the operation: "Glory to you, God!", "Virgin Mary, rejoice!" Then you need to remember all the saints whose prayers were asked the day before and thank them.

Upon returning to the ward, the prayer after the operation or recovery compiled by St. John of Kronstad is appropriate.

Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Only Begotten of the Primordial Father, heal the One every disease and every ulcer among people, forgiven me for my sinful sin and saved me from my illness, not allowing it to develop and put me to death for my sins. Grant me from now on, Master, the power to firmly do Your will to save my soul reproached and to Your glory with Your First Father and His Only Spirit, now and ever and ever. Amen.

For the speedy recovery, they pray at the icon of the Mother of God “Three Hands”, recalling the miracle that happened with Pr. John Damaskin (7th century).

During the persecution from heretics, John was terribly punished: his hand was chopped off for composing church hymns. Having put the severed brush to the wound, the saint prayed until the morning to the icon of the Virgin and in the morning found his hand perfectly healthy.

Prayer Matrone of Moscow during the operation

O blessed mother Matrono, the soul in heaven before the Throne of God is coming, the body is resting on earth, and given above grace, various miracles exuding.

Look now at thy gracious eye upon us sinners, in sorrow, sicknesses and sinful temptations, your dependent days,

we are comforted, desperate, heal our ailments of our fierce, let God through our sin allow us to deliver us from many troubles and circumstances,

implored our Lord Jesus Christ to forgive us all our sins, lawlessness and fall, we are from our youth even to the present day and hour of sinning,

yes, with your prayers, better grace and great mercy, we will glorify in the Trinity the Unified God, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, now and ever and forever.

Thanksgiving for a successful outcome

To thank God for a successful operation is the duty of a believer. The way to execute it is chosen to your liking:

  1. After the operation, a thanksgiving prayer is ordered in the temple, where they pray for the patient himself, his relatives and doctors.
  2. There is a custom to distribute treats with a request to pray for the health of the servant of God (name).
  3. A strong and beloved by many Christians prayer is Akathist Thanksgiving "Glory to God for everything."

Some Christians go on pilgrimages to holy places, making donations.

“God is the Doctor of human souls and bodies,” wrote St. Basil the Great, “and He prescribes a treatment for us that is as strong as the illness. Therefore, we will thank Him even when healing seems too cruel to us. ”

Prayer for fear of surgery


Alive in the help of the Most High, in the shelter of God, Heavenly will be established.

The Lord speaks: Thou my protector and my refuge, my God, and I trust in him.

Like Toy, he will deliver the cha from the net of prey, and from the word rebellious, His shoulders will overshadow the cha, and under His krill hope: His truth will pass by the arms of the cha.

Do not be afraid of the fear of the night, of the arrow flying in the days, of the thing in the darkness of the passing, of the shaking, and the demon of the midday.

Thousand will fall from your country, and right at your right hand, it will not come nearer to you, see both of your eyes, and behold the sinners' reward.

For thou, O Lord, my hope, the Most High has laid thy refuge.

Evil will not come to you, and the wound will not come near your body, as if by His Angel to command you, save thee in all your journeys.

Tha will be raised in your arms, and not when you stomp your foot on a stone, step on an asp and a basilisk, and cross a lion and a serpent.

For I trust in Me, and I will deliver it: I will cover it and, for My name is known.

He will call to me, and I will hear him: with him I am in tribulation, I will destroy him, and I will glorify him, for the longest days I will fulfill him, and I will show him my salvation.

Stories from St. Alexis Hospital

“The Lord will not despise the prayers of faith” - with these words, the patron saint of Orthodox doctors, St. Alexy, whose name is the main church hospital, performed one of the most famous healings in the history of Russian holiness.

The chief doctor, the priest-doctor and the hieroschimon-patient of the hospital of St. Alexius tell us why they should take a blessing for surgery or treatment, and the power of prayer for the doctors.

Since the time for those who are in the hospital is much longer than for those who work there, the proportionality of the stories is also relevant.

Spiritual Reality Affects Physical Reality

- For a believer to take a blessing for one or another important event of his life is just the norm. All the more natural is the desire to feel the grace of God precisely when we are especially hard, some serious treatment or operation is ahead.

From my practice as a trauma surgeon, I can testify: sometimes the operation goes on in one breath, and you immediately catch yourself thinking that for this person, who is now lying on the operating table, they probably pray deeply. So, I remember, quite a long time ago, in the fifth year of my medical practice, I operated on the mother of father Viktor Shipovalnikov. What I first saw then was completely incomparable with how all this happens to people of this age on the eve of surgery, during surgery and after. Everything happened incredibly easy! Mother Maria Borisovna herself, of course, is a wonderful person, and they blessed her for an operation and prayed for her ... And sometimes, with the same and even objectively simpler indicators, everything is incredibly complicated. It is, of course, impossible to deny the fact of the influence of spiritual reality on what is happening at the physical level.

Another thing is that sometimes it is necessary to do elementary gastroscopy, and a hospitalized patient will, by all means, seek to take a blessing, and not from anyone, namely from the all-Russian famous old man ... Even worse, if you contact anyone , receive a “blessing” not to do this or that examination or operation. They run into a young man in a frantic delight, and precious time is wasted ... I understand that some very spiritual person who really has a lot to discover from what follows will, in the specific case, not even bless the operation. But it is precisely people who are spiritually incompetent who often speculate on this issue, setting up gullible neophytes to ignore the recommendations of doctors. This must be warned of those, in general, who are not very church-minded, who have a tendency to seek in the blessing of some kind of magical guarantee.

How deeply spiritual he was, and — now the confirmations are already known — Vladyka Alexy (Frolov, † December 3, 2013), the Archbishop of Kostroma and Galichsky, and before that Orekhovo-Zuevsky, who blessed me to work in the hospital of St. Alexy, was shrewd and so he, when they turned to him for a blessing for an operation, I remember, he could call and ask him directly with a person: “Lesha, should this operation be done or not?”

In difficult situations, we, together with the hospital staff, are going to the cathedral prayer to our saint

A hospital is a charitable affair. I know this not only from the patristic writings - as you know, the first hospital complex in the world was built by St. Basil the Great - but I am constantly convinced of this through experience. Medical practice is complicated, we constantly pray to our heavenly patron.Vladyka Panteleimon, Bishop of Orekhovo-Zuevsky, Chairman of the Synodal Department for Church Charity and Social Ministry, as well as the Hospital Service Commission at the Diocesan Council of Moscow, serves the prayer service to St. Alexy twice a month. When we have some difficult situations, we, together with the staff, gather for a cathedral prayer to our saint. At especially important moments, we go to bow to the relics of the saint in the Elokhov Cathedral. Ceaselessly, miracles happen at the request of St. Alexis.

How are we given to participate in the sufferings of Christ

- The most convincing example on the topic of blessing on whether or not to perform an operation is perhaps already described by Vladyka Tikhon (Shevkunov) in the book “Unholy Saints”. Remember how there, Father John (Krestyankin) did not bless to do a trifling cataract surgery, and his child Valentina Pavlovna did not listen and died? Of course, this particular case does not need to be extended to everyone and everything. Usually, after all, spiritual people are sent to doctors for advice - to those whom God handed this specialty to. They, they say, know better whether the operation will be useful or more likely to harm.

If there is any doubt - it is possible to consult with doctors just the same at different. This is not at all that the reproachful practice of taking a blessing from one or another father: I didn’t like the way this one blessed, I’ll go to another ...

One must necessarily pray himself if there are internal forces for this, and the Lord, through people or circumstances, will necessarily reveal His will.

The blessing of a spiritually experienced person helps us better understand God's will for us.

You ask, why take the blessing for surgery or treatment? The fact is that a person, whether he is a believer or not, lives, in general, according to his passions. And passions overshadow the correct realization of God's will. Therefore, the participation of another person — spiritually experienced or simply loving a loved one — is necessary so that through his blessing it is better to understand the will of God for himself. Because when you suddenly found out about the diagnosis, you are in a state of confusion and it’s hard for you to figure out something.

Blessing is also necessary in order to distance oneself from one’s thoughts driven by despondency, fear or suspiciousness. In any critical situation, a person needs to go beyond the subjective perception of what is happening. We even ask for a blessing from a priest. Children, for example, are blessed by their parents. We can ask also from some spiritual person respected by us. The main thing is that he should live by conscience, by faith, then such people will have reasonableness, impassivity. Through such a person, God can reveal His will. However, as the case described by Vladyka Tikhon shows, the question of our perception of what has been said remains open.

Carrying the cross of disease is an complicity in the sufferings of Christ (see: Col. 1: 24). The more spiritual a person is, the more he actually suffers sorrows: from diseases, from other people, from circumstances. This pain brings him closer to God, makes him partakers of the Savior of the Cross. Grace acquired from the meek grateful acceptance of the cross unites with God. So, it happens that priests can suffer, even bodily carrying diseases, for their children. “Therefore,” says the apostle Paul, “if one member suffers, all members suffer with it” (1 Cor. 12:26). This is the order of things in Christian life. The Church is the Body of Christ (see: Eph. 1: 22–23). We - all humanity - are interconnected with each other, a single organism. All are descendants of Adam. In the Church, this is simply more tangible.

The main thing is our preparation for eternity

- Sometimes, it happens, they give a blessing not to have surgery. It depends on the one who gives the blessing and the one who asks for it.

At one time, Father Vladimir Shibaev served at the parish of the Protection of the Holy Virgin in Akulovo.The circumstances were such that even after the cessation of his services in Akulovo, we had to “intersect” either directly or through his spiritual children. Among them was a woman whom he, one might say, saved from spiritual death. Yes, and from the physical. Since she began to literally languish from some occult influence. The fact is that at that time she had close contact with psychics, she herself adopted this vicious practice from them, and her father was able to rescue her from all these fetters. And as a result, she literally came to life. And being completely grateful to him for this, she began to obey him in everything.

When she was diagnosed with cancer, the father blessed her not to have surgery. Everyone around was indignant and severely condemned the priest for it, but she obeyed the confessor in this as well. During the day, with his blessing, exactly as they write in the lives of the saints, in which it has long been a commonplace, she did good deeds, reciting the Jesus prayer, and at night she prayed according to the blessed rule, which seems to be of a Divean type, including several kathisma .

She lived for quite a long time, contrary to medical forecasts. She helped a lot with the Hebron compound in the Holy Land, picked up and sent there icons, utensils, souvenirs for the church and for sale with the help of services in the Danilov Monastery. Then, after unification with the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, Vladyka Mark (Arndt), Archbishop of Berlin and Germany, who visited the monastery at Mamvrian Oak, said that the Church Abroad could not create such a splendor ...

She took a tonsure with the name of Nectarius in honor of the Monk Nectarius of Optina, and then she was tonsured in a schema with the same name, but already in honor of Saint Nectarius of Aegina, who patronizes cancerous patients.

Once, when the disease had already worsened, she called me asking me to come and support her. I planned to go next Thursday, but I realized that I couldn’t postpone it, and I went the next morning, on Monday.

When I arrived and saw her, I no longer knew whether to read the departmental or cathedral.

He began the unification. As soon as I completed the first anointing, her carotid artery twitched, and she, as if waiting for this anointing, peacefully departed.

I had to read the follow-up on the outcome of the soul from the body.

She died on the day of the celebration of the icon of the Mother of God "Unexpected Joy." On the same day - the memory of the heavenly patroness of her late mother - nun Anna ...

Mother Nectarius herself was an incredibly delicate sensitive person.

Usually, when caring for the sick, one has to endure mutual annoyances: the one who cares for the seriously ill must have a hard time, and the patient must suffer the negative aspects of the character of the nurse - who is without sin?

But in the case of the nun Nectaria was not so. Her extraordinary sensitivity and angelic patience prompted her with such words and actions that never caused displeasure or frustration at the person she was caring for. For she had no thoughts of her own convenience and the facilitation of her work. She was exclusively occupied with the suffering and inconvenience of the patient.

I must say that even before her cancer, she had the experience of caring for one outstanding patient, from whom she was lucky to draw a lot of very valuable in the treasury of her spiritual experience. We are talking about the famous Caucasian wilderness hieromonk Gabriel, who was blessed to work in the mountains of Abkhazia by father Cyril (Pavlov). About him - the book "On the border with Heaven."

He settled high in the mountains, it seemed, finally, hopelessly and, as befits a hermit, until his death. And he came down from the mountains only because his cell-mate, going to visit his parents in Moscow, got into the police for parasitism. And in order to rescue his assistant, father Gabriel took this selfless journey. However, there is no silver lining.Father Vladimir Shibaev took advantage of this circumstance and blessed his spiritual children to draw spiritual wisdom in communion with Father Gabriel. And everyone who was lucky to communicate with him unanimously remembers him as an outstanding spiritual mentor, from whom they received great spiritual benefit. Among them was now the Dushanbe bishop Pitirim (Cottage cheese). You can meet his interesting memories on the Internet.

Remained an amazing unique tape recording of the words of Father Gabriel about desertification.

Mother Nectaria, at that time still Nadezhda Maximova, was lucky then most of all. For she was granted the right to abide with her father Gabriel, accompanying him on all near and long trips. This was due to the fact that he, like many real monks, suffered from ailments caused by rather severe asceticism. That is, even then she showed a talent for wonderful patient care, without annoying them at all, remaining useful and invisible. And father Gabriel never let her go.

Suffering from cancer, how much Mother Nectaria worked hard, caring for other seriously ill patients!

Already during the period of her cancer, how much she managed to work hard, caring for other seriously ill patients! Nothing negative came from her, she was so able to reconcile over the years of her illness that her soul had already forgotten the trajectories of serious sin. This cross of the disease was truly saving for her.

At the arrival of the Protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Akulovo, a parishioner Lydia also somehow fell ill with us: the doctors diagnosed cancer of the stomach. But she was blessed instead of surgery to take monastic tonsure and regularly sing on the choir. Together with her husband, they became a monk, he became a monk Peter, she - a nun Fevroniya. Soon the monk Peter took the priesthood and became hieromonk Peter.

And the nun Fevronia, the former Lydia, lived for many, many more years, undergoing, however, the painful symptoms of the disease, but without leaving a clerical obedience. Of course, having given such a blessing, the fathers of the Intercession Church in Akulovo prayed for her. She died, prayerfully strengthened, cleansed by the patience of work and illness, and thus prepared for the transition to eternity, already very old only recently.

It is blessed to someone to be treated by doctors, to someone - only to the chief Physician

The blessings of not having surgery are given by those priests who have a very strong prayer. In general, there is a classic position in the ancient book of Saints Barsanuphius and John the Prophet from the monastery of St. Seridus: they advised one to be treated by doctors, the other - only at the head Physician.

In my time, the operation saved my life myself.

I had a diverticulum of the esophagus that blocked the access of water and food to the stomach. In addition, part of the rotting food, deprived of the opportunity to enter the stomach, instead entered the trachea, and this caused pneumonia with pleurisy.

This involuntary starvation, aggravated by the same involuntary thirst, continued almost throughout Lent. Thanks to the disease, the post turned out to be real. As a result, I became like the prisoners of Buchenwald - one skin and bones.

At the Patriarchal Hospital of St. Alexis, I was prescribed an operation three times and each time I did not dare to perform it and canceled it. “Too close to the focus of the disease are vital organs - the heart, lungs,” they explained to me. Therefore, in addition to theoretical knowledge, the surgeon needed special skill and experience in carrying out this particular operation.

Father Vladimir Shibaev, who blessed Mother Nectarius to leave me, instructed her to approach the head of the surgical department with the question: “To what point in the world should Father Vissarion be brought (the name given to me when tonsuring the mantle) so that he can have a successful operation?” The manager replied that a better specialist than academician Chernousov, an employee of the Institute of Surgery at Pirogovka,not to be found all over the globe. Soon after three cancellations of the operation, I was discharged from the hospital and escorted with sad eyes, like a dead man.

The monastery contacted academician Chernousov, Alexander Fedorovich agreed to operate me for free.

I must say that during my illness I enlisted in advance the blessing of Father Valerian Krechetov about tonsure in the schema. And the moment of such a tonsure through mother Nectaria was prompted to me by father Vladimir Shibaev. In his opinion, shearing in a schema should have happened before I went to surgery.

I obeyed and filed a petition addressed to the governor of the Donskoy monastery, Archimandrite Agafodor (Markevich). Soon a response was received by Bishop Arseniy Istrinsky with a positive resolution of His Holiness Patriarch Alexy II. Father Agathodor and his brotherhood tonsured me privately. At the same time, the name Valentin given at birth and baptism was returned to me. But not in memory of the Asia Minor martyr-warrior, but in honor of the Russian new martyr Valentin Kornienko, who suffered just on the day of my birth (December 2, according to the new style) two years after my birth. On the same day, the memory of the recently glorified St. Philaret (Drozdov) was attributed to it.

The day after tonsure, a basin of pus came out of the throat

The day after tonsure, a basin of pus came out of the throat, which for a long time could not be expectorated, since the obstruction of the esophagus did not allow expectorant drugs to reach the stomach.

After that, there was pain in the lungs. When they brought me to the Institute of Surgery, it was there that they found, in addition to the diverticulum, pneumonia with pleurisy.

At first, Alexander Fedorovich was invigorated and encouraged me, he tried to feed me with a special probe. But pneumonia with pleurisy, to which was also added a fracture of several ribs, which I hit as a result of falling on the corner of the stool, nullified all these efforts to strengthen my flesh. She stubbornly resisted this, and there were no proteins in the blood.

The eyes of Alexander Fedorovich Chernousov became sadder and in the end they began to look at me just like the eyes of the doctors who accompanied me when I was discharged from the hospital of St. Alexis.

He went to Belgrade to give some lecture, and there it dawned on him during the lecture - he realized that he had to urgently fly to Moscow and operate on Father Valentin amid complete exhaustion. A plan for such an operation had already arisen in his head.

Upon arrival in Moscow, he immediately took from me a receipt of consent to this operation. It should have been performed under general anesthesia, and Alexander Fedorovich explained to me that my main task is to use all efforts to start breathing as soon as I wake up from anesthesia.

Father Valerian Krechetov, having arrived at the hospital on the eve of the operation, confessed me and took communion. And on the very day of the operation, to the surprise of Father Valerian, he had a namesake, so that the whole clergy council, during the operation, gathered at the altar of the shark’s church in order to serve the Liturgy, also prayed for its successful completion.

I must say that Alexander Fedorovich, arriving at the hospital, always reads two kathismas before the beginning of the working day and does not begin any operation without praying. He even has a special prayer before the surgical operation that Father Valerian gave him when he at one time saw in the shark temple of the Protection of the Virgin. Perhaps this is a prayer compiled by Saint Luke (Voino-Yasenetsky) and distributed by one of his students, who for this was subjected to repression by the MGB.

During long operations at critical moments, he reads a prayer - and his mind clears up, forces appear

Alexander Fedorovich told me that if the operation has already been going on for about five hours and you are already ceasing to think from extreme stress, the patient’s body is opened, and what to do next is completely incomprehensible, he again reads this prayer of surgical action. As a result, new forces appear, the brains wonderfully clear, and again it becomes clear what needs to be done next.

So, waking up from anesthesia, I immediately remembered his admonition: to immediately begin to breathe myself (before that I had been connected to the lung ventilation apparatus). After some effort, I succeeded.

The operation was successful, and Alexander Fedorovich told the staff of the intensive care unit that I did not need artificial nutrition that was usual for these cases and was already able to take food on my own, in the usual way. He immediately ordered to send me from intensive care to the ward with the words: "One-time meals - from dawn to dawn" - so as to quickly overcome my excessive exhaustion.

Why pray?

Thoughts about medical manipulations spoil the mood, prevent sleep, and deprive appetite. Even the fastest and least traumatic operations portend a load on all systems, and especially on the mental one.

“God rules the doctor’s hand” was said in giving and prayers and people unshakably believe in this and believed. Anyone lying down under a knife does not exclude the idea that something will go wrong and allows the tiniest spark of doubt about the medical result. To warn, hope and believe in good, people turn to God for help.

Doctors are not omnipotent and often the outcome depends on an absurd accident. The reaction of the body can be different to anesthesia, which is regarded as temporary death. The appeal to the Almighty asks and wishes for help on his part.

Orthodox stories contain a large number of stories about how to pray to saints and God correctly, whether mercy depends on sinfulness and righteousness, and whether prayers have helped those who firmly believe.

The city of Krasnodar registered one case. A saint came to a patient with a fractured collarbone, whom they doubted to operate in connection with vital signs (could not survive the intervention). He was kind and instilled faith in the patient, giving him a solution from a spoon and sentencing "Everything will be fine."

After that, the old man boldly went to the operating room and perfectly transferred all the actions that were carried out. A few days later, upon seeing the icon, the man recognized his predictor. It was Panteleimon the Healer. Even in his time, when he was a doctor, he turned to God before every difficult choice and action, and doubt.

God gave him the powers of healing and resurrection.

You need not worry, but concentrate and turn to Panteleimon for health. Akathists usually read seriously and intently. Then they gather their thoughts together and in their own words make a request to survive their day and give many more years of life, glorifying God.

Saint Luke of Crimea is seen on many icons. His installations and treatment methods are still used. He performed many successful operations during the war and revolutionary manipulations.

Even at the end of his life, already a bishop, he did not leave the medical business. After death, the followers turning to Luka received sudden help from above, the help of doctors was not required, and surgical incisions were not performed.

The barbarian great martyr with a cup in her hands helped patients with various surgical pathologies. Without communion and confession, they ask Varvara to participate in the introduction of anesthesia, so that he passes favorably and does not perpetuate death.

Relatives worried about their loved one also turn to saints. With their requests, they increase the health and vitality of the patient. If a group of people turns to God, then prayer gains great faith and personifies well-being.The prayer of detention can be read not only for oneself, but also for another person, especially an ill person.

It is important to go to the church church, put a candle for health and pray. Prayer houses have no less faith and the appeal to their icons ends with success. If the operation ended well, which is more likely, you need to gratefully respond, read our Father and ask for a speedy recovery and an excellent prognosis in the future.

It’s best to take a small icon to the hospital, put it under the pillow or on the bedside table, on the windowsill. Already in the preoperative preparation, the words “Lord have mercy” must be repeated and the Lord God will do this.

Upon successful completion and being in the clinic all subsequent days you need to ask for an early amendment. Of particular importance are older people. The risk of cutting off life is great, as health is depleted over many years. Should they ask sincerely and truthfully for help, repent of their errors and God will have mercy.

Many saints can pray. The seven youths of Ephesus, the holy righteous Lazarus, also fulfill the wishes of believers. As a sign of respect and gratitude, a prayer service is ordered at the church. Thank God, doctors and saints for their help.

God is the doctor of the human body and soul and it is better not to find him. God's treatment always corresponds to the severity of the disease. Gratitude is brought to him in any case. He is the only selflessly helps and does good. Believe and give you back!

A prayer that is uttered before the operation (including patrimonial prayer) is considered a miracle of creation. After pronouncing all bad emotions go away, the soul and heart overflow with calm and peace, the hope for the best settles in the heart.

Praying to God before a successful outcome

Lord of the Almighty, the holy King, punish and do not put to death, confirm the inferior and raise the overthrown, bodily people to correct sorrows, pray to you, our God, your servant (name), who is weak, visit your mercy. Forgive him any sin, free and involuntary.

She, Lord, have granted Your medical strength from heaven, if you control the mind and the hand of your servant, healer (name), and create the necessary surgery safely, as if the bodily ailment of your servant (name) is completely healed, and any invasion of the hostile will drive him away .

Raise him from the bed of the sickly, and grant him health, soul and body, who is charitable and does Thy will.

Yours is there, it’s a hedgehog to save us, our God, and we are glorifying you, the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and ever and ever and ever. Amen.

Prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary for a successful operation

May God grant us peace and health, and enlighten us with heart and mind, so that we may be saved, and bless us, Your sinful servants, the Kingdom of Your Son, Christ our God: as if His power is blessed with the Father and His Most Holy Spirit.

Prayer after surgery

O Lord, our Creator, I ask for your help, grant the complete recovery of God's servant (name), washing her blood with her rays. Only with Your help will healing come to her. By miraculous power, touch her, bless all her ways to the long-awaited salvation, healing, and recovery.

Give her body health, her soul - blessed ease, her heart - divine Your balm. The pain will forever recede and the forces will return to it, all wounds will heal and your holy help will come. Your rays from the blue Heavens will reach her, give her strong protection, bless them to get rid of her diseases, strengthen her faith.

May my Lord hear these words. Glory to you. Amen.

Prayer for mom’s operation

Everything about religion and faith is a “prayer during mom’s operation” with a detailed description and photographs.

Ask any person what prayer is, and everyone, without really thinking, will answer that this is an appeal to God, to the Higher Forces with a request for help in difficult times.Difficult moments in human life are diseases, especially those associated with surgical intervention.

And this is understandable: a normal person is always scared when he is at least temporarily “turned off” from life through anesthesia. No, no, and the thought creeps in: what if the anesthesiologist is mistaken? What if I don’t wake up? Is the surgeon experienced enough? Life shows that in such situations even the most inveterate skeptics often begin to pray. And what kind of prayer to read during the operation?

Which saints should I contact?

It is traditionally believed that intercessors for the sick - martyrs-healers:

  • Panteleimon.
  • His teacher Yermolai.
  • Miracle workers Cosma and Damian.
  • Cyrus and John.
  • Sacred literally at the end of the last century St. Luka Crimean, who during his life was both an operating surgeon and a bishop.
  • If the operation is done to the child or mother is best to contact Mother of God.
  • They turn to other saints, who are used to praying in all cases of life and to whom the soul is especially situated, St. Nicholas the Miracle Worker, Blessed Matrona of Moscow, St. Spiridon of Trimythous, martyr Tryphon, Archangel Raphael.

It is very useful to read them akathists.

However, in any case, we must remember that the saints of God do not have "specialization": that, they say, is “responsible” for that, that is for it. Such they appear in the folk tradition.

Saints are only mediators in transmitting our worldly petitions to the Lord Almighty: we offer our prayers to them, and they intercede for those who pray before Heavenly Father, in this case they ask Him for healing. Therefore, it is most logical to ask the Savior for this.

How to pray?

It is easiest to give recommendations about prayers before the upcoming operation. A man is preparing for a responsible event. He needs to visit a church, confess and partake, forgive the offenders.

This is important not only to the very future patient in the sense of his peace of mind, but also to the guardian angel who cares for him. - He also prays for health, and for those who do not hold a stone in his bosom, praying is much easier.

Believers still usually take a blessing from a priest so that the operation is successful and also ask to pray for their recovery.

In preparation for coming to the hospital, it’s nice to order a magpie about health for the patient. This can be done on the eve of the sick person himself and one of his relatives. Many monasteries read the Indestructible Psalter, and this prayer for health can also be ordered. Both are served for forty days, so it will capture both the time of the operation itself and the period after it.

Having entered the hospital, on the eve of the operation, before going to bed, reading the evening rule, one must enter into it a prayer for the operating surgeon and all the medical staff who will be involved in the process. Morning - meet reading the morning rule and pray to the operating table.

Appeal to the great healers

When there are health problems at home or with relatives, first of all, people turn to Saint Panteleimon.

Prayer to the Holy Great Martyr Panteleimon during surgery:

Oh, the great saint of Christ, passionate and physician the merciful Panteleimone! Have mercy on me, a sinful slave, hear my moaning and crying, please the heavenly, supreme Doctor of souls and the bodies of our Christ our God, may he give me healing from an ailment that is oppressive.

Accept the unworthy prayer of sinners more than all men. Visit me with a gracious visit.

Do not be abhorred by my sinful ulcers, anoint them with the oil of your mercy and heal me, sober to my soul and body, the rest of my days, the grace of God, I can spend in repentance and pleasing to God, and I will be honored to accept the good end of my life.

Her servant of God! Pray for Christ God, and by your intercession grant health to my body and the salvation of my soul. Amen.

Prayer Luka Krymsky about health during surgery:

As a bright and sparkling star, you illuminate our path with your virtues. Your angelic soul, your dignity, we pray to you. The godless persecuted you, the suffering brought you down.

Your faith was unshakable; you did not deprive the afflicted of help and caress. Your medical wisdom entered the houses with healing. We bow before your face, bend your knees before your relics, sing our body and spirit. Praise your deeds.

We pray to grant us healing, to strengthen our health. Amen.

What prayer to read?

If surgery is not under general anesthesia. You can read all the famous prayers, you can turn to specific saints with a request for a successful outcome of the operation, you can express your prayer in your own words - with faith and hope.

Learn by heart prayer for help during surgery:

Lord of the Almighty, Holy King, punish and do not put to death, affirm the falling, and raise up the overthrown, bodily people to correct the sorrows, pray to you, our God, thy servant (name) will be weak and merciful to you, forgive all sin. She, O Lord, have granted Your medical strength from heaven, if you control the mind and hand of Your servant healer (name), and he will safely perform the necessary surgery, as if the bodily ailment of your ill servant (name) is completely healed, and any invasion of the hostile will drive him away. . Raise him from his sickly bed and grant him health in the soul and body of Your church, pleasing and doing Your will. But yours is there, a hedgehog of mercy and salvation, our God, and we are glorifying you, the Father and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, now and forever, and forever and ever. Amen.

If the operation is to be performed using general anesthesia, it is recommended to read a short and very effective Jesus prayer literally before diving into narcotic sleep: “Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, have mercy on me, the sinner!”, or just repeat: "Lord have mercy! God bless! ”, or contact the Guardian Angel.

Do not be shy, before you lie down on the operating table, cross yourself and cross your operating bed.

Of great importance is the prayer of loved ones for the sick person who is undergoing surgery. As a rule, her time is known, so it will not be superfluous to put a candle on health at this hour, if there is a service in the church, order a prayer service.

Strong is considered general prayer for an agreement on the successful outcome of the operation, which several close people can read at the appointed time:

Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, thou art thou wilt clean thy mouth: “Amen I say to you, as two of you confer on the earth of every thing, but as soon as you ask, you will have from my Father, the same in heaven: where are two or three have gathered in My name, that is Az in their midst. ”

Your words, Lord, are merciless, Your mercy is unprofitable, and Your love of man has no end. For this reason we pray to Thee: grant us, Thy servants (names), who have agreed to ask thee (request), for the fulfillment of our petition. But both are not just like we want, but like You. Thy will be done forever.

Any prayer requires special attention and concentration. The morning and evening prayer rules are read before the icons, if possible, aloud, if not, silently.

How to read them in the hospital, the situation will tell you, the main thing is that they are read thoughtfully, without irritation, in a calm mood.

If the roommates don’t mind, read the prayers out loud - it will be to their benefit.

  • Prayer, both for oneself and for a loved one must be extremely sincere and felt, and her every word is balanced and meaningful.
  • Praying during the operation focuses on the conversation with the saintwhom he addresses, all his thoughts are with him.
  • Prayer to the saint should not be one-time. Many recommend reading the chosen prayer 40 times.Often people read it constantly - before entering into a deep narcotic sleep.
  • When preparing for surgery, you need to understand that Diseases do not comprehend us “for something”, but for “something”: it means that the Lord considers it necessary to reason us in this way, to teach a lesson in patience and humility. And therefore this lesson must be accepted, paradoxically as it may seem, with gratitude and faith in the mercy of God. A simple and short “formula” “Thy will be done” will help to take the situation with dignity.
  • In the hours and minutes before the operation, being in a prayerful mood, in no case should you recall insults, scold, blame and even less curse anyone, even suspecting him of malice. Reconciliation with offenders is a direct path to recovery.
  • Serious and thoughtful attitude to spoken words of prayer. That is why it is necessary to distinguish true prayer from conspiracies, spells that turn the patient more likely to pagan examples of folklore.
  • Definitions and comparisons are often used in conspiracies, which have nothing to do with the true faith, and sometimes they contradict the essence of the request. So, in one of them, in an appeal to Jesus Christ it says: "Jesus, just as you were taken off the cross, so take me off the operating table." The ambiguity of the phrase is obvious, and yet many, without thinking, pronounce it that way.
  • Prayer suggests that He who asks sincerely repents of his sinsof which many have accumulated over life.

It seemed to you that the request was not fulfilled to the extent that you would like? This, too, is not for us, mere mortals to judge, but faith cannot be definitely lost.

Prayer fixes the connection of the Almighty with human souls.

Of course, prayer does not work instantly, as an anesthetic, but it helps to create a mood of faith and trust in the Lord God and healers working in His glory.

Unfortunately, in recent years, people have often begun to suffer from various diseases. It is difficult to say exactly what it is connected with, it is possible that ecology influences such a phenomenon, perhaps a weak faith in God. Be that as it may, the frequency of surgical interventions during treatment is increasing.

Of course, not one doctor will give you a one hundred percent guarantee. But in order for the operation to succeed and actually help, the clergy recommend that the prayer be read during the operation of the close person Matrona of Moscow. By such an appeal you are guaranteed to enlist the support of a saint.

The main thing is to ask with strong faith in the soul.

Petition before surgery

In the Orthodox faith, it is customary in the case of illness or troubles of a loved one about his well-being and health asking the saints and the Almighty not only him alone, but also his relatives. In such cases, it is even recommended to order special prayers in temples. Also, prayer will have double power if it is read by a group of people at the same time.

After all, when a prayer is said before an operation to Matron or before an operation of a loved one, it gains incredible strength, which increases the chances of a successful outcome of surgery several times. In addition to reading the petition, do not forget to visit the church. Be sure to put a candle on health before the image of the saint. Read the prayer “Our Father” first, and then turn directly to the saint for help.

If you do not have the opportunity to visit the church, then go to the icon shop, get the image of a saint and read a prayer in a place convenient for you.

What prayer to read when an operation is performed on a loved one?

It can be seen that you are very worried about your loved ones, this is great. As for prayer, unfortunately people forgot what it really is. Today, it is mainly treated as a spell (a special set of words), and for each case there is a prayer - a spell.

Initially, prayer is conversion, fellowship with God! As you communicate with a loved one, also communicate with God.This is real prayer. Tell God about what you are experiencing, about the operation to a loved one, about what you are afraid of, do not hesitate to ask God for strength and wisdom. Pour out your heart to Him.

Such prayers are pleasing to God. He also likes that people turn to Him by name through or in the name of Jesus Christ, showing their faith in his atoning sacrifice. The name of God himself is Jehovah or Yahweh. According to scripture, Jehovah did not instruct anyone to listen to prayers. He reserved this right.

Therefore, you need to pray only to Him - the Most High God!

It is better to turn to the great martyr and healer Panteleimon, as far as I know (in general, when a person is sick). I haven’t seen a special prayer for the operation (although I have been going to the temple for a long time).

You can turn to God with brief prayers: “Lord, help. " "Lord have mercy!"

And here is a prayer to that saint, which I mentioned above:

Since there are no prayers for such a specific case as an operation, you can pray in any words. Prayer is a conversation with God, in fact, the exact text is not so important, the main thing is positive energy, which will protect the patient.

You can pray to any holy doctors and healers, for example, the cosmos and Damian, the unmarried doctors, St. Seraphim of Sarov, Panteleimon the healer. It is better for this case to have in front of you the corresponding image, icon.

When an operation is performed to your loved one, then try not to read any special prayers, but in your own words to turn to the Lord God, pouring out your feelings, fears and wishes to Him. And do not forget to say at the end of the prayer: “Thy will be done on everything.” God will certainly hear sincere prayer from the heart, no worse than a memorized prayer.

You can pray in your own words. You can ask God to give the relative strength to cope, the doctor did his job well and that the postoperative period would be without complications. And even before the operation itself, you can ask what an intelligent doctor would do, ask calmness for you and your relative.

You can pray in your own words, the main thing is from the heart, because prayer is a conversation with God, so it’s not necessary with just learned words

Prayer during the operation of relatives

Miraculous words: prayer during the operation of relatives in a full description from all the sources we found.

Modern medicine uses high-tech equipment for operations today and uses innovative technologies. This greatly speeds up the recovery process and makes operations so easy that a person is able to stand on his feet just a few hours after surgery.

But despite this, any operation is a very exciting event, so in order to calm down and properly tune believers before any surgical intervention, even the simplest from the point of view of medicine, they always read special prayers.

Who is Saint Luke of Crimea

Saint Luke is God's saint, very famous in the church world. This man lived in the time of Jesus and was his faithful disciple. Even in those days, St. Luke considered the treatment of sick people his initial task. He was a very competent doctor and treated many different diseases. As a talented person, he managed to combine the roles of a healer and a preacher of the faith of Christ.

During his life, he conducted complex operations and always fought for the life of a person, while there was the slightest hope. People said that Luke has hands from God. He conducted surprisingly valuable medical research, the results of which were simply amazing and have been useful in medical practice for many generations.

But it so happened that after some time he nevertheless put the church world in first place and took tonsure. Therefore, he is better known as an apostle and evangelist. But the medical past of St. Luke was not forgotten by people.And today, Christians pray to him in order to receive his support during the operation and will recover faster after it.

Why do people turn to him during treatment with prayers

The power of prayer to St. Luke is proven. There is much evidence that she helped to cure terrible diseases.

Prayer to St. Luke strengthens a person’s faith that everything is in God's hands. This means that the patient who is on treatment finds peace of mind. it helps to successfully fight the disease.

Any disease does not arise just like that, it is the punishment of the Lord. Therefore, prayer to St. Luke allows you to receive forgiveness from the Lord for your own sins. Therefore, the beneficial periods of recovery for each person can be individual. The main thing is to believe that the Saint hears you and will certainly help you.

When to Pray to Saint Luke

Rev. Luke in Orthodoxy is a very revered saint. It is believed that he always hears the request of a believer and always responds to it.

You can ask for the following:

  • On improving the health of your loved ones,
  • On the healing and recovery of children,
  • On the successful conception of a child and the birth of his strong and healthy,
  • About healing from serious fatal diseases, in particular from cancer.

You can pray to Saint Luke before going to the doctor, especially to the surgeon. If a woman prays to the Saint for a safe pregnancy, then this must be done before the icon. More effective is the prayer read in the temple.

The interpretation of miraculous prayer

In the miraculous prayer to St. Luke, his healing power and abilities are affirmed. A praying person says that he kneels before the cancer in which the relics of the Saint are located. He sincerely hopes that his requests will be heard and not rejected. In order to increase the power of prayer, it contains recognition of the merits of the Saint during his earthly life.

The prayer contains a petition for strengthening the faith of the worshiper. This means that a person understands that his illness is associated with any of his sins. He asks for repentance, since all sins were committed due to his unreason.

The prayer is saturated with the faith of the prayer for the intercession of St. Luke before God. And for the future, a request is made to help us not turn from the true path and give strength to resist all sinful temptations.

The power of prayer before surgery

The Orthodox know a lot of stories about how believers who correctly turn to God before the operation of a loved one's child or themselves, relying on his mercy, gained salvation through prayer. One of these stories is the story of a resident of the city of Krasnodar, where a man with a broken collarbone had to lie on the operating table, knowing that, taking into account critical vital indicators, he might not survive this intervention.

In a dream, the patient saw a saint who, with the words: “Everything will be fine,” gave him an unusual solution to sip from a spoon. This dream impressed the victim so much that all his doubts about whether to agree to the operation were dispelled in an instant.

As a result, the patient left the operating room alive, in good health. And only after some time, visiting the church, the icon was rescued by the rescued person, whose face seemed familiar to him. In it, the man recognized the very saint, Panteleimon the Healer, who in a dream convinced him that he was not in danger from surgical intervention.

Panteleimon the Healer himself healed during his life, and he succeeded in this, it is worth saying, thanks to the help of God, well. The Lord granted his faithful son the gift of healing and resurrection. Now in the Church of the saint it is customary to call the Heavenly Healer.

How to pray before surgery

Before you go to the hospital, it is recommended to go to the temple, where before the lit candle for health you need to read a prayer.If for some reason you cannot pray in the church, contact the One Creator before the operation near the home iconostasis. The clergy recall that in prayer it is not the place where it is read that matters, but the faith of the Christian, with whom he appeals to Heaven. Once on the operating table, repeat to yourself three times, "Lord have mercy." With these words, it is recommended to undergo preoperative preparation.

We must not forget about the prayer book after surgery. After the operation, if everything went well, read “Our Father” or another prayer, which can be completed with words of gratitude addressed to God, as well as a request for an early restoration and a favorable prognosis in the future. Do not forget to repent of your guided and unknown sins. Your words will be heard, and if the will of the Lord will do so, he will have mercy.

Keep a small icon next to the hospital bed. Small, for example, can be completely put under the pillow. Already in the preoperative preparation, the words “Lord have mercy” must be repeated, and the Lord God will do this.

Nicholas the Wonderworker pray before surgery

Very often, before the operation, they ask for a successful outcome to St. Nicholas the Wonderworker. It should be remembered that such a prayer must be offered in front of the icon.

The effectiveness of this prayer is also determined by the fact that this Holy One worked miracles during his life and healed the sick.

In addition to prayer addresses to the Lord, His Son, Saints, the sick, before lying on the operating table, can ask for divine powers for help with the help of an akathist.

Kondak 2

This Kondak can often be heard during the liturgy in the temple. Like others, he is called, first of all, to glorify our Savior, and also to remind the laity of the beauty of the earthly world created by the Lord.

And so that this beauty could be able to enjoy for many years to come, all the patients resort to reading this prayer, whose recovery is impossible without surgical intervention.

Ikos 2

This short prayer reminds the Orthodox that the life God has given us is a holiday enchanting paradise, for all the charms of which we need to thank the Creator One every day.

So many people take for granted, which is one of the many mistakes of any layman. You can repent for this and once again glorify the Lord before the operation by reading this particular Ikos.

Kondak 3

The life-giving God created all that is beautiful on earth that we, again, only thanks to the joy of contemplation granted to us, can we enjoy every day.

Ikos 3

Calling to heaven in difficult times, people, including the sick, often forget about the main thing - the need to thank the One Creator for all that he gave to the laity. Not everyone can find the right words for this.

The most difficult thing is for those whose consciousness is occupied with thoughts about the upcoming operation, which, regardless of human health, one way or another, involves a big risk. It is in such cases that the church eulogies come to the rescue.

Kondak 4

Every Orthodox knows that effective prayer is the key to salvation, an integral pious tradition of the Christian world. The fourth Kondak, dedicated to the life-giving Word of God, its grace, which comes to all who with a pure heart and strong faith, turns to their Creator, also recalls this.

The text of this Ikos can be read at home, in the church, at the liturgy and just before the holy images, as well as directly in the hospital.

Kondak 6

Our Creator is the One omnipotent, which is especially important to remember for every seriously ill person who seeks salvation in operation. Whatever the surgery, it always causes anxiety and anxiety in a person. And only prayer can console the heart of the laity.

This version of the appeal to the Lord is included in the laudatory akathist, who is recommended to read along with other prayer books during preoperative preparation.

Ikos 6

Communion is the path to salvation for every Christian. Turning to the Lord, before asking him for something, you need to remind yourself of all the blessings that He has given to his children.

It is difficult to give thanks for all the gifts of God in your own words, when the heart aches from fear and doubt before the operation. Then the church hymn comes to the rescue, in which the whole grace of the love of the Almighty, his mercy is best described.

Kondak 7

Before going to the operating table, the believer must not only repent and ask the Father for his protection and help, but also thank him for all that He has been given.

Kondak 8

For every patient, the eighth Kondak is of particular value, because it describes the salvation of the suffering person through faith. These lines contain a reminder of the mercy of the Almighty, which comes to a person suddenly, when he, it would seem, has already lost hope of healing, plunged into the darkness of his mental and physical torment, trials.

This prayer makes one believe that the pure soul of the one who lives in Christ is surely waiting for a miracle granted by our omnipotent Father.

Ikos 8

Part of the abundance of benefits that the Lord sends the layman, he takes for granted, which can not be done. Do not forget, trusting in God, to thank him for protection day and night, for his love and for the salvation granted to all mankind.

When it is difficult to express this gratitude before the operation in your own words, you can take advantage of the eighth Ikos, part of the laudatory akathist who read, like prayer, seriously, pondering each word.

Kondak 9

Each church holiday reminds us of the omnipotence of the Lord, but his immense love must always be remembered, which is discussed in the 9th laudatory text of the church song. This prayer is well known to all who regularly visit Orthodox churches in the liturgy.
