Lord, we pray for Pat Pimm as he undergoes surgery today. We ask that as he puts himself into the care of doctors, that You would take him into Your care as well and oversee every aspect of this surgery. We ask that You would be with the doctors, nursing staff and others who will be caring for him today and in the days to come. We ask that the surgery would be a success and that every cancer cell would be contained and removed so that his recovery would be quick and without complications. We especially pray for Pat and ask that You would give him great peace during this time. Be near him and his wife and family. Surround them with Your love and grace.
We ask this in Jesus Name, Amen
