Prayer for a Friend Preparing for Surgery

We are with you right now as you prepare for the hospital.

Our image is that as each of us adds our hearts’ love for you,

we surround you with a white donut of light

that gets thicker and thicker with each wish, with each prayer.  

While you are preparing to enter anaesthetic, you are remembered.

We are holding a space for you and we are there as you wake up.

As you go home and have your first nap, we are guarding you, too.

It’s a guarding and honoring and accompaniment all at once.
