Prayer Points – April 12
Prayer Points – April 12
In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, UMN invites all people of prayer to set aside time daily to ask for God’s help in our work in Nepal. The time suggested for UMN staff is 3.00 pm. For our friends around the world, we ask that you join us either at the equivalent time in your country of 3 pm Nepal time, or whenever you are able. Many have found setting a daily alarm on their phone a useful reminder. 
Thank you for your fellowship in prayer.
Joel Hafvenstein 

The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him. The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.
(Lamentations 3v24) 
We encourage everyone who is praying for UMN not only to raise our requests but to listen to God on UMN’s behalf. Please take time to read this Bible verse slowly to yourself. Pause and ask God to speak through His Word. Then read it slowly again. Settle and calm your mind before you pray.
Major Matters for Prayer
  • Please pray for Sabu Tamang, Nawalparasi Cluster Team Leader. She was injured in an accident while travelling to Chitwan on Friday. She was discharged from hospital on Saturday and is recovering at home. Pray also for Ishwar KC, Project Manager Health who will be Acting CTL.
  • Last week there was an incidence of fake news being spread very publicly about UMN on social media. Misinformation causes confusion and negativity in the minds of some. Please pray for the Leadership Team who need wisdom in responding with truth and grace.
  • Rup Kumar BK (Cluster Team Leader In Kapilbastu) has already noticed that due to the circulation of Fake news in the media there is fear of mistreatment to our staff by other religious groups. Please pray that this will not hinder any aspect of our work.
  • On Monday UMN must say thank you and goodbye to nine of our staff, most who have worked with Dhading Disaster Relief since the earthquake in 2015. We are always sorry to see colleagues moving on. Please pray God’s help and guidance for all of them as they seek and take up new opportunities.
  • The rise of a further wave of Covid-19 has been very noticeable in India. There is great concern that this will now impact Nepal, so please continue to pray for all in UMN as we seek to continue our work and also set a good example of safe procedures in all we do.
