Prayer Points – August 10
Prayer Points – August 10
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 prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”
(James 5 v16) 
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 a positive outcome to UMN’s ongoing negotiations with the government over our Agreement renewals and the Thapathali property. These are important and live matters. 
  • Pray wisdom for the recruitment panel who meet in the next few days to appoint doctors for Okhaldhunga hospital. Pray that the best candidates will be chosen. Pray also for safety of the staff in the hospital and for those who are travelling frequently, as well as for the external auditing process in the hospital.
  • In Tansen as the hospital gets busier, pray for wisdom regarding decisions to improve screening and for our patient and staff safety, that we don’t miss identifying any COVID-19 patients. Please also pray for Dr. Rachel’s father so that his visa could be processed smoothly and quickly.
  • Pray for the health and safety of Kapilvastu field-based staff of partner organizations who have been extending their support to the people in need affected by the pandemic. Currently 63 COVID 19 cases are being treated in the district.
  • In Bajhang Cluster there is an Integrated Disaster Risk Programme (IDRP), a pilot project which must be completed by December 2020. It requires UMN to provide specific technical skills to the partner NGO, however due to travel restrictions, the cluster team is not able to provide this support to the partner organisation. Please pray that soon we could find safe ways of travel, not just in Bajhang, but everywhere.
