Prayer Points – August 31
Prayer Points – August 31
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 

“In my distress I called to the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears.”
(Psalm 18:6) 
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
  • In Tansen there are two asymptomatic COVID-19 positive patients in the isolation unit. Please pray they make a complete recovery.
  • Okhaldhunga Hospital’s outpatient department had to be shut down for three days last week because of a patient who began displaying coronavirus-like symptoms after coming into contact many of our staff.  Thank God, we received news this morning that the patient tested negative; but the disruption and fear from the incident have taken a toll.  Please pray for God’s peace and encouragement to all Okhaldhunga staff and the community around the hospital.
  • The pandemic continues to impact huge areas of the country – the Terai along the border with India and now the Kathmandu valley. Many areas are under strict lockdown again with all the added pressured which that brings. Pray for those who are struggling in these days.
  • Pray for our Cluster teams who would love to be back on the ground in their working areas. This is not possible at present and the delay is frustrating. Remember to pray for the mental strength of all our staff.
  • Your prayer support for the UMN Leadership team (Hospitals & Clusters) and Incident Management Team is always needed. Please remember Joel Hafvenstein in the pressures of leadership in these days.
