Prayer Points – December 28
Prayer Points – December 28
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 

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
(Isaiah 43 v18-19) 
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
  • As we come to the end of a very difficult year and look ahead with hope to 2021 please pray for UMN as we work to bring “fullness of life to all”. If we are to continue we must finalise a General Agreement with the Government in the coming weeks. Visas for Ex Pats, future planning, projects and staffing are dependent upon reaching agreement with the Government. Please pray for all who are involved in presenting plans to officials. Pray that even in a time of political instability a way forward will be found.
  • Continue to pray for our hospitals. Week by week they serve their communities in the name of Jesus. There can be up to 3000 surgeries per year and also the same number of births. Please remember the many financial challenges in keeping this work going.
  • Pray for hospital staff who are working with COVID-19 patients. These staff must live apart from their families for weeks at a time. This is especially difficult for many at Christmas.
  • The pandemic has made life hard for many whose earnings and livelihood has been reduced. Pray for the work UMN is doing to give new skills in business and farming to families who are affected. Such new opportunities can be life changing for entire families. Again we ask for your prayers.
  • Please pray for the speedy recovery and healing as few of our staff have been contracted the COVId-19 infection.
