Prayer Points – February 15
Prayer Points – February 15
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 

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us – whatever we ask – we know
that we have what we asked of him
(1 John 5v14-15) 
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
  • Over the months we have been praying that the spread of Coronavirus will be reduced. While there remains a real problem, the situation is now improved to the extent that more of our normal activities are possible. We thank God for this and ask you to pray that we all will continue to be careful to follow all safety guidelines.
  • We are very aware that every other region in the world (though not every country) has seen a “second wave” of the virus after the first subsided.  Please pray that Nepal is spared, and for everyone who is responsible for contingency planning and preparedness for the possible next wave.
  • Quite a number of our Thapathali staff are currently travelling to clusters to help with developing project proposals. Pray safety in travel and help in developing plans and good relations with our partner organisations.
  • This week Ramesh Thing and Jiwan Rai will be leading three days (Mon – Wed) of training for Church leaders from Bajhang on the theme of ‘Transforming Masculinities’. Pray that this will result in the formation of small groups to actively nurture improved and equitable relationships in family life.
  • Over one million doses of vaccine have been sent to Nepal. Along with many others both of our hospitals have been active in a distribution programme. Between the two hospitals over 1000 doses have been given to staff from the hospitals, community health workers and female community health volunteers from nearby rural municipalities. Please pray for wider availability of the vaccine and for greater reduction in the spread of infection.
