Prayer Points – February 22
Prayer Points – February 22
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 

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
(1 Peter 2v9) 
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
  • We are very thankful to God that at this time the Corona virus rate of infection has reduced in Nepal. We are very aware that great care needs to be taken to prevent a further wave. Much more concerning is the fact that economic hardship and poverty are on the increase. Please pray for the hundreds of thousands who do not know where to turn for help. Some are trying to eke out a living in their villages while growing numbers are looking toward migrating once again. Pray for the country, for UMN and others who are trying to provide help.
  • Quite a number of staff members are currently travelling in the field to hold meetings with partners and communities. Pray safety in travel and effective meetings as they seek to gather information, ideas and hopes from the bottom up.
  • Please pray for all hospital staff who work hard to provide full medical services under very trying conditions. Remember the Hospital Leadership Teams in Tansen & Okhaldhunga, led by Rachel Karrach and Yubraj Acharya respectively. There are difficult decisions to be taken daily.
  • We have asked before and ask again – please remember to pray for the Leadership Team and especially for those involved in speaking with Government Officials regarding our proposals for General and Project Agreements.
