Prayer Points – July 19
Prayer Points – July 19
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 

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
(Romans 12:12) 
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
  • Last week we asked you to pray for the Rukum East team who would be receiving and delivering COVID-19 medical materials. Essential medical equipment like oxygen concentrators, multiparameter patient monitors, BiPAP, CPAP and reservoir bags were received and then carried out to the district hospitals and health centres of two Rural Municipalities. Give praise for this successful work and pray for the effective use of this equipment.
  • In Kapilvastu the team have provided a generator to two local health posts of Maya Devi and Yasodhara Rural Municipalities. This ensures power for times when electricity supply fails. They have also been able to supply Search and Rescue Materials to the District Disaster Management Committee to support the government’s flood preparedness efforts. Pray that these provisions will be well used, and also be a witness to UMN’s concern to practically support the poorest and most neglected people in the country.
  • Please continue to pray for our two UMN Hospitals in Tansen and Okhaldhunga. The leadership teams and all staff continue to need your prayers in the midst of pandemic and the daily pressures of offering a medical service to everyone.
  • The Staff Support Group continue to offer self-care sessions to all our UMN teams. Ask the Lord to help us “carry one another’s burdens” and genuinely be a support, especially to any staff who feel isolated and pressurised.
  • Pray for Peter Fleming for his successful surgery this week and for healing as well as full recovery for him.
  • Pray for wisdom for Nepali and Expatriate recruitment, which is in process.
