Prayer Points – July 5
Prayer Points – July 5
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 

I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!
(Mark 9:24) 
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 the coming days up to four million vaccine doses are due to arrive from China. Pray that the huge logistical task of storing, distributing and administering these will be done efficiently and fairly. Until a large proportion of the population are vaccinated there is always likely to be another wave of infection.
  • Our hospitals have been on the front line fighting infection in their communities. All staff have received both doses of vaccine yet in Tansen 68 of them have been infected at some point. This has spilled over to their family members as well. Your prayers for all staff have not just been appreciated, but also answered as all have recovered. Let us continue in faithful prayer for the work of our Hospitals.
  • Liv Wendel has just moved to Okhaldhunga Hospital as Clinical Educator and Social Service Advisor. Pray for her as she settles into a new area of Nepal and to new responsibilities.
  • Floods, landslide and destruction has been triggered in many parts of Nepal by heavy monsoon rains. Many hundreds of homes have been damaged or swept away, bringing both injury and death. Remember to pray for our staff when they must travel at this time of year, but pray especially for families who are suffering life changing loss in these days.
  • Continue to pray for the Staff Support Group who are now holding regular group meetings (online) with Cluster Teams. Pray that the advice and support offered will be relevant to those who are living under pressures far from home.
