Prayer Points – June 28
Prayer Points – June 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 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
(Philippians 4:6-7) 
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 work at strengthening our service in clusters please pray for all new initiatives. Especially remember three new staff joining to develop livelihood and health projects: Jyoti Sedhain, Livelihoods Project Manager and Echchha Kumari Pun Magar, Health Project Officer (both in Nawalparasi). Sanju Gautam. Health Project Manager, Kapilbastu.
  • All Cluster Team have been busy arranging relief and emergency medical responses to needy people. Team members were able to be ‘on the ground’ reaching out with resources and support. Pray for CTL’s and teams as they supply emergency medical materials to the district hospital, community hospital, health centre and corona hospitals.
  • It seems that currently the peak of infection may have passed, yet our teams are keeping a focus on a possible third wave due to the fact that vaccinations are not yet widespread. Pray for God’s wisdom “as all clusters teams are engaged with the District Disaster Management Committee, chaired by CDO, including the COVID Response and communicate, with the message and support for needed preparedness of the third wave COVID”.
  • As we continue to give thanks for the signing of the General Agreement, please pray in particular for those in the Social Welfare Council who have been sympathetic to UMN’s faith based approach to development work. May their voice be heard as we seek to formalise the detail and obtain our Project Agreements. In particular pray that prolonged blockages and hindrances will not be placed in our path.
