Prayer Points – June 7
Prayer Points – June 7
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 

We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy.
(Daniel 9:18) 
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 month of May there were over 4000 deaths due to Covid-19 in Nepal. This is the highest number of any month and may well be under reported. However there are some signs that this wave of the pandemic may have peaked. Please pray that this is correct and that with all the effort to protect people life will gradually and safely open up.
  • Our Cluster Teams have been very busy this last week procuring materials and then making journeys to distribute to front line health posts and staff. Oxygen supplies, Oximeters, PPE and sanitising solution will help keep staff and patients safe. Pray for our staff who are very busy under pressure and all the while needing to protect themselves.
  • Both our hospitals have been very busy dealing with Covid-19 patients. There have been deaths, but many more recoveries. Okhaldhunga Hospital expects to be under great pressure in the coming week as infection rates are continuing to climb there. Tansen is in need of a new oxygen compressor to ensure unbroken supply to patients. Please raise these matters in prayer.
  • Staff under pressure have been sharing some of their experiences of coping with pressures through sessions run by the Staff Support Group (SSG). This has been very much appreciated. Pray for the SSG and the work of encouraging good practice to maintain mental health, and for those who are finding life very difficult.
  • Pray for Khadak, AFO from Doti, as his mother passed away on Saturday due to Covid, his Sister in-law is still very sick in the hospital. Please pray for the comfort as they mourn and strength to go through the rituals and healing for the family. Praise God that Parsu has been discharged and he seems out of danger and recovering well.
  • Praise the lord that GA approval letter from Ministry of Women and Children (MoWC) has been finally forwarded to Social Welfare Council (SWC) and hope to sign it sometime this week.
  • Pray for Rabbi, as he has been diagnosed with a kidney stone in both kidneys and also suspected of appendicitis. Pray for him for the speedy recovery.
