Prayer Points – March 30
Prayer Points – March 30
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 

Jesus knew the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love.
(John 13v1) 

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
  • Once again we ask your prayers for those in talks to finalise General and Project Agreements. The Social Welfare Council (SWC) and other Government Ministries are considering the contribution of UMN and other similar organisations in Nepal. Dhana Lama and others are asking that recognition be given to the valuable service offered to the poorest and most isolated in Nepal and that the Government agree to our five year plans.
  • Okhaldhunga Hospital has experienced a whole range of additional pressures arising directly from the pandemic and the precautions and fears associated. The Maternal Waiting Home had to be closed as had the TB Treatment ward due to the likelihood of spreading the Corona virus. The waiting home is being used as the Outpatients Dept to free other areas to become isolation areas. The result is there are increased home births with associated risks and also evidence of TB going unrecognised and untreated for too long. Practical issues such as these are added health problems on top of the pandemic. Let’s pray that ways will be found to overcome these issues. Remember all staff at both our hospitals
  • There is a growing expectation that Nepal will suffer a further wave of Covid-19 infections. Generally the population has been spared much and has become too relaxed. The annual festival of Holi is just days away and normally there are huge crowds and family celebrations. Currently India is experiencing increasing infection. Pray that this does not spread in Nepal.
  • Please continue to pray for all our Cluster Teams as they press forward with their projects and future planning.
  • In Mugu Cluster- Pray for the timely completion of ‘Drinking water project’ at Mugum Karmarong RM.
  • In Rukum, cluster team is conducting a cross project monitoring workshop and field visits. Parsu and Bina from MEAL team are facilitating the workshop, pray for the fruitful meeting and monitoring visits.
  • Congratulations to Suresh Pariyar and Jina Maharjan as they are blessed with baby girl on Monday. Pray for the good health of a mother and baby.
