Prayer Points – May 31
Prayer Points – May 31
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 everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
(Philippians 4:6) 
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
  • Please pray for some of our colleagues who are ill with Covid-19. In particular Niki and Parsu are very much in need of healing and recovery.
  • Pray for our new medical doctors who will be working in Tansen – Paula MacFarlane and Rima Butler. They are preparing for life and work in Nepal at one of the most difficult times possible.
  • The Government has imposed a very strict lockdown especially in Kathmandu in the hope of breaking the chain of infection. Pray patience and protection for the population and especially for hospitals where it is almost impossible to meet the needs of those who are ill.
  • Our Staff Support Group have arranged sessions for all staff to help them share with each other the challenges and ways of coping with pressure in these days. Pray that any colleague who is struggling will receive the help they need.
  • We have heard reports of many Church leaders who have become ill with Covid-19 due to the fact that they have been in close contact with people in their communities who are in need. Pray healing and protection for these leaders.
  • Praise God that the first 39 oxygen concentrators UMN ordered as part of our COVID second wave response are now in country and on their way to UMN hospitals and clusters, with more to follow soon.
