Prayer Points – May 6
Prayer Points – May 6
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 

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.”
(Colossians 4:2) 

Major Matters for Prayer
  • Today the country is waiting to hear whether or not the current lockdown will continue. This is day 44 and it may be that there will be some relaxing of restrictions on movement. A couple of days ago Dr. Les Dornan commented that it was almost like a “normal” day at Tansen. Over 200 patients purchased tickets to be seen in OPD. No one wants people to be sick, but we are thankful that more people in need of help are coming to be seen. Pray for this ‘normal’ work of serving the sick in our hospitals.
  • Continue to pray for the financial stability of the hospitals so they are able to respond to a major local outbreak. Thus far supporters have been most generous. The total collection for COVID fund from individuals and churches is approximately $149,000 (USD). In addition our Funding partner organizations have given $156,000 (USD).
  • Pray for the members of the Hospitals Leadership Team who meet tomorrow to consider budget matters. There will be vital decisions to be taken, and supporters will be informed in more detail of expected funding needs in the coming year.
  • UMN is rolling out a toll-free number for people in our working areas to give feedback on our work.  This plan has been underway for some time, and is more important than ever now that we have less face-to-face contact with community members.  Please pray for this feedback system to work well and improve our response to COVID-19.
  • Pray for many thousands of Nepalese migrant workers in the gulf, they are in difficult situations; some of them are Corona infected and many are without work and proper food and shelter. There is a major logistical challenge in helping these people and bringing them home.
