Prayer Points – November 17
Prayer Points – November 17
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 

“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you”.
(Luke 6:27-28) 
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
  • Concern regarding the pandemic is continuing to rise rapidly. New infections are consistently rising by well over 1000 per day. The death toll stands at well over 1,200 and many of the hospitals are unable to provide full support for those who are seriously ill. We are now in the main holiday season of Tihar where large numbers of people traditionally travel around the country to be with family. Due to fear the travelling has been reduced, but still there is much concern that over the next two weeks there may be even greater spread of Corona virus. Please pray for the nation, our leaders, and all who work in medical services.
  • Please remember to pray for medical staff in Tansen and Okhaldhunga Hospitals. In particular remember the Hospital Leadership Teams led by Rachel Karrach (Tansen) and Yubraj Acharya (Okhaldhunga) respectively. They and their teams continue to carry great responsibility in the hospitals and the general community. Wisdom is needed.
  • Please pray for all our cluster staff. Due to the pandemic many of them have been unable to return safely to their families during this major holiday period. They are isolated and living far from home.
  • Please continue to pray for UMN’s Leadership and Incident Management Team. There are many issues to be addressed and negotiated through with the Government – this includes property ownership, General and Project Agreements, Hospital Agreements, Ex-Pat numbers and visas, and how UMN is viewed and valued in today’s Nepal. Each one of these are major matters.
  • Pray continually for the ongoing process of selecting UMN’s next Executive Director and new Board members.
