Prayer Points – November 2
Prayer Points – November 2
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 

Keep me safe, my God, for in you I take refuge. I say to the Lord, â€œYou are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.”
(Psalm 16v1-2) 
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
  • All across Nepal, people are returning from their villages after visiting family for the Dasain holidays.  It is very likely that Dasain travel will cause a major spike in coronavirus cases, at a time when Nepal’s major cities are already running out of ICU beds.  Pray for God’s mercy and for health facilities throughout the country.
  • Please pray for all the UMN staff who have been diagnosed as COVID-positive, for a rapid and full recovery for them and their family members.
  • Travel to and from Nepal remains highly restricted.  Pray for expatriates caught overseas who are trying to keep up their UMN  work across a great distance in space and time zones, and also for those still in Nepal who cannot leave and visit their families because they would be unable to return.
  • We were just informed that we will receive a letter tomorrow renewing UMN’s General Agreement with the government.  Praise the Lord!  Now we pray for the renewal of UMN’s hospital agreements and project agreement so that our service in Nepal may continue.
  • Pray for the selection process for UMN’s next Executive Director and new Board members.
