Prayer Points – November 8
Prayer Points – November 8
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 
“Wait for the Lord, be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”
Psalm 27v14
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
  • Last week we asked you to pray for those in Thalara (Bajhang cluster) who had suffered a deadly landslide. Pray that the practical help offered to families there will have helped in restoring some stability to their lives. Please also remember that all over Nepal hundreds of poor families have been suffering in similar ways.
  • Thankfully the storms have mostly subsided and in the next weeks many staff will be travelling extensively to visit Clusters and projects. Pray for travelling safety; for families at home; and for all meetings and decisions that must be made.
  • In particular please pray for Dhana and Bishal who from today until 16th November will be visiting the clusters of Kapilvastu and Nawalparasi. Bishal has taken up his new role as Programme Partner Team Leader, and Dhana will shortly become the New Executive Director. Pray that these visits will be valuable in developing our work.
  • As Tihar holiday has ended and many return from large family gatherings please pray that there will not be a further rise in infection rates.
  • Climate change is tangibly affecting Nepal and pushing many people deeper into poverty, especially farmers in UMN’s rural working areas.  Please pray for the ongoing Glasgow climate conference, that the verbal commitments being made there will be backed up by real action that eases the climate burden on countries like Nepal.
