Prayer Points – October 11
Prayer Points – October 11
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 
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
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
  • During the Dashain and Tihar Festival period huge numbers of people will be travelling around the country to visit their homes and spend time with families. Please pray that this will not result in a large rise in infection rates. Pray especially for all UMN staff, many of whom have not been able to be with family for months. May this be a wonderful time of family togetherness and also safety.
  • Last week a social audit was carried out with all the Clusters along with the District Project Advisory Committee meeting. Praise be to the Lord ! The Chief District Officer, District Coordination Committee Chair, Chair of the Rural Municipalities, Partners, and Beneficiaries, etc. oversaw the process.  Feedback on this review of the work of UMN has been very positive. The Clusters were recognised as being accountable and transparent and many suggestions were offered by the beneficiaries and stakeholders. This is the first social audit UMN has ever been engaged in, and we ask you to pray that this kind of exercise will result in greater understanding and acceptance of our work.  Social Audit has now become one of the legal compliances of the government.
  • Tansen Hospital continues to be under great pressure with many very seriously ill patients.  There have been patients with seasonal illness, (babies with bronchiolitis, scrub Typhus and snake bite patients). The covid numbers were decreasing but have shown a slight increase again the past few days. Pray for this work and also for the five new Expat families who are preparing to come to Tansen to increase the capacity of the hospital.
