Prayer Points – October 18
Prayer Points – October 18
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 
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Psalm 91v1
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
  • More than 700,000 people have left Kathmandu Valley for their hometowns and villages to celebrate Dashain in the six days since October 7 or Ghatasthapana, the first day of the festival. Please pray this does not lead to an upsurge in infection and that as travellers return they will have safe travel.
  • A number of our Expat staff have recently returned to Nepal and others are making plans to return. Please pray for safe travel, trouble free processing of travel and Covid-19 documentation and quick re-settling back to ‘home’.
  • Continue in prayer for all negotiations with Government regarding project agreements and property issues. We hope that following the holiday period real progress can be made.
  • Please keep on praying for all the preparations for the upcoming Board of Trustees meeting followed by the UMN General Assembly on 24 -25 November. At this point Joel Hafvenstein will officially hand over the role of Executive Director to Dhana Lama. Both will appreciate your prayers as will all board members and supporting partners at this time.
  • Okhaldhunga Hospital oxygen plant house is almost completed, and the oxygen plant has been dispatched last Wednesday from China. Okhaldhunga Hospital expects to receive it before the Tihar holiday (4 November). Please pray that all of this happens without any problems.
