Prayer Points – October 4
Prayer Points – October 4
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 
Lord, there is no one like you to help the powerless against the mighty. Help us, Lord our God, for we rely on you.
2 Chronicles 14v11
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
  • Pray for the work of the Staff Support Group (SSG) which is available to all UMN Staff to listen to their concerns and offer support as they deal with the pressures of life and work. Normal work pressures are many and these have been increased with the fears of illness due to the pandemic. Pray especially for Andrew Young (SSG Team leader) and his wife Andrea who are returning to Nepal today after a long period away in UK.
  • We rejoice in the amazing support given in our ‘Second Wave Appeal’. Well over 200,000 US Dollars supporting not just our hospitals, but 14 others, 49 Health Posts and 35 Isolation centres. Pray that all this support is used to save lives, and that this generosity will be seen for what it is – practical demonstration of love and care for the most needy people of Nepal.
  • Aware of the widespread incidence of violence against women, UMN is exploring how to use training provided by Tear Fund on Transforming Masculinity and making a ‘Journey to Healing’. Pray that these courses can be widely used to help both men and women find better relationships, healing and freedom from fear.
  • Continue in prayer for the Leadership Team. Recently consideration has been given to how the outworking of UMN’s values can be strengthened. Pray for wisdom in this discussion and decisions that can be followed with clarity and determination.
  • Pray for the wastewater scheme for United Mission Hospital Tansen to gain final approval from district officials here, using a Rotary Global grant from several countries. The hospital has been busy with meetings and visits while our engineer Ed Kramer is in Tansen for two weeks. Please pray this project can be successfully completed to bless and protect the hospital and neighbouring community.
