Prayer Priorities – August 2, 2022
“The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.”
Psalm 9v9-10 
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.  
  • This week Tansen Hospital will farewell Sister Gomati, after 40 years full time faithful service – most of those years in the anaesthesia department. We have many staff who have been present for decades or retired after life-long service. Give praise to God for their commitment over so many years. “We serve, Jesus heals”
  • Praise God that our driver Ramesh Shivabhakti has a baby girl born last night – both mother and child are safe and sound. We rejoice with them.
  • Yet again we ask your continued prayer for the Property issue for our Thapathali headquarters. After hoping for clear verdicts on Monday and Tuesday, both the Supreme and High Court Hearings have been postponed upon the request of Himal Hydro. The High Court hearing will probably take place on 29 August, but the Supreme Court is postponed until January 2023. Pray about all preparations for this and for final resolution.

  • Please pray for the doctors and nurses working in the medical wards including the High Dependency Unit – where the sickest patients are found. It is challenging work.
