Prayer Priorities – November 29, 2022
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.”
Romans 8:28
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.  
  • Two days of training on financial responsibility in Nawalparasi for all the staff and some of the board members of our partner organisation INDRENI went well. Praise God for that.
  • Let us all unite our hearts and praise God for the wonderful sun that we enjoy every morning and for the warm clothes that we have.
