Prayer Priorities – November 8, 2022
“How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity.”
Psalm 133:1 (NRSVUE)
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.  
  • We are very grateful that the Nepal-Norway NGO Conference (2-3 Nov 2022) went very well, where Nepali Partners of Norway shared their field experiences and various speakers shared their thoughts on resilience and inclusion, climate change and its impact, gender and disability-related issues in the plenary sessions, followed by a visit to the International Centre For Integrated Mountain Development. It was very fruitful.
