Prayer Priorities – October 25, 2022
“I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labour. For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.”
Corinthians 3:6-9, NIV
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.  
  • Praise God that UMN’s long awaited, ‘Learning Review (LR) and Staff Bhetghat 2022’ – one of the crucial events of the year – went well last week. Let’s unite our hearts and give thanks to God in unison that He enabled all of us to prepare for Synergy Time and Gallery Walk, the highlights of the LR, a very innovative and creative way of learning and sharing this time.
  • Please pray for the Integral Development Team as all the team members will be engaged in organising Sangasangai Training of Trainers for 18 facilitators and 6 Integral Development focal persons from all of UMN’s clusters, organised from 31 October to 3 November 2022 next week.
  • Pray for the health of our staff, patients and everyone in Nepal. Both dengue and COVID continue to circulate here, including among our staff and their families.
  • Please keep remembering the national elections coming up in November. Pray for fair and effective leaders to be chosen.
Cluster Work
  • Pray for UMN cluster staff as most of them will be traveling to their respective clusters next week after the Learning Review and Tihar holiday.
Tansen Hospital
  • Pray for our pharmacy department. Every day it handles a huge number of vital medications for our inpatients and outpatients. Supply lines must be constantly checked and secured. Praise God for a strong department with wise leadership and attention to detail.
  • Pray also for our ultrasound department which performs thousands of these examinations each year, contributing to the diagnosis and management of so many medical and surgical problems that come through the hospital. So much relies on their service which is getting busier every year.
Okhaldhunga Community Hospital
  • Pray for comfort and strength for Dr Roshan Kharel (hospital director) and his family after the loss of his father recently. 
  • Pray that the third year nursing students can complete all their assessments successfully, including assisting expectant mothers with ‘normal’ births. This relies on suitable deliveries to come when the student can also be observed – C-section births do not count!
  •  Pray for an expatriate doctor and his family (wife and four children) from Australia who arrived last week to serve for two months. Pray for them to settle in well and know God’s anointing for their time here – their first visit to Nepal.
