Pray The Lord's Prayer for Nepal
One way of praying consistently for Nepal and its people is to pray the Lord's Prayer over the country. You can use it as an outline, developing each line of the prayer to focus on the spiritual and physical needs of Nepali people.
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name.
- Give thanks that God has demonstrated His glory through the beauty of His creation in Nepal
- Pray that His name will be honoured in the way Nepali Christians live and speak about Him
Your Kingdom come
- Give thanks for the rapid growth of the Nepali church from the handful of believers in the 1950’s to the hundreds of thousands today
- Pray that people will hear about Jesus even in the remotest parts of the country
Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven
- Give thanks that God has a perfect plan for Nepal
- Pray that Nepal will be governed by the Kingdom principal of loving one’s neighbour
Give us this day our daily bread
- Give thanks for the fertile land in many parts of Nepal
- Pray that men, women and children living in physical and spiritual poverty will have food, shelter and a purpose in life
Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors
- Give thanks for the generosity of Nepali Christians making sacrifices to help those affected by earthquakes, landslides and floods
- Pray for forgiveness and reconciliation between different ethnic groups and political parties so that Nepal can move forward as a unified nation
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
- Give thanks for those working to bring good out of the recent dark times in Nepal
- Pray for strength for Nepali Christians to stand firm in their faith, even when this is difficult
Unless the Lord builds the house the builders labour in vain [Psalm 127:1]
All that INF does needs to be undergirded with prayer. We are so grateful to everyone who faithfully prays for our work, for our staff, and especially for the Nepali people we aim to serve.
Money can only do so much. But God uses our prayers to change hearts and minds, and to build the work done in His name.
