Gloriously housed in the tall towering mountain range – Himalayas, Nepal is home to the tallest mountain peak in the world, Mt. Everest. Every year it attracts tens of thousands of tourist and travellers. In spite of its ancient culture and natural grandeur, Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. Around forty percent of Nepalese live in poverty, and forty-seven percent are underemployed.
Furthermore, the youth in Nepal face crippling problems. Illiteracy, lack of educational opportunities, drug addiction, trafficking, HIV/Aids, and fundamentalism are among the woes that plague young people in Nepal.
Christian Believers in Nepal deal with persecution from family members and friends, communities, Maoists, and Hindu extremists. However, the Lord of the Harvest continues to reach the peoples of Nepal with His abounding love. According to Operation World, "There is a Church planted in every one of the seventy-five districts of Nepal, and there are at least some Believers in almost every people and caste group."
Pray for Christian Believers to reach out to the youth of Nepal with the Good News of Jesus Christ (The Bible, Psalm 119:9).
Pray for stable employment opportunities for the Nepalese. Ask God to provide economic growth in Nepal (The Bible, Psalm 40:2).
Pray for Believers to shine the Light of Christ into the darkness of Nepal. Pray for Nepalese Christians to boldly proclaim the Gospel despite maltreatment (The Bible, Matthew 5:14).
Praise the Lord for the growth of the Nepalese Church (The Bible, Acts 2:42).
