Susanna | Sudan
Pray that God breaks the barrier between Church and society in Sudan. Pray that He grants peace to the Sudanese people and the freedom for all to practice their faith. It is still difficult to serve God in some areas of the country. Pray that He raises up more servants because the need is great. Pray for my husband and me to press on despite the challenges of ministry in Sudan, and to take hold of every opportunity even as we study.
Elissar | Lebanon
I am now serving with a newly established ministry that focuses on leadership training, church planting, peacebuilding and reconciliation, and advocating women’s rights. I ask you to pray for this ministry.
Student from Morocco
Pray that the Lord opens up new opportunities of ministry in Morocco. Also, pray for Lebanon and for the difficult time it is going through.
Yaser | Syria
I ask you to pray for Syria. Pray that the situation there becomes better. Recently, there have been some skirmishes happening between the Turks and the Russians. Pray that this does not escalate. Pray for my family and my ministry. Pray that the Lord guides me as I serve. Also, pray for my sister, and my wife’s family to know the Lord.
Zeinab | Syria
I ask you to pray for our ministry here and our graduation. Pray for my parents and my husbands’ parents who are still in Syria. Pray that they come to the Lord and find salvation in Him.
Elsadig | Sudan
Pray for my country Sudan and for the ministry I will carry out there. Part of my ministry will include seminars, revivals, youth events and other administrative work at my local church. Pray also that I might manage my time effectively so I can fulfill all my academic responsibilities. May I learn lessons of perseverance and endurance as I step closer toward the end of this training period.
Niyazi | Sudan
I pray the Lord sends more theologically trained students to the Church in Sudan because of the urgent need. The Sudanese church is big, and there are not enough equipped leaders.
Amin | Sudan
Pray for my two brothers who are distant from the Lord. Pray for Sudan, that the country might know peace at last. I feel that this is the time for us to be ministering there, as the political situation is changing. Pray that the Lord creates opportunities for ministry in Sudan so that we continue to move towards change and towards making the country better.
Pray for ABTS, Lebanon and for Sudan
While Lebanon and the world wrestles with the Corona virus, the Lebanese economic situation continues to be on the brink of collapse. Things have not improved neither for institutions nor for individuals. Still, the new government has not put forward an economic rescue plan.
In the midst of all this, pray that we at ABTS do not respond through fear but in accordance to God’s will. Pray for the Church in Lebanon to fix its eyes on Him who is Sovereign so that we are moved with His compassion to help others pass through the crises while modelling to them a Christ-like attitude.
We also ask you to pray for Sudan and the Sudanese Church. Last week there was an attempt to assassinate the Sudanese Prime Minister as the country passes through a period of change. Pray for God’s kingdom to spread in Sudan and for freedom and justice to become the new reality in the country.
The mission of ABTS is to serve the Church in our region as it realizes its Biblical mission of having Christ acknowledged as Lord by offering specialized learning resources and equipping faithful men and women for effective service.
Please keep us in your prayers so that we continue to serve His church in a way the is pleasing to Him. Pray that our faculty, staff, students and graduates be continuously transformed into the image of His likeness.
Please also pray for the church in Lebanon as it explores new ways to be salt and light in the middle of the current crisis.
