Pray for us Compassionate Care Ministry team members that the Lord might use us to fulfil His mission.

May the Lord care for them and light up their lives, now and in the future.
Student | Egypt
Brothers and sisters, please pray that this ministry continues to grow and reach those who are related to the children including family, friends, classmates and neighbors. Many of them endured the cruelty of war, and they have had enough, so pray that we bring them more of the love of Christ. May the Lord bless you.
Youssef | Sudan
The families we visited are facing many difficulties. Please pray for them, and for us, so that we stand by them and show them love.

Pray that the unity and enthusiasm the team members exhibited this Christmas will last throughout the academic year.
Ibrahim | Sudan
Pray for the kids we met at the shelter, and pray for the coming visits we hope to make. They need a listening ear and a supportive presence.

Pray also for my church as it continues to work on getting the official papers for its land.
Prayer Request from the ABTS family
We usually look for new beginnings at the start of each year. As we welcome 2020, we look back at another year that has passed, gleaning lessons for the year to come. Join us in prayer for God’s work to extend more in the region. May our hearts be ready to heed His voice, fixing our eyes on the goal, redeeming the time, making use of every opportunity.
While, in Lebanon, we are still in the middle of a crisis, we continue to put our trust in the Mighty God whom we serve as we join Him on His mission. We also rejoice at the sight of our students maturing into vessels of much use for the Kingdom, and we ask you to pray for them knowing that He who began a good work in them will complete it.

My family and I haven’t fully reconciled because of my faith. Though they have come to terms with it, they still give me a hard time. Please pray for me regarding this matter. Pray for my local church, as they still haven’t received the official papers stating their ownership of the land, but we hope that things will be different with the current changes in the country. Please also pray for unity and peace in my local church and the Sudanese Church.
Pray for Lebanon
- Pray that the current ruling political class gains sensitivity to the people’s needs in this critical situation, addressing them wisely with a readiness to sacrifice their own interests for the sake of the country’s deliverance.
- Pray for protection over those in the Lebanese judicial system. May they be given boldness and impartiality so that corruption does not go unpunished and justice runs its course paving the way for fiscal and governmental reform.
- Pray for the people of Lebanon not to be driven be fear during this economic situation. Many gas stations are temporarily closing across the country due to limited access to foreign currencies and the country’s ability to import essential goods (such as food, medicine, and fuel) is declining.
- Pray for God’s Kingdom to expand at all times and during all circumstances in Lebanon. Pray for God to give His Church a spirit of generosity to reflect His love to the community during this time.
