Here are some prayer requests from our students. Let us lift them up together in prayer!
Abir, first-year Bachelor of Theology female student from Sudan
Please pray that God would give me the strength to fulfil my academic requirements. After I graduate, pray for my ministry in Sudan and for the children I will be serving.
Abu Kindy, first-year Bachelor of Theology male student from Sudan
Pray for me to endure the academic pressures because the result will be beautiful. I ask you to pray for my wife and kids who are in Sudan. I am communicating with them every now and then, and I can’t wait to see them this summer.
Awad, first-year Bachelor of Theology male student from South Sudan
Pray for my ministry in Sudan. My hope is to plant a church in the area of Raga in South Sudan. My heart is always there, and I often have dreams about Raga. Pray for my family members, who have not yet met Christ; I am the only born again believer in my family. My final prayer request is to find a good wife; it is my desire to get married in 2018, if God allows.
Awney, first-year Bachelor of Theology male student from Egypt
I ask you to pray for me because I am getting married this summer, and pray that God would lead me to where I should be.
Eilia, first-year Bachelor of Theology male student from Sudan
Please pray for my three-year study period at ABTS. I also ask you to pray for me that I might be able to see my family this summer. I haven’t seen them for nine years because of the war in Darfur.
Fady, first-year Bachelor of Theology male student from Egypt
I am engaged to a girl from my country, and it is hard to be away. Pray that God would encourage and strengthen me during this time. May He also fill me with His Presence so that I may tread deeper into the Knowledge of Him.
Hazem, first-year Bachelor of Theology male student from Syria
Join me in prayer for peace to prevail in Syria and for more biblically sound churches to emerge there. Please pray for my father and mother who serve in a Baptist church in Damascus.
Hiba, first-year Certificate in Theology female student from Syria
I ask you to pray for me and my husband Rafed to give our kids enough time despite the academic challenges.
John, first-year Master of Divinity male student from Egypt
I ask you to pray for me to understand God’s will for my life and to do well in my studies.
First-year Bachelor of Theology male student from Egypt
Please pray that I would constantly be open to God’s transforming power. Pray for my church in Egypt and for the unity of all churches. I hope to have a role in making that happen.
Nabou, first-year Certificate in Theology male student from Syria
The Turkish army is now shelling the area of Afrin in Syria and has raided it by air and land. It was a relatively safe area before. Afrin is where Zainab [Nabou’s wife] comes from. Please pray for the people of Afrin and for us that we might be able to finish our education.
Nouh, first-year Certificate in Theology male student from Algeria
Please keep me in your prayers. Pray for me that I might be able to excel in my studies and to remain persistent even when I am feeling down. Sometimes I find it hard to fit in despite the fact that I am always smiling and make others laugh. Please pray for my family in Algeria who have not yet accepted Christ.
Rafed, first-year Certificate in Theology male student from Syria
I ask you to pray for peace to fill my country Syria once more. My wife Hiba and I will be graduating by the end of this year, so pray for me and my family’s return to Syria, and pray for our ministry there. It is my heart’s desire to be a blessing to others. Finally, I ask you to pray for the seminary, for the professors and staff members that they might find comfort in Christ.
Waheed, first-year Bachelor of Theology male student from Sudan
Right before I came to Lebanon, my dad was suffering from high blood pressure and cholesterol. He might have to undergo a surgery if his arteries get clogged. He is now exercising and eating healthy in the hopes that his cholesterol level will decrease, and he would not need surgery. Please pray for him. I also ask you to pray that the Lord would show me in what kind of ministry I should get involved just as he showed me that I must study theology.
Yaacoub, first-year Certificate in Theology male student from Syria
Pray that the Lord would comfort the hearts of my country’s people. Please pray for the You Tube series we are making so that the message would be sent without offending anyone.
Prayer requests from ABTS staff and faculty
Pray for God to grow the seeds that we are planting. May we see our students being shaped as He pleases. Pray for Him to prepare the hearts of the people whom they will be serving during their summer vacations and after graduation.
Pray for the Lord to increase our faith and provide faculty who are called to equip leaders for the Arab world. And to give us wisdom as we continue working to raise funds for our students’ scholarships and projects.
