The Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS) in Beirut, Lebanon, equips leaders for ministry in the Middle East and North Africa. The ABTS has enrollees from all over the world and has shared the following prayer requests from first-year students:

Elissar from Lebanon

Please pray for the Lord to give me the needed strength and wisdom in my relationships and the focus to study diligently while I am here. Please pray for my family members, too. They see the change in me, and I desire to be a witness continuously so that they, too, come to the faith.

El Sadig from Sudan

Please pray for my academic journey here. Pray for the Lord to open my mind so I can understand and benefit from all the lessons and lectures. Please pray for my future ministry after graduation. I would like to invest in children’s ministry, so that children would grow up with the love of God in their hearts.

Saleem from Jordan

Please pray for my future ministry. I would like to start an elderly home in my country and a Bible school. I also hope to focus on pastoral work, apologetics and working with young adults.
