MEBO Monthly Prayer Focus
MEBO Monthly Prayer Focus is your opportunity to pray for the work of God’s kingdom in Lebanon and the Middle East. Every month we focus on a different aspect of the ministries you can support through MEBO, providing you with information and prayer points so you can pray with insight. Please use this resource to pray with your Community Group, your dorm floor, globally-minded friends, pastoral leadership, believing neighbors and colleagues, and also in your personal quiet time. Invite your parents, children, or grandchildren to pray, too. Thank you for joining us in prayer this month!
October 2018: Meeting students’ needs
As a new academic year begins, the staff of Beirut Baptist School (BBS) are dedicating themselves again to their holistic goal to “prepare students in mind, body, and spirit to meet the challenges of the world around them.” Teachers will be developing students’ knowledge, critical skills and thinking using the latest technology to make learning fun, accessible and relevant to today’s culture and workplace. They will also be providing a range of extracurricular activities and services like special needs and counselling, encouraging students to engage in community service and to embrace values like equality and respect for each other. Pastoral issues remain at the forefront: BBS is especially sensitive to students whose families are suffering from economic burdens, helping them to remain at school through the subsidy fund that is available.
Please pray that:
- Children joining BBS for the first time this year will feel welcome and settled at school quickly.
- Returning students to have an enjoyable year of learning.
- Families who experience financial hardship will receive the support and opportunities they need.
- BBS staff to continue to nurture a peaceful academic environment that encourages students to learn and excel.
- BBS to continue to meet the holistic needs of students, particularly those with individual learning differences or any other support and care to reach their fullest potential.
