Pray for Bible colleges:
preparing students for ministry

Pray for Bible colleges

The day Bible college students receive their diploma is one they all look forward to. But the years before are filled with challenging classes, long days of studying and more than a year of practical ministry experience.

Many students are first-generation believers who start with a limited understanding of God’s Word, but they are driven by a desire to see villages reached with the love of Christ. Please pray with us for these students.

Pray for students

Some have traveled far from home and against their families’ wishes. Some gave up thriving careers. Others have dreamed of nothing else for years. As they face up to three years of challenging Bible study and ministry training, though, only those who seek the Lord wholeheartedly will endure.

Please pray that our students will commit their time to the Lord. Pray that He will be their source of strength and comfort when they are discouraged and that they will remain confident in their calling.

Pray for teachers.

With years of ministry experience and spiritual growth, the teachers are responsible for fully equipping students for ministry, instructing them in Bible study, prayer and practical wisdom.

Please pray for the Lord’s guidance as they disciple the students to become the servants they are called to be. Pray that each instructor will lead a life that demonstrates true dedication to God.

Pray for Bible colleges

Pray for practical ministry internships.

After one to two years in the classroom, each student spends a year in practical ministry on the field. This experience provides valuable guidance as students refine their skills.

Pray for peace and confidence in Christ as students apply what they’ve learned. Ask God to guide them in sharing His love and to keep their eyes always on Him.

Pray for Bible colleges

Pray for recent graduates.

As they venture into new lands or return to home villages, new graduates must consider how they can most effectively share the love of Christ.

Please pray for wisdom and for favour in these communities. Ask that they will hear clearly from the Lord and have the confidence to obey.

Pray for more students.

Each class graduates with the knowledge that many more workers are needed if all of Asia is to hear of God’s love.

Please pray for students with a fervent passion to minister to their people. Pray that those God has called will hear and obey, trusting Him to provide in every way for them and their families while they study.
