Pray for Lebanon
July Prayer Points
“Moreover, it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.”

Prayer Focus: SUMMER CAMPS
Although our non-formal education students are about to be on summer break, the staff of Heart for Lebanon moves right into summer with camps filled with bible stories, activities, and fun. With summer camps for kids in the South and in the Bekaa Valley we will see approximately 500 kids come out to find hope, purpose, and meaning while attending with friends and family members.
Here is a story you helped make possible:
Co-founder Hoda Melki, recently hosted kids, teaching them the story of Matthew 26 where Jesus healed Simon the leper. She shared how Simon’s parents may have been sad that their son was separated from them before being healed by Jesus. Dalal, a young 3rd grader immediately raised her hand and said, “Ms. Hoda, my mother died a year ago!” Dalal then began to cry. Hoda then took all the kids to Ephesians 5:20, “Always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to our God and father.” She had each student come up and hold the Bible and read that verse from it. Hoda says that this activity helped them understand how to have hope and helped them to remember this important verse.
Here are opportunities to pray for and support:
- Pray for Dalal and the grief of the loss of her mother while she finds hope in being thankful for Jesus.
- Pray for the camps and staff as they plan and execute valuable life-giving lessons on hope, faith, and love as each child learns about Jesus.
- Be thankful for Hoda and the leadership team as they pour out love and compassion on many kids that live in despair.
- Be thankful for the many church partners, investors, foundations, and friends that continue to support Heart for Lebanon and its vision to reach those in despair.
