See You at the Pole–Global Week of Student Prayer
When I was a public school teacher, I loved every opportunity I had to pray with my students. One great one is tomorrow, Wednesday, for See You at the Pole day.
For nealy 3 decades students have been gathering on this day at their flagpole to pray for their schools. Teachers are allowed to attend during non-instructional time.
We encourage everyone to participate and pray at your local schools’ flag pole for at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the school day. Our nation desperately needs prayer so whether it’s tomorrow, or this week for the Global Week of Student Prayer or in your prayer closet… we encourage everyone to pray 2 Chronicles 7:14 for our nation and schools.
From there website:
For over 25 years, See You at the Pole has been about one simple act—prayer. SYATP is still about students uniting themselves in prayer before God interceding for their generation.
There are two opportunities to unite in prayer with your friends:
- DAY: SEE YOU AT THE POLE day is on Wednesday, September 27, at 7:00 a.m. local time. All around the globe, in every time zone, students will be gathering at their flagpoles, praying for their school, friends, families, churches, and communities. SEE YOU AT THE POLE is a day committed to global unity in Christ and prayer for your generation.
- WEEK: The GLOBAL WEEK OF STUDENT PRAYER (Sunday, September 24 through Saturday, September 30) encourages students to find new and unique ways, places, and times to pray throughout the week. Whether you attend PUBLIC SCHOOL, PRIVATE SCHOOL, or HOME SCHOOL, gather your friends wherever and whenever and pray! The GLOBAL WEEK OF STUDENT PRAYER is dedicated to prayer and launching your on-campus Bible clubs, prayer strategies, and student ministries.
