"See You At The Pole" across the USA tomorrow!

see you at the pole

“CONNECT: Speak, for your servant is listening.” (1 Samuel 3:10) is the theme for See You at the Pole this year, with the event scheduled for Wednesday, September 24 at schools throughout the United States and in many other countries.

In 2007, more than 2 million teenagers met for See You at the Pole in all 50 states. Reports also came in from countries around the world. Other countries have launched SYATP movements with their own promotional efforts, including Australia (where it was observed this year on May 22; see stories at www.syatpaustralia.com) and Canada (on the same date as U.S.; www.syatpcanada.com).

See You at the Pole is a student-initiated and student-led movement that started in the Ft. Worth suburb of Burleson, Texas, in 1990. SYATP brings students to their school flagpoles to intercede for their leaders, schools, and families, asking God to bring moral and spiritual awakening to their campuses and countries.

The San Diego-based National Network of Youth Ministries coordinates SYATP promotion. Paul Fleischmann, president of the Network, observed: “Every year, we have seen this day serve as a springboard for unity among teenagers on their campuses. See You at the Pole unites students in prayer at the beginning of the semester. Young people have taken unprecedented leadership through this to have a positive impact at their schools.”

I just prayed at See You At The Pole at my school in Manila, Philippines with 50 others! SYATP started in the U.S.A. but it is happening around the world. Before you pray in the U.S., students have been praying in Philippines, New Zealand, Australia, Guam, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, China, Malaysia, Kenya, South Africa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nigeria, Ghana, Germany, Norway, Portugal, U.K., Ecuador, Peru, and Canada. Praise God!
