On Wednesday, September 27, 2017, at 7:00 A.M. local time, students will observe See You at the Pole day by gathering at their schools’ flagpoles for prayer.
According to SYATP.com, “[for] the last 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.” In addition, the Global Week of Student Prayer will be held on Sunday, September 24 through Saturday, September 30; this weeklong event “is dedicated to prayer and launching…on-campus Bible clubs, prayer strategies, and student ministries.”
The See You at the Pole movement was birthed in 1990 in Burleson, Texas, when a group of students gathered at their school flagpoles for prayer. Other students followed suit, and a vision of simultaneous student prayer was birthed. The first See You at the Pole day was held on September 12, 1990, and a reported total of 45,000 students in four states participated. The next year, approximately one million students across America participated in See You at the Pole.
New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms encourages Christian students at public, private, and home schools in New York to participate in See You at the Pole. Just imagine the ways that God might work in our schools if students gathered together to seek Him!
