Across the United States, students will soon go to their respective school campuses’ flag poles and pray together for friends, family, their teachers and the nation.
Known as “See You at the Pole,” the annual event will take place on Wednesday and is expected to have over 1 million participants.
Doug Clark, promotion coordinator for See You at the Pole, told The Christian Post that it is “vital” for students to gather together and pray at their schools.
“The heart of God that has been revealed to us about this event is that students might feel ownership and vision to represent Him to their schools,” Clark said.
“The unity factor of SYATP is key,” he asserted. “Students are involved in many different churches, but they come together as the body of Christ when they pray at SYATP.”
The event, which was started by a small group of teenagers in Burleson, Texas, in 1990, has blossomed into a widely observed event with participants throughout the country.
