Our take: Every year, students across the country celebrate "See You at the Pole" by gathering for a community prayer before classes. This year's theme encouraged students to find a spiritual awakening. This post from The Christian Post recaps today's celebration.
Millions of students across the country and globally are participating in a "See You at the Pole" event at their schools today, praying for a spiritual awakening, the theme chosen for the 22nd annual prayer rally.
"If two or more people join together and pray for something, that can move mountains and I love that," Illinois high school student Lasha Lobo told The Christian Post on Tuesday. "I love that I can go to school without feeling like I'm drowning in the sea of high school."
See You at the Pole, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at their school. More than two decades later, millions around the world pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September.
Organizers say SYATP is simply a prayer rally where students meet at the school flagpole before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. SYATP is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event.
