“REVEAL” (Matthew 6:9-13) is the theme for See You at the Pole 2010, the Annual Global Day of Student Prayer. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, September 22, at schools across the United States and in other countries.
Many Other nations have launched SYATP movements with their own promotional efforts, including Australia (where it was observed in 2010 on May 20) and Canada (on the same date as U.S.).
This is the 20th anniversary for See You at the Pole, 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.
Everything necessary for students to plan and promote a successful SYATP is available free at www.syatp.com. Additional promotional resources can be ordered online or by calling (817) HIS-PLAN (447-7526) between 9-5 (Central Time), Monday-Friday. Brochures, a promotional DVD, and posters are some of the materials available for 2010.
The San Diego-based National Network of Youth Ministries coordinates SYATP promotion. Paul Fleischmann, president of the Network, commented: “For 20 years, we have seen this day serve as a springboard for unity for teenagers on their secondary and college campuses. See You at the Pole unites students in prayer at the beginning of the school year. Challenging youth to take leadership on their campus is always a good idea. Every year, it offers a fresh challenge for them to minister to their friends.”
Xenia public and school officials, businesses, churches, non-profit organizations, citizens, and visitors could use some fervent prayer of its youth. Let’s God see and hears many of them at the pole.
