Annual Global Day of Student Prayer – Wednesday, September 24, 2014
Imagine the potential of Christians from all different churches and ministries at a school joining together in united prayer. See You At The Pole brings teenagers to their school flagpoles to intercede for other students, their schools, families and nation, asking God to bring moral and spiritual awakening.
See You at the Pole is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event. In fact, it started in the Ft. Worth, Texas suburb of Burleson in 1990, at the initiative of ten students praying at several schools in their community.
SYATP is always planned for the fourth Wednesday in September. This year that date is September 24, 2014 at schools across the United States and many countries around the world. Other nations have launched SYATP movements as well including Australia and Canada.
Paul Fleischmann, past president of the National Network of Youth Ministries in San Diego, California, stated: “For 21 years, we have seen this day serve as a springboard for unity for teenagers on their campuses. Every year, it offers a fresh challenge for them to minister to their friends.”
Church congregations nationwide can show support for See You at the Pole by sponsoring special “Campus Challenge Sunday” commissioning services on the weekend before See You at the Pole.
