During the retreat, they went to several area schools, stood around the flagpole, and prayed. A few months later, they told about their experience at a conference that involved students from all over Texas. In September of that year, more the 56,000 young people participated in the first See You at the Pole.
They all joined together constantly in prayer. Acts 1:14a (NIV)
See You at the Pole was started by a group of youth who wanted to pray together for their schools. Today, millions of students gather at their flag poles on the fourth Wednesday of September to pray. I am grateful to be one of them. The simple act of praying, knowing that I am united in prayer with people all over the world, is an uplifting experience. God is present at the flag pole.
ACT ON IT: How will you participate in prayer at your school? How can you, united with others in your community and around the world, show forth the amazing love of God?
