See You at the Pole – Fix Your Eyes
If you have followed this blog, you know each year, I share about the See you at the Pole and talk about the theme for the current year and more. Since it is that time again, this blog post is about the See You at the Pole 2017. For over 25 years, students have been meeting at the flag pole of their school and doing student led prayer. You will often hear the students refer to see you at the pole as SYATP.
The students will pray and make intercession for their generation and fellow peers.
The 2017, See You at the Pole will be held on Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at 7:00 a.m., your local time. So around the globe, in time zones everywhere. Therefore, for 24 hours, students will be fixing their eyes and praying at their school flag pole. This day falls during Global Week of Student Prayer (Sunday, September 24, 2017 through Saturday, September 30, 2017).[pullquote]See You at the Pole empowers students in prayer at the beginning of the school year to take leadership at their schools[/pullquote]
It doesn’t matter if you are in Public School, Private School or Home School just gather and pray! If you don’t have a flag pole, find a central location and meet there and pray!
Students usually pray for their school, friends, family, churches, community, teachers, careers and much more.
Hebrews 12:2 NASB
fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
“Fix Our Eyes”
“Fix Our Eyes” (from Hebrews 12:2) is the theme for See You at the Pole 2017, which is all about students praying at their schools. The event, scheduled for Wednesday, September 27, at schools across the United States and in many other countries.
In recent years, the event has become more than just one day of prayer. With diverse schedules at participating schools, students are being challenged to find new and unique ways, places, and times to pray throughout the Global Week of Student Prayer—September 24-30, 2017.
Then on Wednesday, September 27th at 7:00 a.m. local time, if possible, students are encouraged to gather at a school flagpole to pray at See You at the Pole. This means that, all around the world in every time zone, for 24 hours, students will be praying for their school, friends, families, churches, and communities.
This is the 27nd 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.
The San Diego-based National Network of Youth Ministries coordinates SYATP promotion. Daryl Nuss, executive director of the Network, commented: “See You at the Pole empowers students in prayer at the beginning of the school year to take leadership at their schools.”
Church congregations can show support for See You at the Pole by sponsoring special “Pray for Schools” emphasis in their worship services September 16-17, two weekends before See You at the Pole. Participants can recognize and pray for Christian students, educators and schools in their congregations. For resources, please go to PrayForSchools.com.
