See You at the Pole™, the global day of student prayer. It began in 1990 with ten students praying at their school. Nearly thirty years later, millions of students pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September.

See You At the Pole is about one simple thing—

This years Verse is …

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV

IF…” (from 2 Chronicles 7:14) is the theme for See You at the Pole 2019, which is all about students praying at their schools. The event is planned for Wednesday, September 25, 2019, at schools around the world.

The event is 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 22-28, 2019.

Then on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 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 29th anniversary for See You at the Pole, a student-initiated and student-led event that started in Burleson, Texas, in 1990. SYATP brings students together to intercede for their leaders, schools, and families, asking God to bring moral and spiritual awakening to their campuses and countries.

  1. I just read about your organization and think it’s awesome! God has been taken out of so many schools, not only in the U.S. but in Canada as well. I highly doubt the public school system in Canada would allow students to pray around the flag pole in the school yard but it would be worth a try. Our public school is in a small village and there are many students who are from Christian homes. We need God in our lives and I pray for my children and grandchildren because the world we live in today is so different from the world I grew up in when I was going to public school.
    Keep up the effort and my thoughts and prayers are with your faith community of “See You at the Pole”.

    1. Thank you for the comment, see me at the pole, is an article I wrote about, not my organization. But it is a really good one. We need God back into EVERYTHING! It is worth a try in Canada. Thank you for visiting and commenting. Be sure to subscribe as I do a lot of Christian blog posts and blog about other ministries too.
