See You at the Pole Sept. 28, 7:30AM
“AFLAME” (from Romans 12:11-12) is the theme for See You at the Pole™ 2022, which is all about students praying at their schools. The event is planned for Wednesday, September 28, at schools around the world.
The event is more than just one day of prayer. With the continuing challenge of Covid-19 affecting schedules and access at participating schools, students are challenged to find creative ways, places, and times to pray throughout the Global Week of Student Prayer—September 25-October 1.
Then on Wednesday, September 28, if possible, students are encouraged to gather at a school flagpole or other community location to pray. 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 32nd year 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.
The San Diego-based National Network of Youth Ministries coordinates SYATP promotion. Doug Clark, national field director of the Network, noted: “See You at the Pole™ is a ‘moment.’ We hope adults and students will consider turning that moment into a movement by praying every day. This year, with the continued challenge of disruptions that have affected the US and every country, we need to ask God to pour out His Spirit on us more than ever. The heart of SYATP is extraordinary prayer.”
