Students around the world Sept. 28, for See You at the Pole,â„˘ the Global Day of Student Prayer.
Be a part of something much bigger than your own local campusâ€”join the movement.
Be encouraged, challenged, and blessed to experience what God is doing globally. Regardless of the church group or the school peer group, gather with everyone and pray.
The 2011 See You at the Pole theme verse is a promise from Scripture that is one of the most popular and quoted throughout history by believers.
Whenever two or three of you come together in my name,Â I am there with you. Matthew 18:20 CEV
This simple verse is a comforting and encouraging promise from Jesus Himself that helps us to know He is always with us. When we gather and agree together, placing Him first, He is there. And when God and His people converge for prayer, lives change.
There are many See You at the Poleâ„˘ gatherings where dozens of students, sometimes even hundreds, gather to pray at their school flagpoles. Yet there are thousands of campuses where just a handful meet to pray.
Regardless of number, God takes each situation seriously and promises to be in their midst. So, whether your school has a huge group that covers the front of the school or you have just two or three, there is power in each group.
What an amazing thought that on Sept. 28, millions of people all over the world will be prayingâ€”each in their own language. Converge with your generation for a Global Day of Student Prayer.
