See You at the Pole marks 24 years

NASHVILLE (BP) — An estimated 3 million or more elementary through college Christian students gathered at flagpoles on campuses across the United States and many foreign countries Sept. 24 to pray for moral and spiritual awakening for their schools and communities.
“See You at the Pole” marked its 24th year. The global prayer meeting was held on campuses preferably at 7 a.m. local time. Last year event organizers added Global Week of Student Prayer to the event, set this year Sept. 21-27, to accommodate schools closed or engaged in other events on the 24th.
“What it is intended to be is about prayer and humbling ourselves before God, but in a united way,” event promotion coordinator Doug Clark said. “The uniqueness of See You at the Pole is its students from all different backgrounds, different churches, who come together and then can dream together in this attitude of prayer — ‘God what would you have us to do next?’
“What we hope is that See You at the Pole is a launching pad for students being missionaries to their campus,” he said.
