This morning students around the country are gathering at flag poles on their school campuses. It is a morning to stand and be counted. A morning to lift up to our God prayers for our friends, family, schools, administration, teachers, city, state and national governments.
I will be spending my morning at Oakland Middle school where I am predicting 150+ students will gather in Jesus’ name to pray. It is an honor to stand among them.
Whether a single student standing alone, two or three huddled together in unity, or hundreds gathered in front of the school, See You at the Pole is about students praying for awakening on campuses all over the world.
The 2012 See You at the Pole theme is Awaken and the Scripture is Ephesians 3:14–21—“For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father… I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being so that Christ may dwell in your hearts…And I pray that you… grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and…that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine…’”
Pray for these teenagers today that as they take a stand on public property and exercise their religious liberty, they will be a light that points not tho their own spirituality or goodness, but to Jesus. For He is the only hope for our schools, our nation, and our world.
To Him be the Glory this morning.
