See You at the Pole - Prayer at School!

Not only was it allowed - it was encouraged as part of the national "See You at the Pole" meet-ups. This year's 'See You At The Pole' marks the 20th year of Student-Led Prayers. Around two million students across the nation and overseas were expected to gather at their schools Wednesday to ask God to bring moral and spiritual awakening to their campuses and countries.

The student-initiated and student-led movement started in the Ft. Worth suburb of Burleson, Texas, in 1990. “Challenging youth to take leadership on their campus is always a good idea. It’s important to remember that though it has a 20-year history, it’s fresh to today’s students,” he added.

This year’s theme, “Engage: Go and Pray,” draws upon the first sentence that appears in 2 Kings 22:13, which records the words of King Josiah upon hearing from the Book of Law. “Go and inquire of the LORD for me and for the people and for all Judah about what is written in this book that has been found,” Josiah had ordered.

The prayer rally was held at West at 7:30 this morning.
