See You at the Pole "IF" is Wednesday, September 25
Before school, students will join together at their school’s flagpole to pray for their friends, families, teachers, school, city, state and nation to God for the 29th annual See You at the Pole (SYATP) on Wednesday, September 25. SYATP is a student-initiated, student-organized and student-led event. This year's SYATP theme is "IF" and the scripture verse is 2 Chronicles 7:14 - "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
"'IF' is a small word with big ramifications. It’s a choice for hope; a promise that can’t be broken, but hinges on our obedience to bow our knees to the Lordship of Jesus Christ so that God can pour out his mercy on this generation. 'IF' only we were convinced. I believe God can save our families. I believe He can restore relationships. I believe God can define our purpose. I believe God can bring unity and heal our nation. The question is 'do you?' The word 'IF' has a personal meaning now. Join me in prayer and make your voice count to move the heart of God to see revival now in this day, in this time!"
- Debi DeBoer, Ministry Director for First Priority Greater Birmingham
