Christian Students Gather for 'See You At the Pole'

 Students plan to gather and pray at schools throughout the world on Wednesday for See You at the Pole Day, an event in which young people ask for God's blessings on their schools and prepare themselves to show His love and grace on campus.

SYATP Day is the centerpiece of the Global Week of Student Prayer, which began Sunday and ends Saturday. The theme of this year's SYATP Day is "IfThen," a reference to 2 Chronicles 7:14, which SYATP organizers have abbreviated in promotional materials to say, "If we pray, seek, turn; then God hears, forgives, heals."

"The idea is that our nation desperately needs moral and spiritual awakening, but God's given us an idea, an understanding in His Word, about how we get there," said Doug Clark, the event's promotion coordinator and director of field ministries for the National Network of Youth Ministries.
