On Thursday, September 24, thirty minutes before school commenced, thousands of Christian students across southeast Florida gathered at their public school’s flagpoles to pray. The initiative was connected to the larger national “See You at the Pole” prayer movement. This year marked the 25th anniversary of this student-initiated and student-led movement. What started as one school in Burleson, Texas, in 1990 has now spread across the entire nation.
UNITED was this year’s theme, inspired from Acts 1:14, where we learn “they all met together and were constantly UNITED in prayer.” Like the early church, students were united in prayer, interceding for their leaders, schools, and families. Students united, asking God to bring moral and spiritual awakening to their campuses and country. First Priority clubs in nearly 200 public middle and high schools across our region helped promote the prayer initiative and served as a catalyst to support the movement in our region.
