RCS Gathers for See You at the Pole
Submitted by Alyssa Kiefer in RCS Highlights on September 26, 2018
When asked how to start a revival, a popular British evangelist said, “Go home. Lock yourself in your room. Kneel down in the middle of the floor, and with a piece of chalk, draw a circle around yourself. There on your knees, pray fervently and brokenly that God would start a revival within that chalk circle.” On Wednesday, September 25, MSHS students did just that, gather in a circle (but together) in the quad to pray as a community for their school, neighborhoods, and leaders as they unite with students around the country who do the same and announce their love for Jesus together.
For over 25 years, See You at the Pole (SYATP) events have united students around the world to gather at school flagpoles and pray for their schools and communities. RCS students and teachers stood together Wednesday morning at the MSHS to join with other Christians around the world praying for our nation, president, city, county, teachers, students, law enforcement, firefighters, EMTs, and for the lost. The SYATP movement began in 1990 by a group of Texas students looking for a simple way to express their faith together, and since then, September 23rd has been marked as a day where students gather to unite around the world in prayer. #syatp #seeyouatthepole
