Tomorrow is the Day!

They all met together and were constantly UNITED in prayer. —Acts 1:14

See You At The Pole (SYATP) is my very favorite day of the year.  This is the day when kids from elementary through college gather at the flagpoles of their schools and pray.  I love that there is this band of Christian kids worldwide that are standing together in prayer on this special day at this special time. This year the theme is United.  They are united as a group and especially during this time they know that they are not alone.  They can connect with other students that they didn’t know were Christians before.   There is power in being united. Often a group of adults/parents may be seen praying in support of the students nearby or at a church, city hall or their places of work.
This is the 25th year of SYATP and this year more than ever it seems to be so important.  Our country, and our country’s youth need prayer more than ever now.  They are the next generation of leaders in this country that seems to have desperately lost its way. 
The day ends with an awesome Worship Rally at churches across the Nation.  At North Side Baptist Church we call the worship rally Pole Vault and it involves churches from all over Parker County.  There will be a guest speaker, Corey Devivo, and a great time of praise and worship featuring our own Praise and Worship band.  There is nothing more exciting to a mother than to see kids involved in a movement like SYATP.  Seeing them band together as one around the flagpole, lifting up each other and the issues of our world to their Father in Heaven is an amazing experience.  Then to see so many come together in worship that evening is a great experience as well. 
Remember the kids tomorrow as they gather to pray and say a prayer for them.  Pray for their safety as they gather.  Pray that God will turn our Nation back towards Him and that eyes will be opened.  Pray for respect to return.  Pray that police officers will be safe so they can do their job and keep the world safe.  Pray for people to have enough of sin and repent.  Pray for these kids.  They are facing a hard world to be an adult Christian in. 
If you feel like having a great worship experience then join us for the Pole Vault Worship Rally tomorrow night at 7:00 in the Worship Center here at North Side Baptist Church.
