STILL My Favorite Day Of The Year!!

 Wednesday, September 23, 2020

Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.  Matthew 18:19-20

Still My Favorite Day of the Year – SYATP 2020

Motherhood is such a bittersweet dance of give and take. If we do our job right, our kids move on and live successful lives. The bittersweet part is the letting go. We are happy they have launched out into the world, yet our heart aches for all the time that is now gone. One of my favorite days of the year as a mother was always See You At The Pole – a day designated for students all over the world to gather at their school flagpoles and pray together. Twenty-Twenty has sure given them some good content to pray over!

SYATP is my favorite day for two reasons:

·   It is my favorite day because I love that my kids always wanted to be at school at 6:00 am on those days so they could participate in prayer at the flagpoles with other kids. They were always involved in some way – leading or providing music – so they had to be there early to set up and get prepared. Seeing all the kids gathered around the flagpoles and in groups praying together is an awesome sight.

·   The other reason it was always my favorite day is because I love to worship. Corporate worship is the best in a worship center full of kids who love the Lord, singing their hearts out, and excited about exalting Him. On the night of SYATP there is always a big worship rally where all the kids in the area come together and share a time of praise and worship followed by a speaker. All in all it is a great day.

You may not have kids, or your kids may be grown, and you are far removed from what your grandkids are involved in, but as the body of Christ we should rejoice at this display of this generation stepping out in faith and standing up for what they believe in. They are making the commitment to be there early because it is important to them.  This is a real time of prayer – not a social event for them. We are all entering a time in history when it is more important than ever to take a stand.

Pray for the youth and young adults of our nation today. Pray for Holy boldness for them and for protection and safety. Thank God for the ones that are faithful and committed and ask that He use them to lead the way for the others. Prayer is a powerful tool against the enemy. You may not be around a flagpole today, but we can still all raise our voices in prayer to Him for our communities, our church, our children and their future, and for God to use us for His glory during this tense time in our history.


And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we
have the requests that we have asked of him. 1 John 5:14-15
