See You At the Pole 2018 – Broken
They came seeking God and little did they know how powerfully He was about to move. On Saturday night their hearts were penetrated like never before, when they became broken before God and burdened for their friends. Compelled to pray, they drove to three different schools that night. Not knowing exactly what to do, they went to the school flagpoles and prayed for their friends, schools, and leaders.
Those students had no idea how God would use their obedience. God used what He did among those teenagers and others who were holding similar prayer meetings at their schools to birth a vision in the hearts of youth leaders across Texas.
See You At The Pole™
The vision was that students throughout Texas would follow these examples and meet at their school flagpoles to pray simultaneously. Only God had envisioned how many students would step up to the challenge. Reports came into toll-free number for days after the first event. A few months later, a group of youth ministers from all over the country gathered together for a national conference in Colorado. Many of them reported that their students had heard about the prayer movement in Texas and were equally burdened for their schools.
No other events had been planned, but it was clear that students across the country would be creating their own national day of student prayer. There was no stopping them.

Student groups, individual churches, or a group of local churches can host a rally. Some suggestions for a rally: A pre-pole rally is a great time for you to meet with other students from your campus to pray for the event and to go over the pre-pole checklist. Hold the rally sometime close to the event.
Things you may include: If your rally represents two or more schools, then break up into groups per school. How will you handle distractions such as traffic noise, onlookers, etc.?
How will you begin the event? Who will lead off? Will there be other elements, such as singing or reading Scripture? Will you hold hands, kneel, break into small groups, or remain in a large group, etc.?
What will you pray for? Will students pray out loud or will there be silent prayer?
