Wednesday, September 24th is designated as See You at the Pole. Mark your calendars and plan to join your child and other believers in his/her school to pray around the flag pole! I know from experience that your kids may not want to be seen with you or stand near you here. That’s OK. Give them some space, but follow through in setting an example and show up. Pray for the school, administrators, teachers and staff, pray specifically for students. Connect with other parents and perhaps even school personnel who share our faith.
Let me urge you again, follow through on this. Your presence is a big deal and a great encouragement to your student and others. But, even bigger than that is the fact that you’ll be praying for the school. Perhaps this experience will help us all remember to intercede on behalf of our students and schools more regularly. The real battle is in the unseen realm.
