See You at the Pole, a day of student prayer, takes place at the flagpole of many high schools and middle schools across our country and around the world. This day was first organized in 1990 by a group of ten high school students; now millions of students participate by meeting at their school’s flagpole on the fourth Wednesday of every September. This year, Wednesday, September 25, is the day students will meet.
Adults can participate in the day of prayer as well. AG Women sponsors “See You at the Altar,” encouraging women’s groups across the nation to meet at their church at the same time the students are meeting at the flagpole.
Here are some things that the Assemblies of God National Youth Alive ministry encourages adults to pray for:
Pray for the school.
Students are in the most strategic position to reach their schools with the message of the gospel.
Pray for effective campus missionaries and clubs.
Pray that everyone on campus will receive a clear presentation of the gospel.
Pray for the safety of students and staff.
Pray for the community.
Students' lives are influenced by more than just their schools.
Pray that God would bless their homes with peace.
Pray for safety in the places students like to hang out.
Pray for the businesses that are in position to have a positive influence on students.
Pray for the church.
Students who make a decision to follow Christ must be incorporated into a healthy, Bible-believing church.
Pray that students will be loved and accepted by your church.
Pray that the adults in your church will become role models and spiritual mentors.
Pray for all the ministries in your church that deal with students.

And Youth Alive sponsors Prayer Zone Partners, https://youth.ag.org/Participate/Youth-Alive/Prayer-Zone-Partners, which is a strategy for adults to pray in an ongoing way, rather than just this one day, for the students and schools in their area.
