It all begins with prayer! Don’t do anything else before you do this! And what better way to begin praying than See You At The Pole? SYATP is the fourth Wednesday every September. These questions will help you plan your SYATP. 

  • What time will we begin? (7am is the usual time)
  • How will we begin the event? Who will lead off?
  • Will there be other elements, such as singing, scripture reading?
  • Will we hold hands, kneel, break into groups, or stay in a large group?
  • What will we pray for or about?
  • How will we know when it’s over?
  • Do we have an alternative meeting place in case of rain?
  • Have we informed our principal about this event?
  • Have we contacted local youth groups about SYATP?
  • How can each person promote this SYATP?
