See You at the Pole 2012 Tomorrow at JWMS and CCHS

Last year students at JWMS gathered indoors due to rain.

See You at the Pole, the annual student-led prayer event held at schools across America, is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 26.

Students will gather before the day’s classes around the school flagpole to pray for their school, classmates, teachers and their communities. The 2012 See You at the Pole™ theme is Awaken and the Scripture is Ephesians 3:14–21—“For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father… I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being so that Christ may dwell in your hearts…And I pray that you… grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and…that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine…’”

Events in Clarke County will include gatherings at Johnson-William Middle School and the Clarke County High School. Students will meet at 7:15 AM at JWMS and 7:30 AM at CCHS.

See You at the Pole™, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at their school. More than two decades later, millions around the world pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September. These gatherings are simple prayer rallies where students meet at the school flagpole before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God.


  1. Richard Beverley Whiting was God’s blessing to my mother and me. He was born on September 26, 1919. My stepfather celebrates his 93rd birthday on this day of student led global prayer. He was born and raised in Clarke County and owned the Berryville Newstand from 1956-1979. Mr. Whiting was a World War II army veteran and has been quite active in the American Legion, Lions Club and Grace Episcopal Church.. He is a connection to the past, as he remembers his grandfather Province Mc Cormick, who had his Clarke County house burned down by the yankees during the US Civil War. The world is in turmoil and the children are the future. May God answer their prayer requests.

      That’s a delightful sentiment, Sam, and a good reason to say a prayer.

      I met your stepfather when I first came to Clarke. He may be one of the most friendly guys I’ve ever met, and he clearly helped instill you with a lifetime gift of curiosity. Good for him, and for you; and your mother, no doubt, as well.
