A few weeks ago I was explaining to my 8-year-old son about the national event that Christian teenagers participate in every year, See You At The Pole. His excitement continued to grow as I told him how students gathered together, whether a few or a crowd, to pray for our nation, their schools, reaching their friends with the Gospel of Christ, their teachers, etc.
His response, “Daddy, we HAVE to do that!”
So this past Wednesday my son and I headed to school 30 minutes early so we could pray at 7am. I was hopeful that there might be others, but my son goes to a K-8 school so I wasn’t sure if any middle school kids might be there. As it was, my son Christian and I were the only two there and it didn’t bother him a bit. We prayed together for his school and that he would have the opportunity to share the Gospel with his friends. We also asked God to provide him with other Christians at his school who would support him in his quest to reach his campus for Christ. As we said “Amen!” a friend from our church who is a teacher there showed up and was saddened that she missed our gathering.
That day when I got home Christian shared with me that the teacher saw him later that day in school and took a moment to pray with him in the copy room in the school office. As a dad, I thought that was totally cool. Thank You God for providing my son a support system at his school. May you continue to bless him with boldness and a zeal for the Gospel of your Son Jesus Christ! Would you grant him success over the next 5 years to reach his campus with Your Good News!
