ODENVILLE — Students across the county, the state and the nation took part in See You at the Pole 2012 “Awaken” last week.
The annual Global Day of Student Prayer was Sept. 26, and millions of teenagers across the world invited their classmates to gather around their school’s flagpole for a time of prayer for the 22nd annual “See You at the Pole.”
At St. Clair County High School in Odenville, Ashlee Tucker Lambert said about 50 students, teachers, pastors and youth pastors, parents and business leaders were in attendance. Lambert is coordinator with First Priority Greater Birmingham, and was at SCCHS that morning.
“Levi Dorsett started by talking about the theme of See You At The Pole,” Lambert said. “He then opened with prayer. Then everyone had an opportunity to pray silently and out loud.”
“It’s cool to see high school students come together around the flagpole to pray for our school,” Dorsett said. “We hope it won’t be a one-time prayer event, but that we’ll continue to do this every week.”
Dorsett added that two students were saved that morning at See You At The Pole, while another student rededicated her life to the Lord.
“See You at the Pole is something we can all do and everyone around the world comes together to pray for one another,” said Sidney, a St. Clair County High School student.
Dorsett is president of Saints for Christ, a group of students who meet every Thursday morning at 7:30 a.m. in the SCCHS media center.
“At our meeting Oct. 4, we had 64 students in attendance, one of the largest crowds we have ever had,” Dorsett said. “Saints for Christ has been meeting ever since I can remember.”
Actually, the founder of Saints for Christ is now a teacher at St. Clair County High School. Her name is Mary Kimball Busbee.
“When I was a junior at SCCHS in 1984, I started Saints for Christ because we did not have a Christian club,” Busbee. “It was fun times. I am glad it has continued.”
