Students, Staff Gather in Prayer Around Campus Flagpole

Posted on Wednesday, September 26, 2012 [11:23 PM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Connor Wooten usually does not get out of bed until around 8:30 on a weekday morning.

But on Wednesday, Sept. 26, the Lindsey Wilson College student was outside on campus more than an hour early than his usual time. Wooten was one of 33 LWC students and staff members who participated in See You at the Pole. The students gathered at 7:30 a.m. CT for about 26 minutes at the flagpole on the Campus Quadrangle of the A.P. White Campus.

The two-decade-old national event is an annual gathering of students who meet in the morning in front of their local school flagpole for a time of prayer and reflection. See You at the Pole is usually held on the fourth Wednesday of September.

For this year's event at LWC, Wooten said he and his classmates prayed for this fall's political candidates.

"We prayed that our leaders will be open to the will of God and be moldable by his hands," said Wooten, of Edmonton, Ky.

LWC student Clint Berry of Henderson, Ky., said starting a weekday off with prayer sets the day apart from others.

"It really makes you refocus on your purpose -- the commitment we have as Christians to our nation and for all the people in our nation," Berry said.
