Students Around the World Meet at Their Flagpoles to Pray
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Holly Meade, and BarbWire.com Founder Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
Last week students around the world met around the flagpoles of their respective schools. And last week was a week that students also around the world gathered together to pray for their schools, for their communities, for their nations, and for the world.
We’re going to be talking about this movement among students on Faith and Freedom.
Mat Staver: Well, last week was the theme “Fix Our Eyes” taken from “…let us fix our eyes on Jesus” from Hebrews 12:2. It was the annual “See You at the Pole.
