At a planning meeting of the Sevier Valley Interfaith Council held April 14 at the Richfield Stake Center, it was decided that the Interfaith Devotional on the National Day of Prayer will be Thursday May 7 from 8-9 am at the Sevier County Fairgrounds Conference Center (410 East 200 South, Richfield). There will be prayers by local ecclesiastical leaders for our nation, our communities, our families and prayers of gratitude. The guest speaker will be Gary Carlston, President of Snow College.

The National Day of Prayer is an event which calls on people of all faiths in the United States to pray for the nation and its leaders. This Day was signed into law by President Harry Truman on April 17, 1952. President Ronald Reagan amended the law in 1988 designating the first Thursday of May each year as the official day of observance. This is the third year this event has been held in the Sevier Valley.
