National Day of Prayer to be held in Fountain Hills, May 2

The Fountain Hills community is invited to participate in the eighth annual National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 2.

According to a press release, the Fountain Hills Ministerial Association is sponsoring activities for the day including a prayer event at the Fountain Hills Amphitheater.

Free food will be available beginning at 5:30 p.m. and the service begins at 6:30 p.m., the release said, adding that prayer gatherings have been held across the county since 1952.

According to the release, this year’s theme is “Love One Another” and will focus on the seven centers of influence in America such as government, military, media arts, business, education, church and family, noted the release.

Deacon Dick Smith will moderate the event. Pastor Jeff Teeples will be the keynote speaker and lead in prayer experiences.

“God loves us so much and wants us to love one another too,” Mr. Teeples said. “What better way to show God what is important to us than praying with our neighbors who care about the same things.”
