Please come share in the beautiful interfaith Event celebrating National Day of Prayer. For the third, consecutive year a group of local, diverse people compromised of the Religious Liberty Council will come together for a multi-faith service at the Ogden LDS Tabernacle.

Those included on the Religious Liberty Council are as follows: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Stake President Paul Mackley, Pastor Dave Duncan, Dorothy Sjoblom, Stacey Giatras, Chris Battrick and John Reynolds.

 Dorothy Sjoblom of North Ogden is among those of the Weber Religious Liberty Council who plan and carry out this event.  She and her daughter, Stacey Giatras, who directs the multi-faith choir, both bring forth their talents and inspiration to create and uplifting program for all.

This year, National Day of Prayer will take place on Thursday, May 4th, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.  Everyone is welcome to attend at the Ogden LDS Tabernacle located on 350 East 22nd Street Ogden, Utah.

Additionally, there will be Pastor Dave Duncan of Valley View Baptist Church in North Ogden who will again deliver one of his spiritually elevating talks on the benefits of Prayer. 

The choir will sing Battle Hymn of the Republic and I Need Thee Every Hour led by Stacey Giatras. The keynote speaker is Representative Brad Wilson, Majority Leader of the Utah House.  Chris Battrick of Pleasant View will also welcome everyone and introduce the program. 

In preparation for this event The Religious Liberty Council is planning to mail out roughly 40+ manila envelopes to LDS Stake Presidents (around 200 wards). Other church leaders in the area will receive letters of information and an invitation to attend the May 4th event at the Ogden Tabernacle.

Dr. Paul Mackley, has this to say about the National Day of Prayer: “Prayer is a fundamental form of private and public worship which crosses all ethnic, cultural, and faith backgrounds.”

Please come and share in this special night emphasizing the purpose and meaning of prayer. It holds great importance in our lives no matter our religious backgrounds.
