Unity is the theme for this year’s National Day of Prayer. Several from the area, including those from various ethnic groups, will read scriptures and lead in prayers for our military, our government, our education, our businesses, our churches and our families.

All are welcome to come to this special free event sponsored by the Sun Lakes Women’s Connection. The SunBird Golf Resort is on the south side of Riggs Road between McQueen and Cooper at 6250 S. SunBird Blvd., Chandler.
