One Voice Children’s Choir sings as members of many faiths in Utah County gathered together for the annual National Day of Prayer in Provo Thursday, May 1, 2014. The National Day of Prayer service brought together 40 different faith groups in Utah County and focused on this year’s theme, “Freedom of Prayer.” Prayer is important because it gives individuals guidance that they cannot get from themselves or others who are “just as fouled up as we are,” said keynote speaker Linda Walton, a chaplain at Utah Valley University. Instead, they are able to learn about right and wrong from God. “If we don’t communicate with God then we’ve got a problem,” Walton said. She helped start the celebration 20 years ago as part of the Utah Valley Ministerial Association and has worked to include all the faith traditions in Utah Valley, even those who consider themselves to be atheist or agnostic.
