One group celebrated National Day of Prayer with Springdale Mayor Doug Sprouse.
The 10th Annual Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast was held Thursday morning at Cross Church. The event included music and readings from pastors and community leaders.
Also speaking at the breakfast was former razorback and NFL running back, Peyton Hillis.
Sprouse believes that moving the breakfast to a different church each year creates better participation.
“It’s not only the thing you’re praying about, but it’s just the unity that you have with others,” Sprouse said.
The Prayer Breakfast is the largest event of it’s kind in Northwest Arkansas. All proceeds go to the Children’s Safety Center in Springdale.
