The 2016 Monumental Hour of Prayer was held on Saturday, July 23 at 10 a.m. in the Mt. Rushmore Amphitheater. Under a beautiful blue sky and with a light cool breeze this Hour of Prayer was packed full of inspiration. The hour’s Emcee, FHA Board Chair Scott Craig, did a superb job as did our guest speaker, John Boenschein, of Colorado Springs and Vice Chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force.
Amy Wagner, FHA Advisory Council Member and SD state National Day of Prayer Coordinator wrote of this event: “Hearing John Bornschein speak about the history of our nation and hearing the prayers by Craig Moore, Dale Bartscher and Phillip Shivley was a moment of significance not only at our Mt Rushmore National Memorial, but it was a moment of significance for our nation. It was a platform for God to be recognized and honored as God was honored through repentance and recognition.”
