BURLEY, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - Community members in Burley are organizing a prayer rally Saturday to bring people together who seek peace in current times.

Hakes said the event is for anyone who is seeking peace during these tough times.
“I hope that people from everywhere, that this word will go out to everybody who is seeking peace, who wants peace in their lives, who doesn’t want division, who wants, who wants to love their neighbor, who wants to love the community, who wants to be loved, everybody,” Hakes said.
He also encourages people to bring their own American Flags.
