Let me just tell you, that as the Georgia State Coordinator for the National Day of Prayer, this year, I am going to meet some GREAT people.
This week we look at Habersham County and 8 events, over 12 hours, in 7 towns.

Habersham County, and Myrna Fouts
Billed as 7 Cities in 12 hours, County Coordinator Myrna Fouts was on the road early, with Betty Gober, her assistant these last few years. Another important team member, Jan Garrison helped supply key speakers and pray-ers, including former Congressman Doug Collins.
Myrna has been doing the National Day of Prayer for over 30 years, some years, by herself alone.
My goal for this article is that you see this little lady’s creativity.
Did I mention that Myrna suffered a ruptured colon in early April? And yet she was able to organize and participate in the entire 12 hours of prayer, from 7am to 7pm.
They spent an hour and a half in each event. Below we will look at each event’s specifics.
Thank you Betty and Jan for your support of Myrna, and Habersham County and the National Day of Prayer.
Here’s What the Day Looked Like:
7:00am to 8:30am – At Home, intercessors prayed over the 7 mountains
8:30am to 10:00am – In Tallulah Falls, where every single person in the education system was prayed for by name
10:00am to 11:30am – In Clarkesville, the county seat, pastors prayed, local choirs sang, and the VFW was there with a 21 gun salute, and taps
11:30am to 1:00pm – In Cornelia, where the train goes right thru the center of town, 10 government officials, from the Mayor to the Sherriff to Council Members to Doug Collins prayed over the government
1:00pm to 2:30pm – In Demorest, a small town with a college, they prayed specifically for education and then a hospital employee shared incredibly moving Covid stories
2:30pm to 4:00pm – In Baldwin, the small town that recently lost their police force, much prayer was lifted up for that specific situation and then an addiction ministry located there was prayed for too
4:00pm to 5:30pm – In Alto, they met at City Hall with several preachers lifting up Arrendale Prison, also located there
5:30pm to 7:00pm – In Mt Airy, the ladies wound up their long day with prayer for churches, families, government, etc. and there was a special emphasis on families with missing children, then the day ended with a 21 gun salute.
I don’t mind telling you how tired I am writing this, Myrna and Betty must have gone home and collapsed!
Thank you Myrna for you leadership.
Myrna shared something interesting about the evolution of her efforts in Habersham County. I hope some of you will take her idea to heart.
A number of years ago Myrna noticed that she had reached a peak with how many people would show up at a church, OTHER THAN ONE’S OWN CHURCH, to celebrate the National Day of Prayer, and that’s when she started thinking outside the box.
Mix it up, Coordinators! Think outside the box.
