National Day of Prayer observances will be held at various locations across Habersham County on Thursday, May 4. Described as a rolling prayer revival, the day will include stops in all seven cities in the county.

The day will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the parking lot at Tallulah Falls Middle School and will end at 5:30 p.m. with a gathering at Mt. Airy Town Hall. In between, there will be stops at the following times and locations:

  • 10 a.m., Clarkesville – downtown gazebo, North Washington Street
  • 11:30 a.m., Demorest – Demorest Baptist Church, 755 Central Avenue
  • 1 p.m., Cornelia – Holcomb’s Office Supply parking lot, 484 Town Center Drive
  • 2:30 p.m., Baldwin – Life Church, 110 Church Street
  • 4 p.m., Alto – The River Church, 885 Alto-Mud Creek Road

The community is invited to attend any or all of the gatherings to share in fellowship and pray for the county and country.

This year’s theme is drawn from James 5:16 in the Bible: “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.
