Welcome to the Santa Maria Valley Community of Prayer, hosts of the Santa Maria National Day of Prayer. We're Excited to Host the 25th Annual Event on May 5, 2022. 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. The goal of this observance is to gather people from all walks of life, cultures, and professions to agree in prayer for city, state, nation, families, and vocations.
Our Mission: To glorify God by uniting a community of believers in the Santa Maria Valley towards the Love of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. The National Day of Prayer exists to mobilize unified public and personal prayer for our country. Our mission is to encourage every individual participating the observance to pray daily for our community so as to bring Glory to God and spread unity throughout the Santa Maria Valley.
Our goal is to raise public awareness of the strong community of Judeo-Christian faith believers in the Santa Maria Valley. To inspire a network of intercessors committed to pray for unity in our cities, county, state, and nation. To be a conduit for prayer that trusts God and believes His will for us has lasting Authority.
The hosting of the National Day of Prayer event gathers people from all walks of life, cultures, and professions to agree in prayer. We work closely with our Community Leaders and Pastors to accomplish our goals.
