Welcome to the
Santa Maria Valley Community of Prayer
Hosts of the Santa Maria National Day of Prayer for over 20 years
Santa Maria Valley Community of Prayer, Inc.
Our primary purpose is to host an Annual National Day of Prayer Event in the Santa Maria Valley. The National Day of Prayer is an interdenominational observance of Judeo-Christian beliefs.
Our Mission: To unite our community towards the Love of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, and to serve the faith community on the Central Coast of California, the Santa Maria Valley. Centered on the Lord Jesus Christ, the National Day of Prayer exists to mobilize unified public and personal prayer for our country. Our mission is to encourage each individual attending the observance to pray daily for our community so as to bring Glory to God and spread unity throughout the Santa Maria Valley.
Goals and Objectives:
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 for city, state, nation, families, and vocations.
The Santa Maria National Day of Prayer is run entirely by volunteers and funded exclusively through generous donations.
Police, fire, medical, clergy, merchants, school officials, community and youth organizations are invited to assist in this memorable day.
We work closely with our Community Leaders and Pastors to accomplish our goals.

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.
