The mission of the Community of Prayer, Inc. is to plan and to help unite our community towards the love of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, and 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 America.


"Fasting and prayer are religious exercises; the enjoining them an act of discipline. Every religious society has a right to determine for itself the time for these exercises, and the objects proper for them, according to their own particular tenets; and right can never be safer than in their hands, where the Constitution has deposited it."

—Thomas Jefferson, 1808

The First Thursday

of May

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. Community of Prayer, Inc. is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. Community of Prayer, Inc. represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the (novices and postulants and seminarians), as well as our priests and deacons.
