Prayers for the Entertainment Industry
Dear HPN friends,

It's already the middle of July and we're hoping your summer is relaxing, joyful and prayerful! We have some great things to pray for this week and want you to continue remembering the summer blockbusters that bring in millions to theatres! Let's pray...
The rise of ministry in Hollywood

God is moving in Hollywood and the world is noticing. Praise God that a movement of God is sweeping our city and our industry, and please keep praying for His continued presence because He is answering our prayers!
Update on WGA/agencies conflict

The conflict between the Writers Guild and Hollywood agencies is still ongoing, so please continue to pray for wisdom and discernment during the lengthy back-and-forth. Thousands of professional relationships have been severed and now federal lawsuits are being filed, so it's a stressful and drawn out process with uncertain conclusions. Pray for God's peace to intervene and for personal relationships to be healed and maintained while the business discussions continue.
Mourning young actor Cameron Boyce

Pray for the friends, family and fans of 20-year-old Disney actor Cameron Boyce, who passed away on July 6th due to ongoing struggles with epilepsy. Many industry pros and fans are grieving the loss, especially because he was so young. Let's invite the Lord to come into these people's hearts with comfort, so that they can experience His presence and His love.
San Diego Comic-Con

Pray for the exhibitors, presenters, creators, and attendees at Comic-Con this week, from July 17th-22nd. It's the 50th anniversary of the world's most famous fan convention of superheroes and science fiction in graphic novels, books, films and more! This annual convention gives us insight into the people and projects that are influential today, so let's pray for God's love and beauty to be tangible for everyone attending and being impacted by the weekend. Use this events schedule as a prayer list and pray over some of the screenings and panels. 
Netflix studios in the U.K.

Netflix has created a new film and TV production hub in the U.K. close to London. Let's pray for the physical space, sound stages, offices, and facilities to be filled with God's presence. This new production hub also reminds us that there are pieces of "Hollywood" that exist all around the world, and that the mission field of entertainment is not just a city, but truly global!
Original digital content on Quibi

Pray for Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman, who have partnered to launch a new streaming platform just for mobile devices called Quibi. The platform will launch April 6, 2020, with 7,000 units of original programming, including series and 2-hour movies, to be watched daily in 7-10 minute segments. Pray for wisdom in all the decisions being made, and for healthy and genuine programming and professional relationships to prevail during the development of Quibi.
Thanks so much for praying with us this week. As always, please feel free to respond – we love to hear your thoughts!

With love,
Karen, Erin, Virginia, and Kim

HPN's newest YouVersion devotional on YOUR MISSION FIELD is now available. Have you ever thought of yourself as a missionary? Have you ever defined the place where you live or work as your mission field? This week we're going to focus on God's plan for all of us to be missionaries in our own mission field. We don't have to go overseas. We can spread the gospel to the people around us, just by loving them!
