Prayers for the Entertainment Industry
Hi HPN members,

Welcome to our second HPN Call Sheet. Thank you all so much for your helpful feedback on the last one! It's shorter, faster, and hopefully easier to read. So let's jump right in and pray for the people, projects, and issues in Hollywood - the world's most influential mission field!

We recently hosted a Producers Fellowship Breakfast where 34 producers gathered to build community, network, and encourage one another. There were veterans meeting younger producers and all of them love Jesus. We are so thankful for all that God is doing in Hollywood and we want you to know that your prayers are making a difference!
Speaking out about God

Celebrities who love Jesus are boldly speaking out. Let's praise God for His children who love Him, regardless of what other people think, and yet share their faith with gentleness and reverence.

We join Chris Pratt in believing that Hollywood isn't anti-Christian, once they understand it's not about politics, it's about Jesus. READ>>

Denzel Washington spoke out boldly about his faith in a commencement speech, telling graduates to "put God first." WATCH>>

Pop singer Tori Kelly released a new album heavily influenced by gospel music, and made a video with I Am Second sharing some of her testimony. WATCH>>

HPN doesn't know the details of Tiffany Haddish's faith – but she, too, shared Jesus with her audience when she prayed on stage at her film premiere last week. READ>>
Pray for musicians

Pray for the effect of The Music Modernization Act, which recently passed unanimously in the U.S. Congress. The music industry, which imploded over 10 years ago, has wanted this bipartisan legislation passed for several years as it will update music licensing rights to ensure that songwriters and copyright owners will be paid properly for their work. Will you ask the Lord to intervene in the struggling American music business in support of the composers and songwriters.
Pray for The Good Place and Kristen Bell

As The Good Place starts its new season as one of the top series on television right now, let’s pray for the people on that show: the writers, producers, directors, actors and the crew. We ALL need more of Jesus in our hearts and lives! As you pray, lift up Kristen Bell as you read about her broken past with her religious mom.
Pray for the American Music Awards

The American Music Awards are next week, so join us in prayer for all the nominees and performers that are so influential in the music industry. We want to pray for each of them to know God deeply, and for their work to reflect God’s love to their large and often young audiences. And pray for these musicians to know their worth in God and not in their work when you see their names in the news and on social media after the AMAs.
Pray for miracles at Hollywood Arise

Pray for the Lord to do a miracle in Hollywood this month. The Lord has been opening up doors and windows of opportunities for His children to make an eternal difference here. Please pray for God to be even more bold, more obvious and more miraculous in how He touches the people, the projects and the issues with His love. And let’s pray for God to show up at Hollywood Arise, the upcoming 72 hours of prayer in the center of Hollywood from Oct. 12th-14th.
Thanks so much for praying with us. We'll have more for you in two weeks!

— Karen, Erin, Kim, and Virginia

Jesus was all about storytelling, and so is Hollywood. How do you tell your story?
"The engine of creativity is imagination."
— Caleb Monroe
"See, the Lord has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship, to devise artistic designs, to work in gold and silver and bronze, in cutting stones for setting, and in carving wood, for work in every skilled craft."
— Exodus 35:30-33
HPN's newest 7-day devotional is now available on the YouVersion app. This week our topic is SERVING. See how we can be serving God and serving others like Jesus modeled for us over 2,000 years ago.
