Prayers for the Entertainment Industry
Greetings, HPN!

This is Halloween month – a holiday that is concerning to some and great fun for others. Would you pray that we, as believers, will have a chance to connect to neighbors we don't yet know and share the love of Jesus to all the people whom we come in contact with that night. Let's ask the Lord to use it for good for us and for everyone we get a chance to talk to.

Praying for Hollywood in Jerusalem

Last week, Karen had the opportunity to share the vision of praying for global entertainment industry professionals and networking creative believers at an All Nations Prayer Convocation in Jerusalem. It was a wonderful experience, full of prayer leaders from over 100 nations, and as she presented the idea of praying for Hollywood it was a brand new concept to many of the attendees. We praise God for the chance that Karen had to spread our passion and vision to people of prayer across the globe, and to walk the streets of Jerusalem and Bethlehem for the first time! He is so good!
Awkwafina supporting young musicians

Praise God for creative professionals, like actress and musician Awkwafina, who use their platform and resources to serve others. After learning music at a young age, Awkwafina recognized the value of investing in the creative skills of young people from varied backgrounds. Let's praise God that she is working with a nonprofit called Building Beats, providing equipment and mentorship to kids interested in music production who wouldn't otherwise have the resources. And let's pray for all of the young people whose lives will be impacted by her work as they discover the talents God has given them!
Pray for Hollywood assistants

Pray for assistants in Hollywood who are struggling with low wages and heavy workloads. This week on Twitter, the hashtag #PayUpHollywood was filled with stories of the hardships of being an assistant or support staff in the entertainment industry. Pray for the treatment and well-being of assistants and that they would experience God's provision through fair working conditions.
Pray for Patricia Heaton

Pray for actress Patricia Heaton as she launches her new CBS series, Carol's Second Act. She recently shared her personal journey with Stephen Colbert (below) as a believer working in Hollywood. Let's pray for the influence of her living out her faith in her personal and professional life as her work touches millions of people across the globe.
Disney breaks with Netflix

Showing just how competitive Hollywood is becoming as new streaming services fight for viewers, Disney has banned any advertising of Netflix shows across all of their networks. Disney has also pulled their content off of Netflix and all other streaming platforms in preparation for the November launch of their own Disney+ service. As competition between companies grows, pray for relationships within the industry to remain healthy and respectful. Pray also for executives to have wisdom and discernment as they make business decisions that will impact all of Hollywood and the global audience.
Pray for influential women in Hollywood

Pray for influential women in entertainment, music, technology, and business in Hollywood. Variety's "Women Impact Report 2019" can help give us a look into some of the most influential women in all areas of the industry, whether their names are well-known or not. Use this report as a prayer list, and pray for all of these women to know the love of Jesus and to allow God to work through them in their personal lives and careers.
Thanks so much for praying with us this week. And as always, feel free to respond with your thoughts – we love hearing from you!

With love,
Karen, Erin, Virginia, and Kim

"Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
— John 8:32
"The world can no longer be left to mere diplomats, politicians and business leaders. They have done the best they could, no doubt. But this is an age for spiritual heroes - a time for men and women to be heroic in their faith and in spiritual character and power."
Dallas Willard
HPN's newest YouVersion devotional on GOD'S HEART FOR HOLLYWOOD is now available. This week we're focusing on understanding and praying for Hollywood. Christians in Hollywood are on the front lines of ministry and they need prayer and support. So, our prayer is that you will catch the vision of the importance and global impact of Hollywood and choose to pray for the people there as you watch films, TV shows, hear music, and play video games.
