Healing for Our Friends
Keep praying for our HPN members with cancer: Brenda, Monsita, Edie, Jen, Jill and Marion. Brenda is finishing up her chemo this month and we praise God for that! God is faithful and He is the Healer, so we anticipate great news for all six of these wonderful Hollywood women of God!  

Justin Bieber's Faith
We praise God for Justin Bieber’s bold faith. He loves Jesus and is embracing the love, guidance and fellowship of his pastors and his Christian friends. May he and his Mom and friends have a great time of celebrating his Savior this Christmas.
Justin's Faith Journey

Beverlee Dean's Family and Friends
Pray for the family and friends of Manager Beverlee Dean, who passed away on November 21st. Beverlee was active in the Christian Hollywood community and was a nurturing “mom” to young professionals with a front door that was never locked. For more info on this influential woman of God, click below.  
Beverlee's Legacy
Ron and Clint Howard's Father
Pray for Ron Howard and his brother, actor Clint Howard, who lost their father Rance just after Thanksgiving. They were all very close and it’s hard to lose a loved ones over the Holidays. May the Lord give them strength and peace this Christmas and lead them closer to Jesus's unconditional love and hope.
Rance's Legacy
Pray for Healing and Redemption
Hollywood needs your prayers. We are seeing one man after another being accused of sexual harassment, abuse and/or rape and we believe that our prayers are inviting God in to heal the predators and the victims of this massive devastation. We ask that you join us in praying that the Christians will use this window of opportunity to pray, reach out to the hurting, angry and fearful people, and to be a part of bringing people to a saving knowledge of Jesus. We don’t want to miss this chance to be a part of the Lord “turning this into good!” We already see industry decision-makers cutting ties with these men who have been accused of sexual harassment and misconduct, and reaching out to the women with help and support. Pray through the fallout of the accusations and for the cast and crew of the shows and movies affectedAnd continue to pray for the female and male victims, that they will find healing as they speak out and reach out. May they feel the safety and freedom to discuss what they've gone through and how to move forward. 
Top Shows and Films
A fun end-of-the-year prayer for all of you is to pray through the Hollywood Reporter lists of the Top 100 TV Shows of all time and the Top 100 Films of all time, from 2014 and 2015. It’s incredible how these TV shows and films have shaped our culture and the world. As you look through these amazing lists, would you pray for the people who created these old shows and the people currently creating movies and TV series and everyone involved, from the casts in front of the camera to the crews behind the camera. They are all needed to make it happen and they all either know or need Jesus! And then you may want to re-watch some of them with your family over the holidays!

Pray for the Sundance Film Festival
Next month, from January 18 – 28th, the Sundance Film Festival in Sundance, Utah will screen 110 new films from 29 countries, with the hope of selling them and/or distributing them to independent distributors and studios. 99 of the slated films are world premieres so it’s an important time for our country’s independent filmmakers. Would you pray for the filmmakers and the films that are best to be chosen, and for the Hollywood decision-makers who will be there.

Pray for the Global Film Industry
We are so aware in Hollywood that the film industry reaches across the globe. For example, filmmaking has become a key contributor to the New Zealand economy. The NZ film industry has been growing ever since Peter Jackson settled in to shoot “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, and now film and TV production is becoming a major source of income for the country. Let’s pray for the filmmakers in countries all over the world to come in contact with the loving grace, forgiveness and hope of Jesus as they work on films, TV shows, songs, video games and internet shorts that touch hearts and shape people around the world.

Help us cover Industry Professionals in Prayer
HPN is in need of MALE pray-ers who are willing to pray for one male industry professional as their Media Missionary. We have 10 male industry professionals waiting to be matched with a man of prayer. If you are a man (or even a grandma), would you be willing to add one more person to your prayer list? Or, are you in a men's group and could ask the members to be a part of our One-To-One Prayer Partnerships? Can you ask any men at your church? We would SO appreciate you helping us meet this need. Click below for more info.

Attend Live TV Tapings with HPN
HPN invites all of you to attend live TV show tapings in L.A! Just email and Erin will put you on our list. She’ll send out notices throughout the year and you just let her know when you’d like to attend. We also supply specific prayer lists for each show so that you can both watch the process of shooting a live show, and pray for all of the people involved in the production. Join us in 2018!
Join YouVersion: HPN Prayer Devotional
Join the YouVersion App for the Hollywood Prayer Journal Devotional. Recently we posted a 7 day devotional on Christmas! More great topics are already available to every HPN member and friend. Just go to YouVersion and type in "Hollywood Prayer Network"!
HPN's Christmas Devotional
We would love to end this month’s email with our heartfelt desire to invite you to be both a part of HPN’s PRAYING TEAM and our GIVING TEAM. Would you prayerfully consider donating any size financial gift so that we can end our year with enough to launch us into 2018. We hate asking for money, so we are just praying that the people who are meant to give will read this and the people who don’t want to or can’t, will just pass over this, knowing that we love ALL OF YOU, regardless of your involvement. We truly just want to pray for the people in Hollywood and the global entertainment industry, but it costs money to make that happen. So, please remember HPN and be assured that we put every dollar into reaching our prayer warriors outside of Hollywood and the entertainment, arts and media professionals in Hollywood and around the world!

We want to thank you so much for YOU, your faithful prayers and for being a part of HPN. We trust that you will have a joyful Christmas and a New Year celebration filled with anticipation of all that the Lord has in store for 2018! We look forward to talking to you again in January.
With love and thanks,
Karen, Erin and Kim
