Prayers for the Entertainment Industry
Greetings, HPN!

This is the month to be THANKFUL! Let's thank God for everything in our lives, from our beds and clothes to our relationship with God and for the loving family members and friends in our lives. Please also thank Him this month for all the amazing Christians in Hollywood. It's time to thank the Lord for answered prayers as He continues to bring solid, talented, loving believers into our entertainment community. We also thank God for Virginia, our recent intern, for coming on staff with HPN. Watch her intro below, and then pray with us this Thanksgiving season.
HPN's new website

HPN is very excited to announce our new website at hollywoodprayernetwork.org. It has all the same information but it's organized much more efficiently. Please look through it and enjoy all that HPN has to offer all of you, whether you're an industry professional or a prayer warrior. And let us know if there is anything more you'd like to see, but first praise God for His faithfulness in getting us this awesome new website!
Linda Holst, prayer walk host

We want to praise God for our dear friend and studio prayer walk hostess, Linda Holst, who has faithfully led prayer walks on the Warner Bros. lot for the past twenty years. We are sad to announce that she is retiring from WB and walking into a new season in her life. We thank Linda for her years of faithful service to the Lord at WB and for her leadership in leading hundreds of people around the lot to pray for the people, the projects and the issues at that studio. She is incredible and we want you all to know that she has made an eternal difference in our industry and in our world because of her heart to pray! And to show what an amazing woman she is, Linda wrote a note to us:​​​​​​​
"I've worked at Warner Bros. for 32 years in Labor Relations and Human Resources. It's approximately 20 years that I have hosted the prayer walks. What stands out is that wonderful prayer warriors have faithfully and continuously devoted their personal time to come and pray for Warner Bros. even when it's raining or over 100 degrees outside. We have seen answers to our prayers, e.g., in plot lines with Christian themes on some of the Warner Bros. television shows; in the establishment of the 9t5 Bible studies and speaker events organized by Merlinda Balmas taking place on Warner Bros. premises; in reports of camaraderie among the cast and crew on various productions; and in divine appointments at just the right time when Christians unexpectedly meet each other. I'm so thankful for the opportunity to serve Him in this way."

Let's lift up Disney's new streaming service, Disney+, which launched last week and almost immediately gained 10 million subscribers. It's attracting viewers of all demographics, but especially families looking for access to kid-friendly content. Let's continue praying for the widespread impact of the platform and all the content it offers, as well as for the staff and creators behind the scenes to have God's hand guiding them as they plan the programming that is reaching the whole world.
Pray for marketing executives

Pray for marketing executives in the entertainment industry. Their decisions, work, and creativity determine what we as audiences invest in with our money, time, and emotions. Pray through this list of 25 of the most influential marketing executives in Hollywood and ask God to give them wisdom, discernment, and the ability to see the  work of God in their lives.
Minno, faith-based streaming service

A faith-based streaming service, Minno, just rebranded and launched in order to bring children and families stories and entertainment that celebrates our faith. Pray that it streams quality programming; that the leadership is made up of people with integrity, honesty, spiritual strength, and a heart for unity; and that the decision-makers follow biblical principles in leading their business. Also pray that all audiences can enjoy wonderful stories that lift up the qualities and heart of God.
Pray for the Game Awards

We need to pray for the content and the impact of video games across the world. Video games are in the top 10 of America's highest-grossing exports, so let's pray for the 2019 Game Awards ceremony on December 12th. Games across all platforms and genres are included, all of which have been influential on millions of young people and adult consumers. Let's pray for the impact of the incredibly popular games, the creators behind them, and the communities of players who are immersed in them.
Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers

Pray for Tom Hanks as his latest role, Mister Rogers, comes to theaters this week in A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood. Tom Hanks, who believes in God, plays Fred Rogers, who was a committed Christian as well. We pray that Tom's faith will strengthen during the journey of this film, and that audiences will be deeply touched by the messages of love and acceptance that Mister Rogers taught and lived out his entire life.

"The real issue in life is not how many blessings we have, but what we do with our blessings. Some people have many blessings and hoard them. Some have few and give everything away."

HPN's YouVersion devotional on THE POWER OF THANKFULNESS is now available. Being thankful is one of the most beautiful qualities of a Christian and makes us stand out amongst our non-believing friends as they see us expressing a thankful attitude for all things in our life, for we have so much to be thankful for. This week we focus on being thankful to the Lord every day, so that we end the week overflowing with thankfulness, praise, gratitude and joy.
