Prayers for the Entertainment Industry
Dear HPN members,

Happy April and a Very Happy Easter week! It’s a fabulous time to celebrate our faith through the resurrection of Jesus. So, let’s fully embrace the meaning of this week as we pray for the people in Hollywood who have not yet met Him. Whatever anyone is going through, there is hope in Jesus for “He has risen!” Please celebrate Easter with our video The Easter Story, recorded from around the world! Let’s pray - -
Cabin Fever Game Night at HPN!

HPN hosted a “Cabin fever” Game Night two weeks ago and it was a huge success.  40 young creative professionals gathered on zoom to build friendships, have fun playing games and connecting as a family of believing Creatives!  We praise God for what He’s doing in our community!
Game Night
Jennifer Garner

Praise God for actress Jennifer Garner, who shared why church is so important to her and her family, saying that it “just really starts us off right”. We can continue to pray for Jennifer, for opportunities for her to share her faith, and that churches would continue to re-open, since in-person community is so important!

Jessica Walter
Jessica Walter

Let’s pray for the family, friends and fans of Jessica Walter, actress from “Arrested Development” who died on March 25th at age 80.  We want to be the people who can encourage, lift up, pray for and comfort others when they go through hard times.  So, let’s ask the Lord to bring loving Christians into the Walter family right now:
Pakistani Christian TV & Film

There are amazing things going on in television all over the world.  Please pray for the Christians in the Middle East who have to be very careful as they use television as a means to bring hope to their countries. Many people in that part of our world can only hear about Jesus through films, TV shows, music or radio.  So, we want to have God use the Media for His glory across the globe:

Nailea Devora
Nailea Devora

Pray for the people who are getting “famous” through YouTube, Instagram and other social media platforms. This is a false sense of celebrity, and so we’re praying for God’s wisdom, protection and discernment for these young people and the agents who are exploiting their positions on the internet.  This week we particularly pray for Nailea Devora, who has been picked up by a major talent agency because of the millions of hits she receives on her social media accounts:
Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg is going to produce and star in a faith-based film called “Stu".  We want to pray for God to empower Mark, his faith in Jesus, and for this film to be excellent and far-reaching, and the completion of a long-time goal for Mark.  We’re thankful for his heart and commitment to make films with truth, beauty and goodness.  To learn more: 
Mark Whalberg
We thank you for praying with us this week and we ask that you do something bold and Christ-like this Easter week.  Step out of your comfort zone and think of something radically loving that Jesus would do if He were here, and GO FOR IT. And have a joyous Easter! Remember that we are all here because HE HAS RISEN!
With love,
Karen, Kelry and Danae

Grace is one of the supernatural gifts from God to us. His grace is sufficient, Jesus is defined as grace, and we are to show grace to others. It’s a poetic word with a powerful effect on everyone who practices it and accepts it from God. We’ll spend this week grasping how wide, deep, and high grace can be in life if we embrace it and practice it every day.
