Prayers for the Entertainment Industry
Dear HPN friends,

This month is the most meaningful time of year for Christians! We get to celebrate Jesus rising from the dead for each and every one of us, and we pray that you are full of joy, celebration and a desire to tell others about the incredible love of Jesus during this Easter season. May you show Jesus' love to people this month in a way you’ve never done before, and may you join us again in praying for the people in Hollywood who God also loves more than we can ever imagine!
Zachary Levi

We want to praise God for the Christians in Hollywood who are excellent at what they do and are wonderful people along the way. This month we are grateful for Zachary Levi, the actor who stars in the new hit film Shazam! and who also loves Jesus. Zach has a reputation of being kind, fun, and a person of integrity. Let’s thank the Lord for Zach and the growing number of entertainment professionals who are excellent witnesses, friends, and professionals.
Selena Gomez

Let’s praise God for Selena Gomez’s faith and her openness about her trust in God. She has struggled with mental and physical health issues over the last few years, but continually expresses how her faith helps her through it all. Let’s thank God for Selena and pray for her continued healing as a testament to God’s work in her life.
Conflict between writers and agents

Based on issues of control and pay, the disagreements of the Writers Guild and talent agents have resulted in a split between the two groups. It's a volatile and confusing time as the ramifications could radically change how business is done, so please pray that God would continue to guide the major decision-makers through this conflict. Pray also that wherever possible, God will protect and heal the relationships between writers and agents, both personally and professionally.
Pray for TV pilot production

Pray for all the new TV shows in production during this pilot season, as networks decide which pilots will become new series. Pray over the relationships between the newly-formed casts and crews, and that they will experience God’s presence as they work. Let’s also pray for God to guide the decision-makers as they determine which shows will be chosen to air. (A pilot is a stand-alone episode of a TV series that is used to sell the series to a network, and will usually run as the first episode, if picked up.)
Pray for people and programs at Disney+

Let’s pray for the decision-makers at Disney who are planning their upcoming programs to fill their new Disney+ streaming service. We want families across the world to be able to enjoy the shows without concern of any inappropriate content. Read and pray through this guide to the top decision-makers and all the projects that will be part of their lineup so far.
CBS and Les Moonves lawsuit

Pray for the ongoing #MeToo issue at CBS Television between Les Moonves, the network’s Board of Directors, and the courts. Moonves’ departure due to allegations from several women about his inappropriate behavior has caused a lawsuit that makes a complicated legal debate over moral, ethical and legal behavior by both Moonves and CBS. Let’s pray for the truth to come to the surface and for God’s presence to guide all of the decisions, which will impact many lives and even our country.
Pray for Jimmy Fallon

Pray for Jimmy Fallon, the host of NBC’s The Tonight Show. We sometimes forget that celebrities are real people too, and Jimmy is the proud husband of 11 years and father of two girls. Let’s ask the Lord to bless his marriage, his family, his friendships and his work, and that he will experience the unconditional love of Jesus along the way.
Thank you so much for praying with us for Hollywood, and have a very Happy Easter!

With love,
Karen, Erin, Kim and Virginia
National Day of Prayer in Hollywood
Thursday, May 2nd, 7:00pm - Burbank​​​​​​​
We’ll be celebrating, as a community, our 27th annual gathering for industry professionals on the nation’s official National Day of Prayer.
June 17th & 19th
We want to thank God for every film and TV show that comes out honoring God and encouraging people. More and more often our community of believers are a part of mainstream Hollywood and produce films that glorify God and challenge people to seek Him. Emanuel, which tells the true story of the Charleston church shooting, is in theaters on June 17th & 19th only.

"The two most important days of a person's life are the day you are born and the day you figure out why."
Mark Twain
The 2GTHR prayer app allows you to connect with friends and pray together from anywhere.
Because of Easter, let's live this way:
"With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God's grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need."
— Acts 4:33-35
HPN's newest YouVersion devotional on SIMPLICITY is now available. Oh, how complicated and stressful our lives can be! Yet God tells us He wants us to live simpler, more peaceful lives. He MAKES us lie down in green pastures, which shows we're not very good at it on our own. Let's spend this week seeking simplicity in our lives and be free of the things that are weighing us down. He's offering us a simple life. Let's accept it!
