Prayers for the Entertainment Industry
Greetings, HPN!

This is an active month – both in Hollywood, with the new network TV shows airing; and for HPN, because Karen is going to be traveling to both Jerusalem and Oklahoma to speak on and pray for the Hollywood entertainment industry! So, please be praying with us this October...
Hope4Hollywood Retreat

Another ministry in Hollywood, Hope4Hollywood, held their Fall Retreat this weekend. Both Karen and Erin attended, along with other HPN members. Erin was on the leadership team that encouraged a group of women on our identity in Christ. It's another example of the many ways that God is moving in our city!
Praying for Hollywood in Jerusalem

For the first time in its 27-year history, the annual All Nations Convocation in Jerusalem is including Entertainment & Media in its prayer gathering. Karen is honored to be attending this year and praying for the people, the projects and the issues impacting global media. HPN is seeing more of the world recognizing the need to lovingly pray for the people in arts, media & entertainment. Join us in praising God for this revelation, and please pray for Karen's time in Jerusalem this week!
Acting studios run by Christians 

We are praising God for at least four solid acting studios in our city that are run by believers and who teach acting from a loving, biblical perspective. Would you join us in praying for our HPN friends who are impacting L.A.’s acting community through their committed work and faith, and for the impact that these four acting studios are having on our industry, and thus the world.
The AFA Studio (Abbie Cobb & Chelsea Ricketts)
Baron Brown Studio (Joanne Brown)

Bus accident on musician Josh Turner's tour

Please pray for singer Josh Turner's sound engineer, David, who was just killed and other crew injured in a bus accident while on tour. We ask that the Lord is present in the hearts and lives of everyone mourning the loss of David and that God can turn this tragedy into good for his friends, family and fans. 
TV shows with Christian characters

Let's pray for the new TV shows that are portraying characters of faith, either in a positive or negative light, in their storylines. We want stories and characters that make the audience think, and along with quite a few series already on the air, we ask that you pray for the writers and the messages in these new series: Unbelievable on Netflix, Bless the Harts on Fox, Perfect Harmony on NBC, Evil on CBS, Filthy Rich on Fox, and The Righteous Gemstones on HBO (just renewed for season 2). Let's ask the Lord to open the eyes of the viewers to see God in their TV shows and to follow characters that make them ask eternal questions about their own life and meaning! (HPN does not endorse these shows. We just want you to be aware of how God is showing up in real ways on TV!)
Pastors of celebrities

Please pray for the pastors who are ministering to and serving the Hollywood Christian community. These pastors to celebrities are put under as much scrutiny and fame as their celebrity attendees. Let's ask the Lord to protect them, give them wisdom, discernment, and a humble heart as they preach and minister under the spotlight of Hollywood. These pastors have been having an impact on the lives of creative professionals for years, and their influence only continues to grow.
Stranger Things 4

Pray for the cast, crew, and impact of Netflix's Stranger Things, which was just renewed for season 4. This is a huge show with a loyal audience and we want God to touch the hearts of each viewer with truth, love, joy, peace, and salvation through the characters and stories as they watch their favorite TV series! As you pray, read more about the influential show.
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

"Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless."
— James 1:26
"I've seen people's art change as a result of coming to the church, understanding the gifts that God has given to them. I think the most rewarding thing is to see someone in their artistic expression change because God has changed their life."

HPN's newest YouVersion devotional on YOUR MISSION FIELD is now available. Have you ever thought of yourself as a missionary? Have you ever defined the place where you live or work as your mission field? This week we're going to focus on God's plan for all of us to be missionaries in our own mission field. We don't have to go overseas. We can spread the gospel to the people around us, just by loving them!
