Prayers for the Entertainment Industry
It’s already DECEMBER and we’re all either celebrating Hanukkah or preparing for Christmas! This is a great season for us to be mindful of offering prayers and love up to our Jewish friends and coworkers as they celebrate Hanukkah, and to offer everyone around us the gift of hope, joy, peace and salvation through Jesus - because it’s His BIRTHDAY!!!!! Don’t be shy about His birthday celebration, and know that people who don’t yet know Him are more open than you think to learn about their Messiah - because we are all made in God’s image. Let’s celebrate and pray...
God's work through HPN

Praise God for what He has done through HPN in the past 17 years in the hearts and lives of both Hollywood industry professionals and prayer warriors who have been praying together to invite God into Hollywood. Also praise Him for our HPN giving team, who has allowed us to reach faithful intercessors around the world and Hollywood industry insiders, to receive prayer, fellowship, encouragement and hope as they live and work in the world’s most influential mission field. We’d love for you to consider joining our HPN giving team for an end-of-year donation.
If it’s not the right time for you, then please pray that the Lord continues to faithfully fund our growing ministry with both pray-ers and donors. Thank you for walking this exciting journey with us!
Anthony Hopkins' spiritual journey

Praise God for Anthony Hopkins’ spiritual journey toward God. This is a reminder that the Lord can do anything in anyone’s heart at any time! We’re all on a spiritual journey and when we see others embrace our God, it’s something to celebrate. While you’re thanking God for Anthony Hopkins’ continued search for Jesus, pray that he embraces Him and His truths to the very end!

Pray for Oprah and her family

Please pray for the Lord to put His loving arms around Oprah Winfrey to comfort her and give her strength as she mourns the passing of her mother, who died on Thanksgiving. When it comes to losing a loved one, we’re all equal at the foot of the cross and our prayers can allow Oprah and her family to feel the Lord’s presence in their sorrow.
Pray for editors of film and TV

Pray for editors who have a vital role in the creation of films and TV shows. Editors are storytellers for they are responsible for incorporating all of the filmed or digital elements - sound effects, visual footage, and music - into an effective story. Let’s pray for God to use editors to tell honest, impactful stories, and for Christian editors to use their skills and opportunities to highlight elements of God’s truths in their films and TV shows. This interview with the editor of First Man shows the powerful effect an editor can have on the final product, from emotional impact to the clear telling of the project’s message.
Pray for the global entertainment industry

As film and TV industries are expanding globally, let’s pray for Christians who are filmmakers to have an eternal impact as they shoot and edit their projects all across the world. Now TV and film producers can touch the world, not only through the distribution of their projects, but also in the filming of them as well. Let’s pray for the international industry as you read here about Finland’s government offering cash rebates for film and TV shoots, helping them attract more and more projects.
Pray for new leadership in entertainment

Let’s pray for a few more new entertainment leaders coming into Hollywood. Each person has tremendous influence on what entertainment the rest of the world is watching. Our prayers for them can make an eternal difference, both in their lives and in the content of our entertainment.

"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace."
Ephesians 4:2-3
HPN's new 7-day devotional is available on the YouVersion app. This week our upcoming topic is CHILDREN. There is something divinely miraculous about children. And as adults, we have a responsibility to love them, protect them, and train them in the ways they should go – whether they are physically ours or not.
