Dear HPN prayer team,

We are headed into the busiest time of year – from the new Fall TV season, through Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and then the new year, we start just holding on for the ride right about now. So, would you pray that we ALL find the peace of God during this last quarter of 2017.  And that we will take the time to share our faith in Jesus to others and pray that the Christians in Hollywood will do the same with their co-workers, friends, bosses, neighbors and acquaintances! Let’s pray!

Praises:

Christians Influencing Hollywood
We are seeing more and more Christians working in decision-making positions in Hollywood. Be encouraged that you are making an eternal difference by praying for Hollywood and praise God for His faithfulness in answering your prayers! Check out Mastermedia’s daily list of Media Leaders and Cultural Influencers to pray through. More and more people on this list are people of faith.

George Clooney's Prayer
In response to the football players taking a knee during our National Anthem, George Clooney posted a public prayer, so we want to praise God for that. As a married man and a new dad of twins, let’s pray that George and his wife Amal, both have a hunger for the love of Jesus in their lives and family! As you pray, read George’s prayer for our country.

Spiritually Healthy Creativity Conference
Please keep praying for the Spiritually Healthy Creativity Conference in London on October 21st as Karen and other speakers, share their passion with a gathering of creative artists. The London Diocese of The Church of England, in partnership with The Haven London, are hosting the event on the Creative Arts. Continue to pray for the preparations by Peterson Feital and the spiritual battle he’s experiencing in the process.  We pray that the day will be life-changing for everyone who attends – both Believers and pre-Christians alike!

Political Tensions in Hollywood
In response to last month’s prayer request regarding the political climate, I got a kind response from an HPN member who felt that my approach was not neutrally sensitive enough, so he wrote a suggested alternative. I loved it and decided to print it: “Please pray for the political tensions in Hollywood. People often incorrectly associate Christianity with a certain legislative agenda. We know that God isn't a Republican or a Democrat and as Christians our allegiance is to God first, and when it comes to choices we have to make politically about any earthly entity like a political party or ideology, we pray for each Christian to have the Holy Spirit's guidance to discern which group comes closest to expressing God's heart. The enemy loves it when caricatures of Christians are created which then drive non-Christians away from Him. We are thankful for Christians who have not fled the public square and continue to speak boldly about their beliefs there, with great humility and grace. May we never be afraid to speak truth with great grace and care. We need the Lord to give Christians wisdom here to balance their faith with their politics. Pray that our politics will always be informed by our faith with the guidance and vision of the Holy Spirit.” 
 
 
 

Healing for Our Friends
Please keep praying for complete healing for Brenda, Edie, Marion, Jill, and Jen as they continue their battle with cancer.  We believe the Lord will bring all of them through this and that they will experience victory!
 
 
 

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris
Keep praying for Chris Pratt and Anna Faris during their separation. Chris just gave an interview talking about how tough it is to have any privacy as a celebrity, but that he won’t complain, knowing his career is a gift.  We ask the Lord to protect their hearts and to give them both strength as He is healing their relationship and their struggle with celebrity.

Requests:
 
 
 

Harvey Weinstein
Please pray for Hollywood’s most powerful producer, Harvey Weinstein, who was just removed from his position at The Weinstein Company for sexually molesting and harassing women for the past 30 years. Some women finally spoke out, leading to a scandal that caused Harvey’s Board of Directors to fire him from his own company.  Harvey needs to have a powerful encounter with his Messiah in order to find life-changing healing, hope and a renewed heart. And please pray for the many female victims of his actions.
 
Weinstein, Women, and Hollywood
 
 

Perversion, Privacy, and Prejudice
Hollywood deals with many of the same problems as the rest of humanity, but they often seem bigger and more visible because of the influence that Hollywood has on the rest of the world. Some of the serious issues in our industry are sexual harassment of women, the struggle for personal privacy, and the fight for gender and racial equality. Please pray for the 3 Ps: Perversion, Privacy and Prejudice! Know that as we pray for the people and the issues in Hollywood, our prayers are also impacting others across our nation as well.  As you pray, read George Clooney’s struggles in these areas.

The American Film Market 
Pray for the Lord to be visibly, tangibly, powerfully present at The American Film Market – Nov. 1st-8th in Santa Monica. Pray for all of the 7,000 industry leaders who attend the world’s largest motion picture business event for over eight days of deal-making, screenings, conferences, networking and parties. The participants come from more than 80 countries and include acquisition and development executives, agents, attorneys, directors, distributors, festival directors, financiers, film commissioners, producers, writers, the world’s press and all those who provide services to the motion picture industry.  As you pray for these people, the Lord’s presence here can change the world’s entertainment and the hearts of the people creating and controlling it.

Pray for Lady Gaga's Health
Pray for Lady Gaga after she had to cancel the last leg of her world tour due to her health issues with fibromyalgia. She has been in pain for years and now has to do something about it, if she wants to keep performing in the future.  May the Lord heal both Her body and her heart as He reveals Himself to her.  She has an incredible reputation for being professional, caring and kind toward others, so we ask the Lord to reveal to her His divine care, kindness and transforming power in her life.

Pray for Fergie Duhamel
Pray for singer and songwriter Fergie Duhamel, of The Black Eyed Peas, who has been struggling with dark, demonic visions until the church helped her through it. She still struggles with other personal issues, so we ask that our God will not only give her peace, but that He shows Fergie how much He loves her and will protect her from the flaming darts of the enemy.
