Prayers for the Entertainment Industry
Dear HPN members,

I hope you had a loving Valentine's Day. Today is Ash Wednesday and the first day of Lent, which goes through Saturday, April 3. Let’s take these 40 days to fall more in love with Jesus, serve others, memorize scripture, spend contemplative time with the Lord and ask Him to use us to make an eternal difference in our world! HPN Board member Dr. Naima Lett has written 40 Day Journey for Joy, a fabulous devotional for Lent. Click on the info at the bottom of today’s Call Sheet and join us in seeking JOY this Lenten season! And let’s keep praying for people in the global entertainment industry as they create our culture!
 In Memoriam: Dustin Diamond and Carman

After our prayer requests in previous Call Sheets, we want to update you that actor Dustin Diamond passed away on Feb. 1st, at age 44, from cancer, and singer Carman passed away yesterday, at age 65. Please continue to pray for the families, friends and fans as they grieve these losses.

The Super Bowl

Thank you for praying against sex trafficking during the Super Bowl. We believe our prayers made a difference in breaking through this horrible issue. Know that the Lord hears every word, for 75 people were arrested in Tampa last weekend for sex trafficking. It’s a real problem in our world, our country, and often at entertainment events. So, we want to intercede and ask the Lord for protection and healing for everyone involved.
Black History Month

February is Black History Month. Let’s praise God for how far our industry has come in bringing excellent programming, in films and TV shows, that authentically represents Black Americans. Let's pray that our nation continues to embrace everyone, with the love of Jesus, EVERY month!
Minari Poster
Our Friend and Minari

We want to praise God for the films and TV shows that are commercial successes and also lift up God’s values and His message of love and hope. Two films are Our Friend (currently streaming) and Minari (streaming Feb. 26), which show the heart of God in their stories. Minari is written and directed by HPN friend, Lee Isaac Chung, and tells the story of a Korean family that starts a farm in 1980s Arkansas. Our Friend is about a family and their close friend walking together through cancer. We want to keep celebrating God’s goodness, love and truths in our industry.
Marilyn Manson

Pray for rock musician and actor Marilyn Manson, who has been accused multiple times of sexual harassment and abuse. May the Lord use this dark time to transform his heart, mind, spirit and soul. We know that with God nothing is impossible. We also pray for healing for all the victims of his actions. He is only one of many cases of sexual abuse in Hollywood and we want the Lord to come in and squash the actions of the Enemy!

Pray for the new CEO of Hallmark, Wonya Luca, the niece of the late and great Hall of Famer Hank Aaron, as she takes over the helm. Please pray that she would have wisdom and that she would guide the network into making content that is true, meaningful, and full of God’s heart for all people!
"Cancel Culture"

Please join us in praying for the growing divide due to “cancel culture” and the anger triggered by social media posts. We need to invite God into this divide and ask for His wisdom and direction for our personal use of social media. And let’s ask the Lord to bring peace, justice and unity on the internet.  
Thank you for praying with us this week. We anticipate spiritual breakthrough, transformed lives and miraculous answers to our prayers.
With love,
Karen, Kaelyn, Kim and Danae

“Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault.  All glory to him who alone is God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time! Amen.” 
Jude 1:24-25
“Every single day, if I wake up and I have a pulse, I have a purpose. Life does beat you down, loss beats you down, hardship takes its toll, illness destroys your body. But Jesus said it’s not gonna be easy. He said, in this world, you will have trouble. But rejoice. Take heart. I have overcome the world. And because I have, I will empower you to overcome your world. My joy is non-negotiable.”
Kathy Lee Gifford

We think of God as a loving God, a good God, and a powerful God, but we don’t often think of God as compassionate. We are going to spend the week seeing how amazingly compassionate God is to ALL of us, all the time. By the end of the week we should all be shouting for joy, rejoicing, and proclaiming thanks to our God of Compassion!
