A Movement of Prayer for the Entertainment Industry
Welcome HPN members,
We are excited to have you join us in praying again this week for the people, the projects, and the issues in Hollywood - the world’s most influential marketplace and mission field! This is Valentine's month, the month of LOVE, so we pray that the entertainment professionals who are searching for meaning will discover God’s unconditional AGAPE love this February! Let’s pray…
GRAMMY'S WATCH PARTY 2024!
Thank you for praying for the people involved in The Grammy Awards, which aired last Sunday. Our HPN Musicians Fellowships, Measure For Measure and One Song, hosted a Grammys Viewing Party at Radiance International and it was a joyous time.
This year the viewership of the televised show was UP 34% over last year’s Grammys Awards show. We are encouraged that maybe viewers are coming back to their pre-covid lifestyle!
American actor and singer Tahj Mowry, (brother of Tia and Tamera) started a bible study series on Instagram! Tahj and Tia both recently updated their instagram bios to say that they love Jesus, and both have spoken in recent years about returning to the faith they were raised in. Let's praise God for Tahj's boldness regarding his faith, and let's be praying that this series touches people and encourages them to come to Jesus! As you praise God for Tahj, watch one of his videos here.
Please pray for the marriages in Hollywood. National Marriage Week is every February 7-14 and HPN is having a PRAY FOR MARRIAGESgatheringon Feb. 12th! We want to see the wonderful community of single Christians in the entertainment industry who want to be married, find their spouse! We know it’s a spiritual battle and so we are praying for them and asking the Lord to give them the desires of their hearts. Pray with us that we can see more godly marriages in our industry and in our city.
ALAN RITCHSON DEFENDS HIS FAITH
Alan Ritchson, star of Netflix's Reacher, talks on TikTok about how Christians judge him for playing Reacher on TV. He gives a wonderful explanation of the power of stories and how, like the Bible, he is telling the story of an imperfect person. Let’s pray for Alan and support his choice to be salt and light in Hollywood and on television!
The 2024 Global Fashion Weeks are in full swing, and we want to be praying for the fashion designers, the attendees, the garment workers, the hair and beauty workers, and the models. The fashion and beauty world is growing every day, and we want to believe for more Christians to influence this massive mission field. Please also be praying for the mental health and physical well-being of those models who feel incredible pressure to be almost unnaturally thin and beautiful.
SPIRITUALITY AND FAITH BREAKFAST
Variety is hosting its first-ever Spirituality and Faith in Entertainment Breakfast presented by the Faith and Media Initiative (FAMI) on February 13th. Let's pray for the leaders, the initiators and our friends who are speaking, DeVon Franklin and Roma Downey. Other speakers include Hilary Swank and Rainn Wilson. May the Lord reveal Himself to everyone who attends and that Variety will want to keep hosting these special events for all industry pros: Christians and pre-Christians alike! We are seeing more believers lifted up in our industry and we are so thankful!
We thank you so much for praying with us this week. Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and please tell an entertainment professional that you love them this month!
With love to all of you,
Karen, Kelry & Myesha

“An 'impersonal God' - well and good. A subjective God of beauty, truth and goodness, inside our own heads - better still. A formless life-force surging through us, a vast power which we can tap - best of all. But God himself, alive, pulling at the other end of the cord, perhaps approaching at an infinite speed, the hunter, King, husband - that is quite another matter.”
-- C.S. Lewis
" form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the Lord, do all these things."
-- Isaiah 45:7
Weekly Devotional: Our Moral Compass
God wants us to place great value on our character. He wants us to be people of integrity, to be Christ-like, so that we can be good examples, strong Ambassadors of His, and people that others can trust. What is your moral compass? Let’s look into what it takes to be a person of strong integrity and good character. INCORRUPTIBILITY
