LOS ANGELES, Sept. 24, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Christians everywhere are being called to pray for Hollywood more than ever, but up until recently only a few had committed to use prayer as a strategic, game-changing means to turn the entertainment capital of the world back to the living God, biblical values and decency. However, prayer for arts and entertainment is expected to increase exponentially with a historic gathering of laser-focused, high-powered prayer teams in October in Los Angeles called "The Summons: Hollywood."
The Hollywood Prayer Network has joined with the National Day of Prayer Task Force to bring together and mobilize hundreds of Christian prayer missionaries, intercessors and ministry leaders from across the United States. They are dedicating themselves to shift the spiritual atmosphere of Hollywood through intensive, persistent prayer.
Attendees will pray at studios in Hollywood, with media executives, actors and producers. Among the featured speakers will be Shirley Dobson, Chair of the National Day of Prayer Task Force; Dave Butts, Chairman of the National Prayer Committee; John Bornschein, Vice Chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force; and DeVon Franklin, a high-level studio executive and author of the book "Produced by Faith." The event will also include practical teaching to equip the prayer leaders to go back to their states to spark a new passion among Christians nationwide to pray for Hollywood.
The Summons: Hollywood is a solemn assembly to set the stage for a new move of God in Hollywood that hasn't been seen for more than 75 years in the world's most influential mission field.
"The Summons is intended to bridge the gap between the church and the entertainment industry," said Karen Covell, founding director of the Hollywood Prayer Network. "Where spiritual darkness resides, there also will the light of Jesus Christ shine ever so brighter. Christians should not write off Hollywood or cut themselves off from this highly influential mission field, but rather they should dedicate themselves to pray for the people in Hollywood, including movie stars, directors, producers, screenwriters, among others, Christians and non-Christians alike."
This 5-day event (Oct. 1-5) aims to experience what Jesus Christ is already doing in Hollywood and show the body of Christ nationally that the time for Christians to pray for Hollywood is now. A new breed of praying individuals is needed to sow God's Word into the fabric of Hollywood.
To join the prayer movement that is focused on Hollywood, Christians can go to www.hollywoodprayernetwork.org and sign up to become a prayer partner who commits to pray for a specific individual who is serving the Lord on the mission field of Hollywood. Each prayer partner is directly connected with a Christian who is working in the film and television industry.
