Legacy: An Evening of Honor & Prayer

Posted by | Events | 16 Comments

legacy-logoHPN & Mastermedia were honored to have joined together to host an incredible event on the National Day of Prayer this May 4th, 2017. Legacy: An Evening of Honor & Prayer was a coming together of Christian professionals in media & entertainment. We honored the shining lives of faith: Martha Williamson, Jessica and David Oyelowo, Christina Lee and Steve Storm, Merlinda Balmas and Terry Botwick. The night also included prayer for careers, marriages & families, health, and a closing commissioning.

The evening was truly a blessing to so many and God was magnified through these professionals’ testimonies. We continue to pray for all who came, for them to be inspired and empowered to do His work in this city of influencers.

Fast Week

Posted by | Events | No Comments

fasting-photoWe hope to have all of you join us for our WEEK OF FASTING AND PRAYER for Hollywood and the global entertainment industry from APRIL 10th – 16th.  It’s the week before Easter and we will break the FAST on EASTER SUNDAY.  We will be praying for the people, the projects and issues related to the entertainment industry. If we can be praying all over the world, we will truly make an eternal difference, for we believe that if we do it together it can be spiritually powerful and unifying for all of us globally!

We recommend this article to read through in preparation for FASTING that Bill Bright (Founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, now called CRU) wrote years ago.

Act One & Hollywood Prayer Network Had A Great Oscar’s Prayer Walk!

We had a great prayer walk around the Dolby Theater on the Thursday before the Oscars a few weeks ago! Even though the Oscars have come and gone, we encourage you all to continue to praying for the entertainment industry as well as the winners and nominees. Thank you to all who participated in the walk!

 

Prayer Encounter Night Update

Posted by | Events | 5,871 Comments

HPN and our Hollywood Chapter Directors had a “Prayer Encounter Night” on Friday, Nov 11th and it was incredible! It was a night of creative, reflective and contemplative prayer. Each participant interacted with various illustrations focusing on a different aspect of their relationship with God, guided by audio narration set to original contemplative music. It was a blessed night for everyone!

Read this encouraging message from an attendee: “My husband and I wanted to thank the Hollywood Prayer Network for an amazing night last Friday night.  We were so incredibly blessed by the ministry.  We had expected to come and pray for HPN but were blessed by receiving ministry.  The prayer stations were wonderful to go through together as a family and our boys took communion for the first time together.  We were especially blown away by the prayer and prophetic ministry at the end of the evening where we each received precise and encouraging words of prophecy. What was so wonderful was that it was confirmation around what God had already been speaking to us about in the days leading up to the evening, even for Xavier!  We all came away thanking and praising God for His incredible goodness and faithfulness to us as a family.  Thank you so much to you and the ministers for being available for the Holy Spirit to use!”

We started our chapters to mobilize prayer all over the states and the world for the entertainment industry. Our desire is to have our chapter directors spend 3 days with us in Hollywood in order to get to know one another, to get a clearer vision of all that God is doing in Hollywood and to go back more prepared to pray for the world’s most influential mission field!

For all of our HPN Local Chapter Directors, we have put together a schedule for our SUMMIT that any of you can take advantage of at any point during the week-end, depending on your schedule.  We will be flexible so that we can have as many of you as possible joining us for this special event.

We want you to know that though we can’t pay for your airfare to Hollywood, HPN will be covering the cost of everything you need once you get to LA.  We will pay for your food, housing and local transportation.  There is an extra charge for couples sharing rooms. Once you make your flight reservations, we will make sure you get from the airport to your housing and back.  So, PLEASE pray for the Lord to get you here and then we’ll take care of the rest!

10 Days Hollywood 2015

Posted by | Events | No Comments

10 Days of Prayer – Hollywood

Sept. 13th – 23rd

Gatherings of Hope for our City, our Entertainment Industry & our Jewish Community

10 Days is an annual opportunity for the Body of Christ in your area to step away from normal routines of daily life and enter into an extended time of experiencing God together through worship, prayer, fasting, and fellowship.  It’s a way for all the believers in your city to unite with Jesus at the center. It’s rooted in the 10 Days between the biblical Feasts of Trumpets, Rosh Hashanah, and the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, celebrating these Jewish Holidays. For more info on the national 10 Days of Prayer, click here!

The vision of “10 Days of Prayer – Hollywood” is to unite the body of Christ in Hollywood, for 10 days, to lift up the city of Los Angeles, the entertainment industry and the Jewish community in prayer. We want churches to come together and gather as one in the Spirit! If your church or ministry would like to host a night of prayer, please contact Karen at karen@hpnemail.org.

TESTIMONIALS FROM THE GATHERINGS:

"We had an incredible celebration yesterday bringing in Rosh Hashanah with Jonathan, Sharon and our Radiance International family: worshiping, praying, repenting, interceding, speaking and hearing from the Lord. Most of our Hope in the Hills family were in the house from 12 – 4 PM, and a few of us were able to hang with Radiance all the way to midnight for the 12-hour burn/fasting/prayer. The last couple of hours turned into a full-fledged, packed-out praise party as we sang and danced before the Lord. Hallelujah! God met us on the Hill yesterday.

Also, the unity that we experienced coming together was extraordinary. We’re particularly close since our worship leader and a couple of our intercessors have all been launched from Radiance, so we’re beautifully connected. We look forward to future times when we can worship and serve together for the glory and advancement of God’s kingdom and love."

− Naima Lett - Hope In The Hills

"We had a great morning opening the ten days prayer for Hollywood for the media/ entertainment mountain as well as for Los Angeles. We cried out to God for deliverance and saving power for this next 10 days! We continue to hold on with everyone as we join in prayer! I feel the exponential power of "if one can take a thousand to flight two can take ten thousand" that kind of force is released on our prayers as we pray and released as well to the city and people God loves! Happy New year 5776 Shana Tova...the year God will hammer His word on the "vav"(6). Year of Shimetah too. "

− Linda Cruz - Forerunners For Christ Church LA

"I was at Expression 58 and it was a powerful night of prayer, worship, communion and connection. We know God was moving there."

− Karen Covell - Expression 58

"I believe the 10 days were significant in getting God's people to pray & worship. The Holy Spirit increased our desire for Jesus, and to see the ministry of Jesus manifested. Prayer and worship is like the Air Force that always makes it easier for the ground troops. Our troops happen to be actors, directors, writers, producers and other behind the camera crew. We need more times of consecration like this. Being relevant will not be enough. We must go after the depths of Jesus to touch the depths of humanity."

− Ajay Samuel

"I spoke on Rosh Hashana, the Day of Atonement and the importance of keeping our relationships right with each other. Then we prayed for about 45 minutes for LA, the entertainment industry, the peace of Israel, our nation, our leaders and the State of California. It was a great night!"

− Mona Talovic

Testimonies

“I just want to express my deep gratitude for all the time, strength, and love you have invested on us to have our stay in LA so memorable. I am so honored to meet such wonderful people. My heart is so moved and full of compassion for Hollywood. You , your family, and the staff of HPN are  in my prayers. May the Lord our God bless you abundantly. Much love , Maria” – Maria Schwaerzler

“I just want to say a big THANK YOU once again…to all of you. What a great time in the Lord & meeting so many great new people!! Oh wow. One of the best weeks of my life~ so thankful to have gotten to pray, serve and enjoy that time with such Godly, creative people. I will always treasure this experience…may the Lord continue to bless the Hollywood Prayer Network all the more!! – India Cross

“Hello Karen. Thank you for the wonderful HPN Directors Summit. I met a host of super people who I will not soon forget. The hospitality of the HPN team was extremely gracious. The speakers and our prayers were powerful, and I know that Hollywood is forever changed by the gathering.” – LaVonne McIver James

“It was absolutely amazing. I’m still thanking God now, weeks later, that I got to be part of this wonderful event and ministry. I learned a lot about how the industry works and felt very encouraged to hear testimonies and insights from the speakers. Getting to know the other chapter directors was really incredible as well, I learned a lot just hearing their heart for God and the industry. Another highlight of the event were the prayer walks. Especially being at Disney Studios was a huge thing for me, it’s on my heart to pray for his company and that the beautiful legacy he left on this earth won’t become corrupted. Before I came to the summit I wasn’t sure about my heart for Hollywood and if it was really God speaking to me about the industry or if it was just myself. But being there kindled this fire in my heart again for Hollywood, it confirmed everything God has been speaking to me. I felt so encouraged and full of fresh new Hope! And I left LA with so many new friends (not just chapter directors but loooved hanging out with the volunteers too! Big shout out to their incredible work!) and I really hope we can continue next year!” -Raquel Schwaerzler

“Thank you for this lovely event, and I hope there will be more of this. It has opened my eyes in several ways, and it was very encouraging to meet so many lovely brothers and sister! But again, thank you for this lovely event, and I have learned a lot in different levels.” -Ole-Andre Ronneberg

“Today, delivered my testimony at Gateway Church in North Richland Hills, TX on “Looking for love in all the wrong places” (outside of Jesus), and shared the ‘interview story with Hef’ that you delivered on day one at the Summit, Karen – as it so touched me how we can judge someone without understanding the depth of their brokenness.  I tied in that story with my own brokenness of another way ‘looking for love in all the wrong places’. When they did prayer following, they prayed for HPN and for God to touch the actors and for us at Gateway to become aware to pray for them!” – Cinthia Shuster

“One word I would use to describe the Summit is Inspiring.  I appreciated hearing first hand from people who are working in Hollywood. It was good to hear their stories of success in serving God and the areas of struggle so I can be praying more effectively. I thought the panel and speakers brought a good variety of information.  I learned a lot about Hollywood and the people serving there. During the Summit it felt like a lot packed into the three days.  After being home and reflecting on my time with all of you I was glad our time was filled. I was there to learn, server, pray, and follow God’s lead and I felt that happened. Though we were only together for three days it felt like so much more.  God knit us together and community was created.  A part of my heart is even more with Hollywood and all of you than it was before the Summit.” -Peggy Buzzard

“Wow! I’m at a loss for words! (Very rare for me) Bill & I were so incredibly blessed by your gracious, generous, details, complete love for us at the Summit! We’ve been home almost a week & are still so excited about what God did & spoke to us & through us while we were there & it has continued since we’ve been home. We made life-long friendships & are connecting people here with people according to the Lord’s leading. You have no idea how far & wide & high & deep the Lord is using you! All this to say THANK YOU!!! You have made an eternal difference. We’re praying for you! Love – Michelle & Bill Winder

“Thank you so much for the Director’s Summit! I very much enjoyed meeting all the people and praying together. I’m amazed that you covered all our expenses too! You have blessed all of us and encouraged us to pray with knowledge, passion and persistence. May God shower you with His abundant blessing and favor!” -Joe L. Brown

“I was asked to speak about the Summit at my church in Australia this past Sunday! What  an experience, what a blessing to tell so many people about HPN and encourage them to pray and see the entertainment industry as a mission field. Pray for Christians in it, and for people to get saved. I didn’t want to talk about anything, I’m Moses, saying not me, not me, send Aaron but people kept asking, the elders were saying ‘please share your adventure the Lord took you on’ so I did. People were asking me for your website address, mostly older, conservative’s encouraged and now praying. Also, the youth group that I teach drama too, want to hear about HPN” Claire O’Sullivan

“What an experience for me! I have told many that it was the best conference I’ve ever been at, excluding my own, of course. LOL At first I thought the schedule was too full but I honestly changed my mind right away. Everything that you scheduled was perfect. I could hardly wait until the next surprise on our agenda. One of the things that profoundly struck me was the humility of all…even all the speakers exuded a God-glow of honesty and humbleness. This was evident and impressed me in how God is using His Name and character to reach Hollywood and the industry. I was also not expecting all of the giftedness in the media that was present in so many of the HPN directors. I was star struck, to say the least, but what it did was increase my faith in believing the big things I believe God has revealed to me concerning media in my own life. Thank, thank, thank you. You made us feel special and I came away with more understanding and information. I can’t wait to do this again. One more thing, the divine connections were amazing and such an encouragement to me. Everyone wanted to give of themselves. Loved the embracing of all the different faith backgrounds, too, in worship. That’s the way it should be. And trusting us to pray for the speakers was a wonderful treat. I was humbled that God used me and surprised, too, in the ease of it. You created an accepting atmosphere for all of us.” -Forshia Ross

“Please forgive the lateness of this thank you and appreciation for the Summit that changed the world.  I have been marinating each detail  and trying to come up with how deep and wide the impact of this meeting was.  It will make a significant contribution to many lives within the HPN organization and lay a foundation for the organization never known since it’s inception. The chapter directors working together during the year can make a significant difference. I have already developed relationships and friendships with three directors. The love and care of each detail in the planning was obvious.  You are all to be commended for caring so much about us.  Each of us was meant to feel very special.  I truly do not have any negative comments.  Yes, each year new things could be added to the summit.  But, at this point you’ve got the basics down and can continue to add the frosting.  Next year what might be fun is a timeline of how the organization grew. And a map of the vision.  I think I was the first chapter.  National news coverage would be a great goal. I was amazed at the loyalty of the volunteer drivers. All staff acted so unselfishly. I love each of you dearly and know we are a unique family. God Bless You All!” -Barbara Halleen

“We didn’t really get time to share with all of you our testimony – the power of Christ, which saw us attend the Summit. Let’s just say, YOUR PRAYERS (ALL OF YOU) made this trip extremely possible. ALL OF YOU, played a big role in showing us the true love of Christ and furthermore, enabling us to believe in the vision we have to introduce many to the love of God. During our stay and interaction with all of you, we were treated like Kings and Queens – the heart you carry to love others is contagious and we receive it fully. We have carried this love back with us and constantly bring up your names in day to day conversations.You have all become family with a huge South African community. To say Thank You to all of you would not be able to cover the broader gratitude we have. All we can say is that know that when you are in South Africa, you have a brother and a sister here awaiting to look after you and show you the same love showed to us. We request that this Summit be the first of many…even if we are required to start a monthly fund raiser, then so be it. Whatever we can do to ensure that this becomes an annual meeting, kindly let us know. KAREN – I have never met an individual as honest, transparent and loving as yourself. There is a reason why God entrusted you with this initiative. One day we will show you exactly how much we appreciate you in our lives. KIM – your jolly-ness, love and constant smile are all a blessing to us. You showed us unconditional love. MEGAN – there is a reason why good people have this name (like our 11 year old daughter). You are a shining star. VERONICA – meek, humble and quiet, yet a work horse of note. NAOMI…..where do I start? Every time i mention this name in our household, both Mq and I smile and share lovely memories. We do miss you guys and do not believe in co-incidences. There is something that God expects from us and you guys have activated this. Thank you thank you thank you…WE LOVE ALL OF YOU DEARLY. This SUMMIT will be remembered 100 years from now as being the global entertainment game changer.” -Marilyn Ngubane
