If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. — 2 Chronicles 7:14
In 1994, I learned from a writer, producer, director, animator, from Hollywood, how distorted the Christian point of view, of our time, was regarding Hollywood. We were being taught, and participating, in conversation that was stone-throwing criticism, stronger than Siskel and Ebert.
He planted a seed in my heart to pray for the people of Hollywood. A seed that not only changed my point of view, but grew exponentially, like a mustard seed. It is my hearts desire to continue planting that seed, not only in the state of Missouri and in heart of all Christians, but also in generations yet to be born.
We want the Branson International Film Festival (April 4-7, 2019) to be covered in prayer as all the speakers and performers and participants prepare for it!
Pray for leadership to stay focused on Christ and lead with integrity, strength and conviction
Pray for cast and crew to work together with grace and mercy, not like the workers of the vineyards from Matt. 20
Pray for everyone to place God first in their lives, then their families and then their careers
Pray for the independent film-makers to learn the business side to walk along their creative side and that it’s okay to staff their weaknesses so everyone’s strengths can shine.
Pray for unity, clarity and integrity for everyone
Take the scripture of 2 Chronicles 7:14 to heart. Let it start with ourselves, our homes, our families, our neighborhoods, our circle of influence and community as we join hands with one another around the world.
