She reaches out on Facebook the week before the prayer time, and asks people to submit their prayer request for Hollywood.  She says, “It is amazing how so many people are starting to ‘get it’ when it comes to prayer for Hollywood.  I have received MANY responses, from people I really didn’t think would respond.  The prayer seems to close the gap between each of us.” Her Facebook pages are Hearts for Hollywood and Hollywood Prayer Network, Salem, Oregon, and you can visit her website at HeartsForHollywood.com

South Carolina, Aiken – Carol Bond

By Global Local Chapter Directors, USA Chapter Directors

Carol is a homeschool mother,  so much of her time is spent with her youngest daughter. She also has three adult daughters. Carol and her husband are very active in their church, and they volunteer in a variety of ways. The first time Carol felt led to pray for someone in the entertainment industry was many years ago when God placed Brad Pitt and Jennifer Anniston on her heart. Prior to that, Carol had unknowingly begun getting a bad attitude about Hollywood. When she found HPN, God began to convict her of that bad attitude, she says. Since then she has felt led to commit to praying for the entertainment industry and becoming a Chapter Director.
