    Christians Called to Pray for Hollywood

    On Project Inspired, we often ask you to pray for people in Hollywood. Whether it’s for married celebrities struggling in an environment that lacks Christian family values or individual stars challenged with the pressure to be perfect, we have asked for prayer.

    TheCRY Hollywood, a cumulative prayer movement, takes this request much further. This March, TheCRY Hollywood will gather together with thousands of people, including artists and worship leaders, to pray and fast at the Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, California. Their goal is to bless Hollywood so that it produces more positive media.

    There is power in our prayers. There is power in our praise. There is power in our blessing (Faytene Grasseschi, Director, Thecryhollywood.com).

    The group feels that the media and Hollywood play such a huge role in peoples’ lives and that people are influenced and impacted by what they watch on a daily basis. However, because it’s mostly negative media, people are constantly exposed to a high volume of violence, sex, and other explicit material.

    But that can be turned around if we pray for the opposite. If we pray for movies and television shows that reflect Christian values and positive messages, such as the movie Courageous, people will be impacted in a positive way.

    Following is a clip featuring Ted Baehr from movieguide.com. In it he explains why TheCRY Hollywood movement is so important and how we can all make a difference, even as individuals.

    In North America today the average person spends less than 28 hours a year in church but 6 hours a day saturated in media. That is 2190 hours. That is 28 to 2190 (Thecryhollywood.com).

    TheCRY Hollywood will be followed by a two-day special revival conference at which Patricia King, senior pastor Shawn Bolz, and other Christian leaders will speak.

    We believe God’s eye is on entertainment media and He desires to move through it powerfully to speak of His love, power and redemption to a generation” (Faytene Grasseschi, Director, Thecryhollywood.com).

    What do you think about TheCRY Hollywood? Do you agree that if Hollywood focuses more on media with Christian values, people as a whole will be impacted positively?
