Prayers for the Entertainment Industry
Dear HPN members,

Happy March! We’re back with more praises, updates, requests and ways to get involved in HPN, so join us in inviting God into our industry and community to do His miraculous works. We are delighted to have so many praises this week, so let’s dive in!

We want to thank God for Kaelyn Timmins and the year she has served HPN through her leadership, vision and hard work. Her last day is this Friday, so please pray for her transition and for her future. She has been so grateful for the chance to do ministry with all of you! We are also welcoming in Kelry Kirschenmann, who will be replacing Kaelyn, and working alongside Karen and Danae, to further grow HPN and our amazing community. Kelry is already a gift to us and we look forward to working with her. To say “Goodbye” to Kaelyn and/or say “Hello” to Kelry, just hit REPLY to this Call Sheet.
Chet Hanks

We praise God for His unconditional love for all of us and His grace that is abundant. Here is a reminder of God’s love for each of us. Actor/musician Chet Hanks, Tom Hanks’ son, tells about his conversion from atheism in his teens. We can never give up on anyone!

Kelly Marie Tran

We are thankful for Christians who are such great examples of God’s love and grace, and for films that lead the way in diversity and inclusion. We’re celebrating Kelly Marie Tran and her shining light in all she does, and congratulate her on her newest role in Raya and the Last Dragon. We praise God for placing Kelly in this role and for her faith!
Lee Isaac Chung

Praise God for writer/director Lee Isaac Chung, a Christian member of our community, whose film just got nominated for six Oscars. We always want to celebrate the lives and work of committed believers, so we ask the Lord to guide Lee, encourage him, give him favor and keep his eyes on Him all through this rigorous process of getting to the Academy Awards!  The Brehm Center hosted an excellent interview with Lee after they screened Minari last month:

Prayers for Marion

Let’s keep praying for our dear friend, HPN member, and writer, Marion who has been struggling with cancer since last year. She is back for a second round of chemo, so please pray for complete healing for this amazing woman of God, while she continues to make an eternal difference in our industry and in our world!

Grammy Awards

This past Sunday was the 62nd annual Grammys, honoring the best musicians in the world through presenting 83 different awards. Join us in reading through this list of Grammy winners and pray for the winner’s hearts, talent, influence, personal lives and their openness to our God who unconditionally loves them, and who gave them their incredible talent.
The Academy Awards

This past Monday the nominations for the 93rd annual ACADEMY AWARDS were announced. We ask you to pray for this unprecedented year of nominations, and a remote ceremony on the latest date ever:  Sunday, April 25th. These awards completely change a person’s career and life, so we want God’s grace, love, peace and wisdom to supersede the thrill of winning, for everyone involved.

Eric Yuan, Founder of ZOOM

Let’s pray for Eric Yuan, the CEO of Zoom. The world is using Zoom now, due to COVID, and his company is continuing to grow. Let’s pray for the Lord to bless Mr. Yuan, guide him, empower him and give him wisdom to make the world a better place through the decisions he makes for Zoom. 
We are so grateful to have all of you praying with us for these precious lives. Your prayers are making an eternal difference in the entertainment and media worlds! Having all of you join us in prayer makes what we do that much sweeter and more rewarding. Thank you for your partnership and perseverance in prayer!


With love,
Karen, Kaelyn, Danae and Kelry

It's not too late to check out Karen's new devotional book, Hollywood, Jesus and You. And if you already have the book and like it, take a moment to write a review on Amazon.
 “Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.  Be very sure now, you who have been trained to a self-sufficient maturity, that you enter into a generous common life with those who have trained you, sharing all the good things that you have and experience.” 
Galatians 6:4-6 MSG

“Jimmy never once gave me cause for anxiety or jealousy. The more beautiful and glamorous his leading lady was, the more attention he paid to me. I asked him once why he did that and he said, ‘Because I want you to never feel anything less than the most special thing in my life”.
Gloria Stewart and her Husband of 45 years, actor James (Jimmy) Stewart
“Pride cometh before the fall.” What a well-known quote that we have all used at one time or another to judge prideful people. We’re going to spend this week looking into pride and how we can be proud of our choices, proud of God, and proud of others, yet not prideful about our accomplishments, traits, etc. Let’s celebrate God being proud of us while changing any prideful thoughts…
