Prayer ministries from across the globe will gather in the media epicenter of Hollywood, CA, October 1–5, 2014, for The Summons—a solemn assembly of corporate and strategic intercession. The National Day of Prayer (NDP) Task Force is partnering with the Hollywood Prayer Network to call intercessors to pray at studios and with media executives, producers, and the creative community.
Participants will hear speakers that include prayer leaders and industry professionals. They will also spend time in corporate prayer sessions, then be commissioned to venture out on “prayer mission trips” to studio lots, Hollywood Boulevard, TV tapings, and walking tours.
Christians in the Hollywood film and TV industry are eager for the prayer support. “I just feel like that for too long Christians have stood in judgment over Hollywood, instead of really having God’s heart for it and seeing it more like Nineveh than Sodom and Gomorrah,” says actress Kirsten Roquemore.
Producer Karen Covell, founding director of the Hollywood Prayer network, adds that through prayer “God is invited in to change hearts, to change content, to change lives—and lives changed in Hollywood will change the world.”
The Summons in Hollywood is an extension of the vision of the executive committee of the NDP Task Force and the National Prayer Committee. They met for several days in August 2011 at the Jericho Center in Colorado Springs, CO. After many days of fasting and prayer, the Lord revealed to the leadership the following Scripture passage: “The Mighty One, God, the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to where it sets” (Ps. 50:1).
As a result, they hosted The Summons in Washington, D.C., in October 2012, with 300 intercessors praying at key sites throughout the nation’s capital, as well as with the staff of every Congressional member.
Now The Summons moves to the West Coast (where the sun sets in the nation), with the call to intercede for this key sphere of cultural influence. Registration is limited to 300 people. For more information go to hollywoodprayer.org.
