Christian Media Critic Ted Baehr Encourages Prayer for Hollywood
Movieguide® Publisher Dr. Ted Baehr spoke Monday night, Sept. 29, at the National Day of Prayer Task Force strategic prayer meeting in Rolling Hills, Calif. to discuss and pray over the seven pillars of influence in society, including the mass media.
Dr. Baehr gave three prayer points that people can lift up in prayer.
- Pray for the most powerful voice in Hollywood, the 12-24 year olds that go to the movies. Pray that they might have biblical discernment in the media they choose to consume.
- Pray for those in Hollywood who need the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray that Christians can be a testimony to those that need His saving grace and love.
- Pray for Christian filmmakers, that they may produce movies and programs with excellence and skill. Pray also that they may be the leaders of their craft, reflecting the beauty and magnificence of Jesus Christ in their work and all that they do.
“Please pray for Movieguide® as we work to make Hollywood the epicenter for moral entertainment that God calls it to be,” Dr. Baehr said.
The event was hosted by Mrs. Roberta Hromas, Founder/President of American Christian Trust and featured Christian leaders, such as: Rosalinda Baron, National Day of Prayer Task Force, Director of Development, Lisa Crump, Director of Prayer Mobilization, National Day of Prayer Task Force, Mr. Fred Barth, CEO, Prime Equity Management, Dr. Leo Lawson, Campus Pastor, University of Southern California, Mr. John Robb, Chairman, International Prayer Council, Mr. Gordon Walker, CEO, EZ Stairs, Inc.
