Hollywood’s Big Night

Hollywood’s Big Night . . . the Red Carpet . . . and Prayer?


A culture-changing movement of prayer is building within the body of Christ . . . and you and your church are invited to take the lead in your community!

On Sunday, March 4, when the Academy Awards® are presented and the world turns their eyes on Hollywood, churches nationwide will be focusing their prayers on the world of entertainment .

Hollywood’s Big Night is an opportunity for the Body of Christ to come together and touch the lives of media’s most influential . . . through prayers that uplift, inspire, and express God’s love and grace.

And your church family can be part of this dynamic movement of prayer for the entertainment industry! Tens of thousands of prayers will be offered during Sunday morning and evening services and Sunday school classes on that day. Imagine what God might do when the Church passionately prays for media!

March 4, 2018, could be your church’s biggest day of prayer ever for media, Hollywood, all the awards nominees, and the arts and media professionals in your congregation.

As Mastermedia’s Media Leader Prayer Calendar states, “Our responsibility is to pray for these leaders. Theirs is to decide whether or not to allow Him to work in and through them for great, pure, and noble purposes.”

Hollywood’s Big Night is coming—and the Body of Christ will be mobilized to pray. Be a catalyst for passionate prayer in your community!

Watch the video below to see how Pastor Dudley Rutherford led Shepherd Church in Porter Ranch, California, to pray for Hollywood during a previous Academy Awards® Sunday.
