This month we conclude our prayer tour through the nine life spheres, ending it with a focus on the fields of Media, Arts and Entertainment.
God and musicians
“The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang: “He is good; his love endures forever.” Then the temple of the LORD was filled with the cloud,” 2 Chronicles 5:13
Clearly, God wants artists and “entertainers” to not leave their pursuits, but instead to devote their talents to his praise. That such talent is given over to God is one of the evidences of the Kingdom of God breaking in among us. That is our prayer: That the kingdom of God would come to the entire field of Media, Arts, and Entertainment in our region.
There are some obvious ways this might take place, and we should direct our prayers now toward these ends:
 That God’s rule would take over the lives of visible broadcast journalists (news anchor, meteorologists, reporters) bringing them to a transforming faith in Jesus and giving them the boldness to declare their faith openly in the news and entertainment fields, (Consider the names and faces of those you listen to every day and include these in your prayers.)
 That public attention would be drawn to local stories of believers living as salt and light in their RI-area communities – i.e., that the work of God would become the most “famous” thing that people see happening around them,
 That the public around us would begin to hunger for films and stage production that underscore the emptiness of life without God and stories that highlight such Biblical values as truth, redemption, forgiveness, love, and even God Himself.
God’s word “back stage”
Meanwhile, in less visible or “head-line grabbing” ways, there are more human enterprises related to this sphere than we might think. Pray that more and more people who are employed in endeavors like the following would come to faith through the increasingly bold and compassionate ministry of believers. Before you begin, write the names of those you know who work in these or similar endeavors, and include them by name in your prayers.
Advertising Account Management
Creative Services in Advertising
Fashion Design and Sales
Museums and Art Venues
Print Journalism and Copywriting
Social Media Production
As we pray for God’s manifest presence before these people and their spheres of labor, we should also pray that more of those gifted or working in these fields would turn these talents over to God and begin to use them in the cause of the gospel.
