Writers Strike Prompts Prayer in Hollywood

Last Friday 700 people gathered for the National Media Prayer Breakfast at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif., to pray for the end of the two-week writers’ strike that has halted production on many Hollywood studios, reported the Associated Press (AP).

“We pray that both groups would feel your supernatural guidance to stop blaming and posturing and start peacefully listening and negotiating,” prayed Geriann McIntosh, senior vice president of administration for Warner Bros. Television. “We pray that you keep everyone that is affected by the strike in your loving care.”

Many attendees at the breakfast, which was co-sponsored by the Hollywood Prayer Network and Mastermedia International Inc., focused prayers on quickly ending the strike to avoid massive job loss.

Prayer network founder Karen Covell, whose husband lost his job as a result of the strike, believes this is a critical time for Americans to pray for Hollywood, the AP reported.

“If it goes on for months it will shut down the income for families, and people need to start making tough decisions,” she said. “There is a lot of fear. There is a very current need for prayer.”

Covell added: “We are praying for it to be fast and fair and dealt with quickly.”
