A couple of weeks ago I spoke with Karen Covell, founding director of Hollywood Prayer Network. She is a Hollywood producer, a lover of Jesus, and an intercessor for her industry. Karen shared with me that even in Hollywood “it’s a battle to do films; there is so much resistance, and society is telling artists to ‘get a real job!’”
Filmmaking is hard work. It’s a very long process and there are millions of details.
If it’s challenging to create films that entertain, imagine the additional obstacles that arise when working to provide film tools to help build the kingdom of God.
While The JESUS Film Project® will not be responsible for the actual film production, there are still lots of details for us to work through—stewarding the biblical and theological accuracy of our scripts; developing ministry strategies for using these films; overseeing the development of the additional resources that will be part of telling Paul’s story; and much more …
Daily we make progress with The Paul Project details. It means a lot to us that you are engaged as faithful, persevering prayer partners throughout this process. Won’t it be wonderful to look back someday soon and see all that God has done!
- Continue to pray for God’s wisdom to guide the leaders of The Paul Project and the production company.
- Ask God to break down any barriers that stand in the way of moving The Paul Project forward.
- Continue to ask God for 500 – 1,000 responses to the millennial survey we sent out two weeks ago.
“… for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure” (Philippians 2:13, English Standard Version).
PS: Recently one of our Paul Project prayer partners told me about the smartphone app “Echo Prayer.” You might want to check it out as you pray for this project and other prayer concerns you have.
