Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
This sphere was created by God to build stronger communities and strengthen hope. When truth is presented in this way often makes a great impact, when people feel connected to the story. God wishes to be revealed as Righteousness, Peace, and Joy. Here’s how you can pray for the arts sphere.
- Pray for celebrities, actors, producers, and authors who do not know the Lord to come out of darkness and into the light.
- Pray that arts & entertainment would reflect more godly values.
- Pray that the younger influential generation would reject ungodly values promoted by the arts.
- Pray for believers working in the arts, for boldness and protection.
- Pray for the Bible to become the standard of morality again; let the arts celebrate morality.
- Pray for God to raise up men and women of God in the arts that would write songs, movies, TV shows, releasing a new sound that’s never been heard before.
- Pray that people would lose their taste and interest in arts that celebrate fear, hatred, lust, and immorality.
- Pray for open doors for artists to share Jesus.
- Pray for men and women in this sphere who will celebrate purity, holiness, and modesty, and model godly values.
- Pray for Christian artists to be recognized and given a greater platform.
PrayerLord, thank You for giving us the arts. We thank You for songs that are being written. We thank You for every celebrity who boldly proclaims their faith and sets a godly example. Raise the standard in the arts. Let the standard be purity, morality, and honesty. Holy Spirit, fall on the arts sphere. Bring radical conversions of musicians, athletes, actors, etc, whose lives will promote the gospel of Jesus Christ. Let holiness come to Hollywood, in Jesus’ name.
ActionIf you are in the arts, music, entertainment, acting, or a public platform, this is your sphere. Pick your favorite athlete, musician, actor and take a few minutes to pray for them.
A Final WordAs you end your time of prayer, give thanks to God. He is already at work in several spheres of influence. Thank Him for what He has done and what He is about to do. Lift up a shout and praise. It’s a weapon. As you lift your voice and rise up in your authority, you become a voice for those who haven’t found their own yet. Write decrees for your sphere and speak them. Would you be as bold as Caleb, who in his 80’s told Joshua “Give me my mountain!” Finally declare that Jesus Christ is Lord over all spheres of society! He is Lord over government. He is Lord over family. He is Lord over religion. He is Lord over all media. He is Lord over business, He is Lord over education, and He is Lord over arts! Thank you Jesus!
