Pray for the Media

by | May 5, 2011 | Prayer & Devotion

The media is unquestionably one
of the most powerful and influential voices in our culture. Journalism
used to be a simple matter of reporting the facts and, where there was
controversy, presenting both sides of the story. Unfortunately, that is
no longer the case. From the top national networks to local
newspapers, we are faced with the challenge of sorting through
commentary and conjecture in order to get to the truth.

Meanwhile, throughout the
entertainment industry, the heroes of pop culture model vices such as
materialism, promiscuity, substance abuse and violence. Professional
athletes, once some of our nation’s most revered and reliable role
models, now watch many of their fellow players regularly fall into
public disgrace.

Those of us determined to be
discerning are constantly faced with the task of wading through the
media’s often biased and immoral offerings to find wholesome and
acceptable alternatives for ourselves and our families. Specifically,
we need to recognize and reject the errant messages of popular culture
that run counter to the Judeo-Christian system of values.

We encourage you to make our
nation’s journalists a subject of prayer. Ask the Lord to provide the
television, radio and print mediums with staff members and executives
who are committed to accuracy and integrity.

We must also remember to
intercede on behalf of the actors, musicians and athletes our young
people seek to emulate. Pray that more of Hollywood’s celebrities will
be worthy of our respect and admiration. And as you watch your favorite
sport, ask the Lord to strengthen and embolden any Christians on the
team or coaching staff. Nothing is too difficult for God ­ and though
the industry often seems unprincipled, we know the Lord is able to use
the media to accomplish His purposes.
