Up Coming Prayer Event in Hollywood -- TheCRY Hollywood
January 23, 2012
LOS ANGELES, (christiansunite.com) -- On March 15th, 2012, thousands of Christians from California and beyond are expected to gather in the heart of Universal City (Universal Studios) for a powerful day of prayer, fasting and worship through an event called TheCRY Hollywood.
"This is not a concert or a conference," says Director Faytene Grasseschi (formerly Faytene Kryskow), "this is a CRY for God to move with His love and power in entertainment media in a way that will impact the masses."
Grasseschi and her team believe in the power of prayer to change things and have conducted 8 similar mass prayer gatherings in the nation of Canada. Through these gatherings they saw remarkable answers to prayer including significant shifts in national political polls on the very days of the gatherings, the advancement of morally based legislation in the Parliament of Canada, a drop in youth stats on issues like drug abuse, a fresh outpouring of the spirit of God in many churches involved and many more tangible, marked, shifts.
More than simply prayer, however, one thing that really marks TheCRY is the spirit of blessing that the gatherings operate in. "Early on the Lord impressed on our hearts the power of loosing life, love and God's glory t hrough our prayers," explains Grasseschi. "We are not coming to point fingers or accuse anyone. We believe God has a dream in His heart for everyone and we are here to pray that His dream for a generation breaks out. When it breaks out everything else has to leave. Like Ezekiel did, we want to speak life to dry bones."
In the past, movements like TheCRY or TheCall, led by Lou Engle, have focused on prayer for a nation or a city. TheCRY Hollywood, however, seeks to pray for a sphere which impacts many nations. That sphere is entertainment media. Attendees and supporters are believing God to touch this sphere that touches the world and is influencing the mind of a generation.
TheCRY will be held at Gibson Amphitheatre on March 15th and many well-known international and national leaders are planning to participate. For more information visit www.thecryhollywood.com.
