Day 5 – Media

Today we are praying together for Media. This includes things such as TV and Social Media and everything in between. In 2021, you could argue that one of the biggest influences on our world is the impact of Media. Depending on what study you look at, the average time people spend on their phone is between 3-5 hours a day. No matter which way you look at it, Media impacts us. Let’s pray today that The Kingdom of God would transform both Media & ourselves – that heaven would take reign of Media’s impact as well as our relationship with it.

1 John 2:15-17 “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.”

Every good and perfect thing flows from the heart of God. Imagine what could happen if Media was used for the good and Glory of God. Our world has never been more connected because of social media, how could the Kingdom impact that connection? If connection & relationship are the very heart of the Trinity, imagine what would happen if that sense of connection and relationship invaded Media? If we are spending hours scrolling, what if the things we scrolled over were filled with life and light? Jesus says that our eyes are the lamp of the body, and if our eyes are healthy our whole body will be full of light! So we pray for the light of the world to invade one of the greatest influences on our world, Media.

Pray that the connection of Media would be used to bring an end to loneliness and isolation.

Pray for future generations’ influence over Media – that they would learn to let it be used for light & good.

Pray for the influencers of Media, that they would come to know and follow Jesus and impact millions because of it.

Be still and ask The Father to give you His heart and vision for media and pray into what you’re sensing.
