Prayer For Those In Media

When it comes to media, it can be easy to fall into a woe-is-us mentality, complaining about those in the business far more often than praying for them.

It can get very discouraging, and we can feel like the odds are stacked against us. Sure, we might see a conversion here or there, but it seems like the converted are in the minority. But remember that each soul is a soul for the Lord. And each soul will influence others.

We can only do our part and let God touch hearts in His good time. Let us pray together now for those in media:

Father, in a world deafened by a cacophony of sounds, may all be able to hear Your whispering voice. We ask this for all who work in media, the press, radio, television, the Internet and film. May they cherish truth more strongly than their own prejudices and personal agendas. May they present truth in a way that will enlighten hearts rather than inflame passions and conflicts.

We pray for the artists and musicians of the world. May they utilize their talents to give You glory and in the process receive the recognition that they deserve. May they expose the horror and error of sin and the beauty and truth of virtue. We ask this, Father, in the name of Your Son, our Divine Master, the Way, the Truth and the Life, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

One thought on “Prayer For Those In Media

  1. There is a deep pun in the word “broadcaster.” Originally, it was an agricultural term which meant “scattering seed widely.” Then it came to mean sending out a signal across a wide area. Christian and Catholic media allow the seed of the gospel to be sown widely by using the technologies that transmit the message around the world.

    Broadcasters don’t have to know how it all works nor predict the size of the harvest in advance. The seed has a life of its own. Jesus said, “This is how it is with the kingdom of God; it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land and would sleep and rise night and day and the seed would sprout and grow, he knows not how. Of its own accord the land yields fruit, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once, for the harvest has come” (Mk 4:26-29).
