Maybe you have seen The Truman Show. In this movie the main character is the star of a reality TV show but doesn't know it. Truman lives in a fictional world surrounded by actors and hidden cameras. Truman is deceived by manufactured events and relationships.
Christof, the producer of The Truman Show, is interviewed and responds to a question, "We accept the reality of the world with which we are presented."
The media plays a powerful role in shaping public opinion and sometimes the "facts" presented are misleading and people are deceived.
Please join me today in praying for producers, TV talk show hosts, news reporters and editors. Pray for them to accurately report the truth, to see beyond the agendas of politicians and special interest groups, and most importantly to encounter Jesus Christ and become his followers.
Today five well known people from the world of television news have birthdays: Larry King, Ted Turner, Ann Curry, Garrick Utley and Dick Cavett.
The Orange County Register has a list of musicians, actors, and public figures with birthdays today that can be used as a prayer list.
