Hallow, the Christian prayer app, has unveiled its collaboration with acclaimed actor Liam Neeson for the fifth annual "Pray25" Advent prayer challenge. The exclusive announcement was made on Monday, Nov. 20, through Fox News Digital. This year's four-week prayer series, "Advent with C.S. Lewis," will showcase the influential works of renowned author C.S. Lewis. Neeson, renowned for lending his voice to the character Aslan in the film adaptations of "The Chronicles of Narnia," will lead reflections during the challenge, scheduled to commence on Monday, Dec. 4.
Contributing to the prayer series alongside Neeson is actor Jonathan Roumie, widely recognized for portraying Jesus Christ in "The Chosen," and Sr. Miriam James Heidland, SOLT, a prominent Catholic speaker and author. Notable musicians Andrea Bocelli and Matt Maher will join the lineup. Alex Jones, CEO and co-founder of Hallow hopes that the Pray25 challenge will provide participants with a transformative and focused prayer experience, especially amid the distractions of the bustling holiday season.
The theme of the challenge revolves around the three comings of Christ: His infant birth in Bethlehem, personal entry into each individual's heart, and the Second Coming. This daily prayer challenge is designed to help participants find quiet moments during Advent, allowing them to recognize how their hearts' desires transcend the world's offerings. According to Church Leaders, Neeson said, “It’ll all be part of a Christmas and Advent challenge to help us to grow deeper in our faith this holiday season,” Neeson added.
In an interview promoting the prayer challenge, Liam Neeson emphasizes the transformative nature of prayer. Having been raised in the Catholic church, Neeson brings a wealth of spiritual insights to the challenge. His career, spanning over four decades with notable roles in films like "Schindler’s List" and "The Chronicles of Narnia" trilogy, reflects a deep connection to cinematic and religious themes. According to Fox News, Neeson said, "I've partnered with Hallow for this project to help guide folks through some beautiful meditations. It was an honor to journey through them with the community on the app."
