We saw War Room last night and it was one of the Kendrick Brothers’ best films yet.  The movie stars Priscilla Shirer, T.C. Stallings, and Karen Abercrombie with appearances from Beth Moore, Michael Jr., Alena Pitts, Jadin Alexis Harris, Alex Kendrick, Stephen Kendrick, and Gary Wheeler.

War Room Movie Review: Prayer is Powerful

War Room is a powerful movie with a powerful message.  Tony and Elizabeth Jordan have great jobs, a nice home, and a lovely young daughter.  They seem to be living a dream life, but their marriage is failing.  Then, Elizabeth meets Miss Clara.  Elizabeth is a real estate agent and Clara is one of her clients.  Elizabeth visits Miss Clara to settle the details about selling Miss Clara’s home.  While there, Miss Clara shows Elizabeth her favorite rooms.  She reveals to Elizabeth her most favorite room, her War Room.  Miss Clara had turned a closet in to a War Room.  Her War Room is where Miss Clara fights spiritual battles for her family in prayer.  In her War Room is a chair, her Bible, and notes taped to her closet War Room wall.
But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you. ~ Matthew 6:6
Elizabeth occasionally attends church but she admits to Miss Clara that her prayer life is neither hot nor cold, but rather luke-warm.
So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. ~ Revelation 3:16
Miss Clara shows Elizabeth in a clever demonstration that luke-warm isn’t good enough.  She helps Elizabeth improve here prayer life and Elizabeth resolves to go into her own War Room and fight a raging battle to save her marriage.

War Room is not only a movie about saving a marriage and strengthening the home but also a movie about the power of prayer.  The movie demonstrates the value of an intentional prayer life which is just as powerful in any area of battle.

I was so inspired by the message of War Room that I got up this morning and immediately began working on my own War Room.  I have a few more things to add, but my War Room is ready, my prayer strategy is in place, and this warrior woman is ready for battle. 

I highly recommend War Room and I hope that if you are reading this post, you will make plans to see this movie as soon as you can.  Get your tickets early.  Our theater was sold out and I’m receiving reports that theaters are sold our all over our area.  If War Room is not playing in your area, call your theaters and tell them you want War Room to come to your area.

Watch the Trailer here.


In the meantime, perhaps you will enjoy all the Kendrick Brothers’ previous films.  I’m an avid movie-goer.  I love all kinds of movies and I have to tell you that these movies are by far my all-time favorites.
