I was livid. Livid enough that I literally, almost walked out of the movie theater, popcorn and drink in hand. The fact that it was a mother-daughter date didn’t change a thing. Infidelity is not something I enjoy witnessing. It hits too close to home for too many people close to me. So even though it was just a movie, I was ready to jet out of that place. Had that scene lasted 10 more seconds, I would have made it to the door too. But I’m glad I didn’t. Because as frustrating as that first scene was, I can’t deny that the movie as a whole was Powerful. I would only be kidding myself if I tried to say that War Room didn’t spark something beautiful in me. Before I go too far into things, let me tell you a bit about the movie.
Who is this Movie for:
War Room is for anyone needing encouragement in their faith, relationships, or just life in general. It is for anyone who wants/needs to gain a fuller understanding of the power of prayer. Really it’s for anybody. But it’s especially great for wives looking for encouragement and someone to speak positively into their marriage.
War Room is a movie based on the concept of powerful and transformative (if that’s even a word..) prayer. It is the story of a wife who uses prayer to fight for her family and ultimately her broken marriage.
War Room teaches women how to pull the power of God’s Word into their prayer life. And because we know God’s Word is the truth, when we speak in agreement with it, what we speak MUST come to pass. This is the boldness the audience learns to pursue.
BUT once I stopped focusing on my frustration (ya know, for the sake of our mother/daughter date) God used that movie to do a pretty awesome thing in my heart. Had I not been able to just let it go, I would have missed all of the wisdom, counsel, and the incredible testimony that made this movie worthwhile. Turns out I needed a Ms. Clara to speak into my life just like Mrs. Elizabeth did.
War Room is powerful in that it introduces women (and men too) to the power of prayer. It inspires and encourages people to hold onto the promises of God. It teaches us to stand in agreement with God as we pray. And most importantly, it is a movie that demonstrates God’s power and faithfulness when we pray.
War Room is a movie that belongs in every home.
