War Room: Lessons in Prayer

I first heard of the film "War Room" a few weeks ago on Facebook. I saw the trailer and knew I had to see it. High quality Christian films are few and far between when it comes to theatrical release.

I was shocked when it became the number two film in its first weekend and then number one the second weekend. Who would have thought that a Christian film would make such an impact?

This movie dealt with real issues that families face ... and how they overcame through prayer. The War Room is a metaphor for prayer. Interceding to God in prayer is like going into battle. The War Room is where we learn how to strategically fight the Enemy of our souls.

This is what the Bible says about spiritual warfare:

 "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand." - Ephesians 6:10-13

This movie inpsired me to make some important changes in my prayer life. Especially using Scripture to give my prayers more power by proclaiming God's Word over the people and situations I pray for.

I am ready for War! I am ready to Fight!

MISS CLARA: It's time for you to take the gloves off and fight for your family!


  1. When I went to check out A Walk in the Woods, almost everyone in line at the theater came for War Room and I kept wondering "what is this movie they're all so eager to see????" and now I'm starting to notice more buzz about it. Although I doubt I'll watch it anytime soon, it's always nice to have quality movies that have a positive impact on viewers once they leave the theater. That's a good thing :)

    1. Nicole, yes, it's a life changing film. It certainly opened my eyes to the power of prayer.

  2. I haven't heard of War Room! Now I want to see it, too, so I'll keep a watch for it. Thanks for the recommendation.

    1. Trudy, so great to hear from you. Yes, watch the film. It's great.
