"The War Room" ~ Because Prayer is a Powerful Weapon

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

           Welcome friends!
           Can I tell you how happy I am to share with you details of a  <truly> life changing, soon-to-be-released movie?   Provident Films and Affirm Films  of Moms' Night Out, When the Game Stands Tall,   Courageous, Facing the Giants and Fireproof have done it again. 
        In fact, I frankly think, impossible though it seems, that  this  time, they outdid the impact, the message, the power, of their previous projects. Really.

                Before I start discussing The War Room, this latest production,  I must offer to you this clip, which is part interview,  part trailer, part inspiration, which includes several 
of The War Room actors,  as well as the Kendrick brothers, themselves, providing a bit of background on the project and how it came to be.:

         One of the many wonderful opportunities that comes with the blogging life is the chance to preview brand new media in the way of book titles, educational resources and even major motion pictures.
          Just last week, I was privileged, along with one of my kids, who was happily untethered to a sports schedule that evening, to see a preview  of "The War Room" at a somewhat - local multiplex.   If the Kendricks' name is attached, you know you're in for more than just 
 90 minutes of entertainment in the form of  likable characters, a few  laughs and a mild sprinkling of depth. .......
             You just know you're leaving that theater after spending time with The Wow Factor.  You know you'll be challenged.   You know you'll ask yourself on the drive home how a movie could compel you to be better, to be more. change your way of looking at a certain life situation.
           And that night, walking out of The War Room's preview theater, all of our expectations were met...and exceeded.  My son and I were speechless, processing the characters we got to know and like, their struggles, their pain, their triumphs and their roads remaining to be trodden once the credits rolled.
         We cheered them as they turned to the Lord to beg forgiveness, patience, mercy. We identified when the Lord provided, but  in ways unasked for. 
        We wished we were real-life friends with Tony and Elizabeth Jordan, whose marriage is crumbling before our eyes and who eventually turn to God for strength and for the ability to regain their love for one another. 
        We were awed by the motivational, clever qualities  of Miss Clara, who , throughout the movie, expresses the need for prayer "strategy," as one would plan for finances, for education.

Let me show you exactly what I mean~~
 enjoy this trailer~~


It was a true pleasure and honor to preview The War Room
