The brothers Kendrick, both Alex and Stephen have come together to produce a film that America desperately needs right now. War Room is a very open discussion on the power of prayer. This topic is not one that our main stream media would discuss. Their agenda seems to support the notion that being Christian is somehow politically incorrect.
However, the apparent success at the box office of this film would support a different conclusion. It would seem that it is very clear that people are afraid and don’t know where to begin a process to lessen that fear.
War Room offers that guidance. Priscilla Shirer, in the lead role of Elizabeth, is a woman fighting with her husband and for her marriage when she finds an unlikely partner in an older, devout woman longing to share the power of prayer.
Karen Abercrombie is Miss Clara, an elderly, godly woman who begins to mentor Elizabeth. Miss Clara knows about love, loss and fighting the right battles in the right way: by prayer. Give me an hour a week and I will teach you how to fight the right way with the right resources, says Miss Clara. Elizabeth learns how to direct her voice to God.
The timing of this film could not have been better. As Alex said, just look around. There is a fight to win on every corner and this fight is for the very soul of our country.
