War Room

Film Description:

War Room – Prayer Is A Powerful Weapon!

From the award-winning creators of Fireproof and Courageous comes WAR ROOM, a compelling drama with humor and heart that explores the power that prayer can have on marriages, parenting, careers, friendships, and every other area of our lives.

Tony and Elizabeth Jordan have it all—great jobs, a beautiful daughter, and their dream house. But appearances can be deceiving. Tony and Elizabeth Jordan’s world is actually crumbling under the strain of a failing marriage. While Tony basks in his professional success and flirts with temptation, Elizabeth resigns herself to increasing bitterness. But their lives take an unexpected turn when Elizabeth meets her newest client, Miss Clara, and is challenged to establish a “war room” and a battle plan of prayer for her family. As Elizabeth tries to fight for her family, Tony’s hidden struggles come to light. Tony must decide if he will make amends to his family and prove Miss Clara’s wisdom that victories don’t come by accident.

Opening nationwide in theaters August 28 and filled with more of the authentic characters loved by millions in previous Kendrick Brothers’ films, WAR ROOM is a vivid reminder that prayer is a powerful weapon.

    […] The storyline follows Tony and Elizabeth Jordon who are traveling through everyday middle class life. Their marriage is struggling and their hearts for one another are beginning to callous. Tony, a hard working reputable salesman, defines success through his sales and abilities to provide for his family all the while shifting his wife and daughter to the back burner in pursuit of his career.  Elizabeth, recognizing the downward spiral of her marriage, knows that something must be done to change her husband but feels there is nothing she can do until she befriends an elderly widow; a “prayer warrior. The woman begins to teach Elizabeth that some battles can only be fought and won with prayer.   (Christianfilmdatabase.com) […]

    My family and I just left from watching War Room. It was the best movie we’ve ever seen! All of us were so blessed by this remarkable movie. The actors were wonderful and the message was absolutely AWESOME! We are so ecstatic about War Room. We want to tell everyone about it. I am 15 years old, but the reality of God’s awesome love and grace is powerful enough to touch anyone, regardless of age. God bless Alex Kendrick and the other producers and actors involved. We hope they make many more movies!!

    Hello, I just want to give a shout out to the War Room movie. I just watched it with my family in our local theater. This movie isn’t just another re-falling in love/ dysfunctional family movie. This movie is a movie about making powerful contact with God through prayer. I believe this War Room style is effective in many situations. Kendrick brothers, God bless you both for taking your gifts and making treasure, not trash. Keep standing out for Jesus. ‘The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His Face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His Face toward you and give you peace’. This movie is a must see for the whole family. What a blessing!

    My husband and I just saw the movie and it was great! What an awesome message and testimony of the power of prayer! This film is a wonderful reminder that God longs to give His people abundant and supernatural blessing, but we must ask. People without Christ will not understand this movie unless the Spirit moves them. We loved it… The acting was great.

    August 29, 2015
    About 40 of us from Journey Church Columbus went to the premier of Alex Kendrick’s movie the War Room. I was touched profoundly by its messge and wanted to share it’s positive message with you.
    I decided to check the reviews before writing this one and and I’m very glad I did. I could see that the nay sayers and the non believers were at work. They don’t ‘get’ God’s message to us. God wants us to pray for each other. To know that He will take care of us. And most importantly, to give God the glory…always.
    It’s not about the worldly riches, it’s about the heavenly riches and living in community with one another as part of God’s army here on earth.
    I strongly approve this movie and hope that many of you will be able to see it for yourselves.
    Blessings and peace.

    We give this movie 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
    Are you kidding me with all the negative movie out there, that leave you wondering why would you spend $10 to see this, and waste all you time seeing nothing that would encourage and or motive you. This movie was incredible. It was touching, heart felt, and all through out the movie I found myself not only bowing to pray, but begin to ask God to forgive me for things I needed to correct in my life. The people around me were bowing their heads in prayer as well. We celebrated as we watched God at work in their lives, and felt the deep pain, of being alive and not living. Knowing that God will help you, when you cry out, is certain. It says in His word “Cast your cares on him for He cares for you.” Why not show Christian as winners! We know the battle has already been fought, and won! We hold our heads high, because God has done this for us! We win, we don’t paint a tragic picture because with God on our side, there isn’t one. He didn’t say our lives wouldn’t have trials, but he did say he wouldn’t give us more than we can handle. This Movie “War Room” blew us away. I work in a children’s home and my 10 boys are the toughest critics, I know. Yet they clapped, they cheered, they cried because God is real, and He answers our prayers! 20 years ago if a movie touched your heart people raved over it, even clapped at the end. They were clapping all the way through this one, bowing their heads, and gave a standing ovation when it was over. Sorry you didn’t see the same movie we did. My boys loved it, and said I give it “100” please do yourself a favor, go to this movie, and bring someone along that will need to see what a prayer life can do. How about we give some props to industry’s that are impacting our world in a good way, and leaving you to think about what it is you need to change about your life. I don’t know about you, but I’m still being touched by what I just watched 6 hours ago! Brenda Garner ( It’s Time 4 God ) a class act all the way, get ready for a new movie experience!

    I am so happy I don’t listen or care what The reviews say
    About War Room.
    I think they gave it bad reviews because it’s Christian based.
    Not Hollywood made.
    Didn’t have Sex or bad language.
    Well if that’s their taste in movies, I will never go
    to another Hollywood movie again!
    Keep up the great work!
    Please don’t stop making great films/ movies!

    I went to see the movie with a few friends and family members. We enjoyed the movie and were encouraged to see that the movie theatre was packed. To me, the movie was more reality based with real life options on how to deal with real life issues.

  32. Patsy says

    Either you will connect with the movie and see the truth of God’s Word exposed or you will have no clue what this movie was about. Truly, our world, country, communities, families, and believers, have lost their understanding of what it means to experience the salvation of Jesus Christ. Jesus died that we might live the abundant life.

    This movie illustrated what goes on in the majority of “Christian” homes. Millions of couples attend church on Sunday but return home to argue, fight, and live separate lives. Then they wonder why their children turn away from the faith.

    War Room recaptures what it means to be a Christian – bringing oneself and all that belongs to them, under the authority and leadership of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and renouncing Satan and his power over their life.

    1.Salvation is a personal experience. Elizabeth did not bash her husband but she did submit her husband to God, praying that God would work in his life. She did come under God’s authority and allowed Him to work in her life to resolve her anger and unforgiveness. If we want God to change our marriages he will begin in “us” first.
    2.Going to Church does not equate living the Christian life: Millions sit on pews each Sunday to go home to live as they want on Monday – Saturday. Our belief and faith in Jesus will affect all area of our lives. True worship is a life lived in holy sacrifice to God.
    3.“Victories do not come by accident.“ So often we want God to zap us with his all powerful wand. Not only are we to submit to God but we must resist Satan. We must be intentional about winning our battles, whether in the mind or in reality. Understanding the real enemy is key to winning the battle. Satan is the enemy.
    4.“There’s no room for you and God on the throne of your heart.” Either we are on the throne or allow Jesus as Lord of our lives, but not both. We have a choice to allow God to fight our battle or we can take control, thus facing the consequences of our own actions.
    5.Prayer is powerful to solve a mountain of problems. A prayer life will change you, your marriage and your ministry, and your outlook on life. When is the last time you got on your knees in the closet and wept over a loved one? (I am working on my own War Room)
    5.We have a responsibility to mentor others in their journey. Love is tough. Even if you are seen as a “busy body” it is worth the risk to save someone’s life, their marriage, or better yet, their soul. We take risk to speak about other topics and issues. If we have experienced the grace of Jesus we are responsible to share it with others. “Lord bring me one that I can mentor along the way.“
    I could go on and on with my opinion of the movie and the lessons I learned but, God will speak to you in a different way.

    I just saw this movie this past week and it was one of the best movies that I’ve ever seen. I thought I was praying before I saw this movie but now I am trying to become a “pray warrior” the right way. I praised God, cried, sat on the edge of my seat, and had such uplifting feelings as I left this movie……MORE MOVIES SHOULD BE MADE LIKE THIS ONE!!!! We all need to be moved by the SPIRIT!!!!!

    I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I’ve seen it four times & brought a different person each time.
    I loved that it is so real. So much life, hope & promise.
    I’m not a memorizing scripture kinda person but years ago I ran across 2 Cor 10:3-4 and have it in my heart I couldn’t even really explain what it meant yet I knew it was important. I know now I can relate it to this movie and it’s message.
    ” tho we walk in the flesh, we don’t war according to the flesh. For our weapons of warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds”.
    I am so grateful to all the Kendricks for this movie. Also for acknowledging every single person it seems that had anything to do with bringing this dream to fruition. From children in child care to praying churches to floor sweepers. Just as God doesn’t overlook anyone neither have the producers. Everyone’s service has been acknowledged. That warms my heart as much as Clara and Elizabeth and Tony and Danielle.
    Thank you for another great job. I know it’s made God smile!
