This weekend Steve and I saw “War Room” movie starring Priscilla Shirer, with our good friends Jonathan & Ariel. People. I have no words. Okay, actually I do. I give “War Room” movie 5 stars. Why? It was EVERYTHING! Here are 3 reasons why I absolutely LOVED “War Room” movie.
- Christian movie, but not corny. Everyone knows I’m a Christian. However, I’m also a movie fanatic. Child, I LIVE for a good movie. Can I be honest? Sometimes Christian movies are corny. That has ALWAYS irritated the heck out of me. However, War Room managed to be biblical, authentic, funny, and (Thank GOD) not corny.
- It stars Priscilla Shirer. I first heard Priscilla Shirer speak at the IMPAACT conference in Atlanta about 4-5 years ago. I’d never heard a woman give the word of God with such confidence, humor, and wit. Shirer immediately became my favorite woman of God, inspiring me to find my own voice. Playing the role of Elizabeth Jordan, Priscilla shows us that not only God bless her with the gift of spreading his word, but Shirer is also a talented actress. Yep, another reason why Miss Priscilla is my fave.
- It reinforces the power of prayer. We know how important & powerful prayer is, but let’s be honest, the prayer meeting is sometimes the least attended church event. My prayer life is far from perfect. Sometimes it’s a straight up war to pray, but once I’m finally there, I wonder what took me so long. The enemy literally fights our prayer life, because he knows it’s POWERFUL. War Room movie reinforces the power of prayer. Man, I wanted to pray in the theater! Ya’ll, I felt chills up my spine. It was THAT good.
Not to sound pushy, but if we can support #StraightOuttaCompton, we can most definitely support “War Room” movie. And here’s my churchy, but true line “It will bless you!” But seriously, it will.
