A new movie is set for release on August 28th entitled, War Room, described as 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.” The story, from the creators of Fireproof and Courageous, focuses on a couple whose strained marriage is failing until the wife is “challenged” to set up a “war room” and create a battle plan of prayer for her family.
The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 to “prayer without ceasing,” but this doesn’t mean we are to establish ritual prayer 24 hours, 7 days a week. It simply means that prayer should be part-and-parcel of our daily lives. Prayer is not only communicating our requests to God, but being fully conscious of Him and His goodness to us. It’s taking the time not only to bring our problems to God, but to praise and worship Him for His daily blessings to us and our family.
