“To win any battle you’ve got to have the right strategies and resources. Because victories don’t come by accident.”
Synopsis: A seemingly perfect couple dealing with a failing marriage seeks advice from an elderly woman who encourages them to find fulfillment through prayer.
Real Estate Broker Elizabeth Jordan (Priscilla C. Shirer) meets Ms. Clara Williams (Karen Abercrombie) who is selling her home. As they do a walkthrough of the home Ms. Clara shows Elizabeth the different rooms…Some are her favorites and the one Elizabeth found beautiful was the wall of memories. Which helped remind Ms. Clara of the many things God had brought her through. To which Ms. Jordan replies, “I could use some of that.”
Elizabeth promised to drop off some neighborhood comparables and Ms. Clara promised to show her more of her favorite rooms. When Elizabeth returned with an offer Ms. Clara gave her the okay and also showed Elizabeth her most favorite room in the house—and that room was her War Room. A place where she told Elizabeth she did all of her fighting in prayer.
She gave Elizabeth the “okay” on the offer for the house and then gave her an offer. If Elizabeth would give Ms. Clara an hour a week she would help get her prayer life back on track.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth’s home life seems to be crashing all around her…She and her husband Tony (T.C. Stallings) are having marital problems that are now affecting their daughter, Danielle’s (Alena Pitts) outlook on what a real family should be like. And because of some dishonest activities, Tony is fired from his lucrative paying job with the prospect of going to prison. Pride always comes before a fall. He finds himself in a pit of self-pity and shame.
As the movie progresses and the frequent visits to Ms. Clara’s house continue Elizabeth makes a few changes to her closet and one day her husband finds the prayers she has taped to the wall in that closet. This is where the family begins to realize they need a much Higher Power than they can find in themselves to stay together.
Will Ms. Clara sell her house? Will Elizabeth and Tony reconcile? Will they build a better relationship with their daughter? Will Tony go to prison? Most notably will the Jordan family find a relationship with God in the midst of all this? You will just have to watch the movie to find out.

We give War Room
I’ve seen War Room more than once and never understood why it received such low ratings. What I enjoyed most about this film is how it brings to life the very real power of prayer. This movie is very well scripted. The production, storyline, and actors’ performances were spot on. If you have seen this before — revisit and if you haven’t seen it—it’s a must-see. This is a very good movie for the believer and also for those who are searching for God through some hard situations. If this movie inspires you there is also a War Room Bible Study Book which includes 5 scriptural lessons and inspiring movie clips found in the movie War Room. This short series provides a variety of heart-felt and/or humorous movie scenes and Bible study sessions that can be used in a corporate church message series or a small group Bible study setting.
