Elizabeth Jordan, a busy mom and real estate agent, has grown frustrated with the troubles of her failing marriage between her husband Tony, a pharmaceutical sales rep, who’s flirting with temptation. Before deciding to divorce or separate from her husband, Elizabeth crosses paths with Miss Clara, a humorous, yet Bible-bound old lady who senses something is askew in Elizabeth’s life. Miss Clara insists that Elizabeth must pray every chance she gets, preferably in a closet called a “war room,” where she can adorn the walls with prayers and Bible verses. Miss Clara convinces Elizabeth that she must not dwell on the negative aspects of her husband and their failing marriage; instead, she must fight alongside her husband, and conquer Satan, who is the one responsible for their unhappiness.

The budding friendship between Miss Clara and Elizabeth soon grows into an experience of a lifetime. Elizabeth devotes an hour of her time everyday to pray for her husband in her “war room” and soon discovers the miracles that prayer can bring. Her broken marriage becomes whole again and her relationship with her daughter grows better each day, all thanks to Miss Clara’s advice to pursue prayer.

In conclusion, “War Room”, emphasizes the importance of creating time for prayer in people’s lives amidst the daily obstacles that get in the way of their time with God. Every religious family in America should watch this movie and consider this movie as an inspiration to pray more often. I wholeheartedly give this movie a 5 out of 5 stars!
