Alex and Stephen Kendrick’s latest movie on faith, War Room, is now showing at Cinemas in Nigeria. From the makers of the successful movies Facing the Giants (2006) Fireproof (2008) and Courageous (2011), this 2-hour classic is tailored to reach out to Christian couples in troubled marriages and to show them how to save and restore their relationships.
War Room is a story about a couple who have been married for 16 years, with an 8 year old daughter but are experiencing serious communication and relationship issues. Tony Jordan, the husband, played by T.C. Stallings, has been distant and impassive to his wife and daughter and quite uninvolved at home with basic responsibilities. His wife Elizabeth, played by Priscilla C. Shirer, is a successful and beautiful woman into real estate who is quite affected by the deteriorating relationship with her husband. She soon meets Miss Clara (Karen Abercrombie), an elderly intrusive woman who introduces her to the effectual power of prayer and the Lord, and urges her to shift her focus away from her husband’s failings. Instead, Elizabeth is encouraged to spend time in a War Room where she can sit, meditate on God’s word and inspirational messages and pray. She later takes the advice, which soon results in a positive change in her marriage, emotionally, spiritually, in their conversations and relationship.
