I love my job. I get to do what I love (publicity) with some incredibly talented women who I respect a great deal (Icon Media Group) and promote books and films that are making this world a better place. Our company has had the honor to work with the talented and just plain nice Kendrick Brothers (Fireproof, Courageous, Facing the Giants) to promote their latest film, War Room that opened on Friday.
I got the chance to see it for the first time a couple months ago at a screening in Orlando and from the first scene I was hooked. I laughed, I cried (of course) and there were about 27 times where I wanted to jump up and say “YES.” It’s just one of those films that leaves you full of hope and reminds you there is good in this world. I won’t ruin the movie by telling you much about the plot but the film shows the power that prayer can have on marriages, families, careers, friendships and every other area of life – if we only use it.
Make no mistake, it’s a straight up prayer rally from beginning to end and will leave you with plenty to think about. Given the broken state this world is in, from politics to the evening news to the MTV VMA’s, we could all use a couple hours devoted to something good and positive and so much bigger than us. Prayer is powerful, and you’ll feel ready to tell the whole world all about it after you’ve seen this movie. So grab a friend, plenty of popcorn and go see what all the fuss is about. xo
