Hollywood fills movie theaters and DVD kiosks with trash. They often mock Christians and our faith. Yet every-once-in-a-while, an independent filmmaker comes along and puts together a real gem with no-name actors, and it fills theaters. Such is the case with “War Room,” which my wife and I watched this evening. “War Room” is one of the best Christian films I have ever seen, made poignant by its very real portrayal of imperfect people with imperfect faith who turn to a perfect God in genuine, fervent prayer for transformation and reconciliation. Indeed, we are not called upon to change people’s hearts. That’s God’s job. Our job is to humble ourselves and offer up prayers for others, while also recognizing that overcoming sin begins with ourselves.
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
