So I got a chance to see the movie War Room with my church this past Sunday! Besides the acting skills, I would have to say overall it was a really great movie! The movie was about surrendering to God through prayer and letting God fight your battles. I don’t want to tell too much of the movie, but my favorite part was when the older lady asked the younger lady how her prayer life was. She was shocked anyone would ask her such a bold question when first meeting her. She said “it’s ok, I pray here and there.” The older lady said “would you say it’s hot or cold?” And the younger lady said “I wouldn’t say it’s hot or cold, somewhere in the middle.” Then the older lady went up to get them some coffee. After the older lady returns with the coffee, she hands the younger lady the coffee, and she immediately spits it out. The younger lady said “you like your coffee room temperature?” The older lady says “no baby mine is hot!” She continued “no one likes lukewarm coffee, not even God!”
It was a question that woke me up! How is your prayer life? Is it hot or cold? How do you pray when no one is looking? Do you go to God first before going to people? Do you look at your prayer life as your personal weapon? I think the biggest key to this movie is knowing that some battles are meant to be fought with prayer. Often times we fight to change the situation, when the only thing we can change is ourselves. Even though at times it may be hard, our prayer to God is that we remain in Him, even when the situation doesn’t seem of Him.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Prayer bring peace, go to war in your prayers believing and trusting God will fix it.
