If you'd like some encouragement in your prayer life, I'd recommend going to see the movie War Room. In case you have not seen the trailer, it is not a military movie; the "war" part refers to doing battle in prayer. The movie centers around a troubled family and a much-needed mentor who appears at just the right time. Within a serious story line that includes a great deal of humor and warmth, this is a clarion call to believers that prayer should not be seen as an afterthought, but as the first and most powerful action we can possibly take.
