“War Room” casts and creators host livestream prayer meeting and screening of the No. Box Office 1 hit film on Friday May 8.
The Livestream event is in celebration of the National Day Of Prayer, an annual observance every first Thursday of May in the US. It is known for gathering people of all faiths to pray together.
In addition to the celebration of the annual National Day of Prayer, filmmakers Alex and Stephen Kendrick also aim to encourage people during these trying times.
“Our hope is to greatly encourage people in these challenging times and remind them to go to God in prayer — knowing our world needs it so desperately,” director and actor Alex Kendrick said.
The virtual gathering will be livestreamed on Facebook and YouTube. It includes behind-the-scene commentaries about the movie from the creators and a time of prayer after the screening of the film.
“We love watching films with close friends and sharing insider information and funny, behind-the-scenes stories. Now we get to join the amazing cast from ‘War Room’ and share this experience with families right where they are. It’s also a good time to remind everyone to get on their knees, as Ms. Clara does in ‘War Room,’ and fight this battle together in prayer,” the film’s producer, Stephen Kendrick, said.
It’s time to gather with our families during this quarantine time. Let’s take hold of the power of our prayer through this movie. Prayer is our most powerful weapon against this global pandemic.
The online movie watch party of “War Room” will be on Friday May 8 at 5:00 PM PST. For viewers who do not have a copy of the movie, retailers are offering a limited-time discounted rate. Check their website for more information.
