The Story of War Room
In War Room, realtor Elizabeth Jordan is broken inside. Although she has a great job and a wonderful daughter and a successful husband, her life at home is in shambles. Unable to get along with her husband Tony, sensing a distancing relationship with her daughter and from God, Elizabeth doesn't know what to do. Likewise, Tony is also struggling, having grown distant from his wife in order to pursue a better career. Unfortunately, Tony starts to get too caught up in his business, working longer hours just so he can make more money. Not spending any time with his family, Tony becomes consumes with his job, and even begins to take on some dishonest business practices, stealing from his company.
Tony also continues to struggle when he meets an attractive young woman at his work. Interested with her, and feeling distant from his wife Elizabeth, he has to make the choice of whether or not to pursue an ungodly relationship with this other woman. Elizabeth begins to sense something wrong with Tony and begins to wonder if he's not being faithful to her.
Things begin to get better when Elizabeth meets her new client, Miss Clara. Miss Clara is a fiery older woman looking to sell her home and downsize to a smaller place. When she meets Elizabeth, her new realtor, her keen intuition immediately tells her that there is something wrong deep down with Elizabeth. And so, after a brief realty meeting, Miss Clara gets down to the heart of the matter, interrogating Elizabeth about her life and family. When she begins to discover that Elizabeth is having problems with her marriage at home, Miss Clara introduces her to her favorite room in the house, her War Room.
Miss Clara's War Room is her private place, just an empty room in a corner of her home with a chair. This is the spot where she can be close to God and pray to Him. This is what helps keep Miss Clara going, her private time with God makes all the difference in her life. After being inspired by this, Elizabeth is encouraged by Miss Clara to go home and start her own war room. Initially reluctant, Elizabeth eventually decides to give it a try. Soon after, she empties out her entire closet and prepares to start this new journey.
While initially distracted, and unable to focus on God, Elizabeth eventually finds a quiet place where she can focus entirely on God and pray to Him. After this, she begins to find her whole world changing. She begins to re-establish her relationship with her husband, her home life and relationship with her daughter improve, and she begins to see a way out of her struggling. But all that begins to change when something terrible happens at Tony's work, and his commitment to his newfound faith is tested to the breaking point.
