13 December 2018 | by mraymond-91023See all my reviews

The Prayer Box is an excellent movie, that the whole family can watch. It is a film, that tugs at your heart, because it is a realistic Christian movie, that shows how love and faith in God can get you through the toughest times. The directing, acting and background settings are very nice. You might cry, while watching parts of this, but there are moments that are inspiring and very joyful, too! I highly recommend this movie!
