Storyline

The Prayer Box is a beautifully tragic story about what happens when God doesn't intervene the way people want him to. Following the story of a young boy who sets off on a mission to get God's attention in hopes that God will heal his sister from terminal cancer, the young boy begins answering the prayers left by church members in the pastor's prayer box after the pastor throws them away, jaded by his own suffering. It tackles the heavy issues of unanswered prayer and if God even hears/answers prayer with a message that is heartbreaking in its raw portrayal of human pain and suffering in this world. Not a conventional inspirational faith film, this film is undeniably powerful in the fact that it challenges preconceived notions of whitewashed happy-go-lucky faith. This film does not hide the fact that life is full of pain, suffering, loss, and betrayal, yet it somehow manages to take these themes and find God in the midst of it all. There is a childlike innocence and naivety to the ...

A Moving, very well done, wholesome movie!
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!
