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 ...

EXCELLENT FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT

MOVIE REVIEW: "THE PRAYER BOX" (A+) I don't very often review movies that I see either on DVD or on streaming services, but this movie deserves a wide viewership. This movie is available on DVD and Amazon and Netflix. It is touching and just an out and out beautiful family movie. This movie rests completely on the shoulders of young actor GRANT DAVIDSON in his first movie lead role. He does an incredible job in conveying how beautiful life can be, despite setbacks, if you care about other people. The screenplay, direction, and editing are excellent. Even though this movie runs about 105 minutes I wish it lasted twice as long. Watch for Grant since he is a very talented young man and is destined to be a star. Down the line, come back to this review when he is a star and see that I predicted it here. I cannot see any teen do a better job in this part than he did. It was pure perfection. See it if you can and even if you can't. You will thank me for it.
