#055 – A Chat with Priscilla Shirer

Join me for a little chat with Priscilla Shirer as we talk about making movies, prayer, and pushing past your fears. After talking with her, I’m over the top about how this film will impact God’s people to accept the challenge for strategic prayer.

    Hi Chrystal! Let me first start by saying God bless you for allowing the Lord to use you through this podcast. You have been a tremendous source of encouragement for me. I look forward to hearing your messages every Monday! It would be a great honor to have you speak to our women here in Chattanooga one day.

    Moving on, I am so excited about War Room! I have suggested that our women’s ministry go see it and follow up with a discussion over dinner. I’m hoping we can then use “Fervent” as our Bible Study.

    I’m also encouraging the women to listen to your interview with Priscilla to learn a little more about both of you and get excited about the movie.

    Thank you again for your service to the Kingdom!

    I really enjoyed the pod cast with Priscilla. My husband and I pre-viwed the movie, The War Room. Priscilla was wonderful in her role, now we know she is an actress also! We think that this movie is the best one yet made by the Kendrick brothers. We live in a small town in south Alabama and War Room is not coming to our theater. We are heart broken. It is showing in Montgomery, which is 46 miles away. We are praying for big numbers on opening week-end and maybe we will be able to get the movie in our town. I have joined Instagram just to join the 28 day challenge to pray. By following you. You are an inspiration and I know God is using you and blessing you. Thank you for all you do for God’s Kingdom.

    SO loved this convo with two women I know and love! Great insights about taking leaps of faith as God leads. Beyond proud of both of you and all the ways God is using you in your unique spheres of ministry.
