The war room in the film is a room for praying.
There is a prayer by Ms. Clara that cuts to the heart in the film impressed greatly among Chinese Christians:
"You've done it again, Lord. You've done it again. You are good and You are mighty and You are merciful! And You keep taking care of me when I don't deserve it. Praise you, Jesus. You're the Lord.
"Give me another one, Lord. Guide me to who You want me to help. Raise up more that will call upon Your name! Raise up more that will call upon Your name! Raise up those that love You and seek You and trust You! Raise them up, Lord. Raise them up!
"Lord, we need a generation of believers who are not ashamed of the gospel. We need an army of believers, Lord. They hate to be lukewarm and will stand on Your word above all else. Raise them up, Lord. Raise them up.
"I pray for unity among those that love You. I pray that You open their eyes so that they can see your truth, Lord. I pray for your hand of protection and guidance.
"Raise up a generation, Lord, that will take light into the world. They will not compromise when under pressure! They will not cower, Lord, when others fall away! Raise them up, Lord, that they will proclaim that there is salvation in the name of Jesus Christ!
"Raise up warriors, Lord, who will fight on their knees, who will worship You with their whole hearts, Lord. Lord, call us to battle, that we may proclaim You King of Kings and Lord of Lords! I pray these things with all my heart! Raise them up, Lord! Raise them up! "
