War Room (Paperback)Chris Fabry
What Fireproof did for your Marriage … War Room will do for your Prayer Life; read the story and change your prayer life!
Juggling motherhood and her job as a real-estate agent, Elizabeth Jordan wishes her husband could help more around the house. But Tony’s rising career as a pharmaceutical salesman demands more and more of his time. With a nice home in the suburbs and a lovely young daughter, they appear to have it all—yet they can’t seem to spend time together without fighting.
Hoping for a new listing, Elizabeth visits the home of Clara Williams, an elderly widow, and is both amused and uncomfortable when Clara starts asking pointed questions about her marriage and faith. But it’s Clara’s secret prayer room, with its walls covered in requests and answers, that has Elizabeth most intrigued . . . even if she’s not ready to take Clara’s suggestion that she create a prayer room of her own. As tensions at home escalate, though, Elizabeth begins to realize that her family is worth fighting for, and she can’t win this battle on her own. Stepping out in blind faith, putting her prayers for her family and their future in God’s hands, might be her only chance at regaining the life she was meant for.

Elizabeth Jordan noticed everything wrong with the house
she was selling before she ever knocked on the front door.
She saw flaws in the landscaping and cracks in the drive-
way and a problem with the drainage of the roof near the
garage. Just before she knocked three times, she saw chip-
ping paint on a windowsill. This was her job. Presentation
was everything. You had only one chance to make a first
impression with a potential buyer.
She saw her reflection in a window and straightened
her shoulders, tugging on her dark jacket. She had her hair
back, which accentuated her strong face. Prominent nose,
high forehead, and chocolaty skin. Elizabeth had a lineage
she could trace back over 150 years. She had taken a trip
with her husband and infant daughter ten years earlier to
a plantation in the Deep South where her great-great-great-
grandmother had lived. The little shack had been rebuilt,
along with other slave quarters on the property, and the
owners had searched the country for any relatives. Just walk-
ing inside made her feel like she was touching the heart of
her ancestors, and she fought back tears as she imagined
their lives. She’d held her daughter close and thanked God
for the perseverance of her people, their legacy, and the
opportunities she had that they could never imagine.
Elizabeth waited until the door opened, then smiled at
the slightly younger woman before her. Melissa Tabor held
a box of household items and struggled to maintain the cell
phone balanced on her shoulder. Her mouth rounded into
“Mom, I gotta go,” she said into the phone.
Elizabeth smiled, patiently waiting.
Over her shoulder, Melissa said, “Jason and David, get
rid of the ball and help me with these boxes!"
Elizabeth wanted to reach out and help her but had to
duck as a kickball flew past her head. It bounced harmlessly
in the yard behind her and she laughed.
