II Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (KJV)
America's best hope at this time is to turn to God. We are heading down the same road as those in Promise, TX - without hope. This movie is sure to spark the light in those that are truly seeking for God to do great things. The plot was totally different than what I was expecting. It will definitely get you thinking about your own prayer life and how you can change things in your life if you just seek God's help. It's about a town that is broken, hit with hard times a town that knows struggles, but one that knows how to fight and come back swinging. A special boy that shows up out of the blue and knows everything about the town and its people and shows them the true importance of prayer. I wasn't sure I'd like the movie, but I did totally enjoy it. It is a good clean family movie. No swear words. There was a brief scene of a young girl with misuse of drugs. Drinking was implied but I can't recall any scenes that they showed any drinking; if so it was very brief. There are funny parts and more serious parts and as always you'll love Dean Cain and his role as sheriff. It is a movie that if taken seriously can change you as a person and make your walk with Jesus a closer one. Excellent film by Echolight studios. One that can leave a lasting impression if your heart is right. I don't have enough thumbs to raise for this one.
All things made new.Promise, Texas is no place to raise a family. There’s no rain, businesses are failing, and the kids can’t wait to grow up and move away. Some folks say the town is cursed. But just when things are at their darkest, a mysterious boy wanders out of the wilderness with nothing but the clothes on his back and a strange mat tucked under his arm. He has a message for the people of Promise, but they’re slow to listen. They are blind to the similarities between the slow death of the town and their own parched souls. Confronted by their spiritual shortcomings, the town’s indignation turns to outrage. Still, the boy holds true to his message: there is no hope without Christ, and Promise can only be remade through earnest communion with the Father. In the end, with his back against the wall — surrounded by skeptics — the boy is forced to reveal his true identity.
