Effectual Fervent Prayer of the Righteous Will Always Conquer (James 5:16 KJV) in JESUS NAME! Amen!
Verified purchase
As I've already shared...
Prayer only fails when a person is lacking in faith and NOT praying GOD's WORD, to back up what their praying and believing HIM for. But, you MUST come through JESUS to get to GOD, my HEAVENLY FATHER (John 14:6 KJV). In other words, whoever comes to GOD, in prayer, must believe that HE is GOD and a REWARDER of them that DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM (Hebrews 11:6 KJV)! So, you're right prayer does fail all the time for those who are not praying according to GOD's HOLY WORD, the BIBLE because HE said in HIS WORD that HIS WORD shall not return to HIM void. This means that if you're believing and praying to GOD to heal someone from cancer or any sickness, disease, illness, etc. YOU MUST PRAY HIS WORD BACK TO HIM!

For example, let me teach you how to pray GOD's WORD back to HIM to get your prayers answered: " Dear HEAVENLY FATHER, YOU said in YOUR WORD that "by HIS (JESUS) stripes we were healed" (Isaiah 53:5 KJV). Therefore, I decree and receive that by JESUS' stripes I am already healed from the satan' evil spirits of any and every terminal illness, sickness, and disease and curse them at the root and seeds of them in my mind, my heart, my body, my soul, and my spirit and send them back to the devil-satan and all his followers NOW in JESUS NAME!!! And, I decree that NO weapon formed against me shall NOT prosper against me" (Isaiah 54:17 KJV) because FATHER GOD, YOUR WORD from Psalms 91 is manifested in every area and aspect of my life including my mind, my heart, my body, my soul, and my spirit NOW and FOREVER in JESUS NAME!!! Amen!!!

So, in order to get your prayers answered by the ONLY TRUE AND LIVING GOD, you MUST take HIM at HIS WORD because IT will NEVER return to HIM void (or unanswered) (Isaiah 55:11 KJV). GOD always answers according to your faith in HIS WORD (Matthew 9:29 KJV). In JESUS NAME, GOD Bless...
Lastly...So, now do you understand what praying is all about?
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing BY PRAYER and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto GOD.
7 And the peace of GOD, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through CHRIST JESUS.

Inspiring Call to Fight For Freedom No matter what the cost!
Verified purchase
Powerful atheist Judge, played by Lorenzo Lamas, is physically abusing his son! When the son is losing all hope, he asks an inspiring coach who sacrificially loves all the students, to help him start a conversation with God for help. They go to a room and pray. His assistant coach sees an opportunity to get his boss fired, so he could become the coach. The principal who had been embezzling money, and challenged by the coach to come out with the truth before the coach did it for him, saw an opportunity to hide his sins. The Judge Dad attempts to physically beat his son for not wanting to lie about his coach but the coach puts himself in front of the son. The principal and the Judge abuse their powers to get coach fired.

An agnostic gambling attorney who had not won any real case for decades and desperate for money, siphons money out of the coach to 'represent' him. The school has super powered attorneys from the aclu come over to CRUSH this weak attorney. The coach who always taught his team to FIGHT as they prayed, is now challenged by his students to stand up and fight! Now it was his turn to FIGHT FOR FREEDOM! In seemingly hopeless condition, the movie continues in court with a powerful performance by several famous and some not so famous actors.

The final shackled scene is an inspiring moment for all of us to watch!

Excellent, Moving Movie
Verified purchase
I often find the acting in Christian movies to be wooden, stilted, and not terribly credible. I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the character development. I did find the physical appearance of the coach to be somewhat distracting, as every coach I've known has been clean-cut and professional-looking, but beyond that, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

Even the subplot worked fine for me.

To the be-raters who were turned off by the heavy emphasis on faith and religion throughout the movie, I have to ask, "If you are not a Christian, WHY you would choose to watch a movie with a title like Prayer Never Fails?" If you are not of a Judeo-Christian persuasion, skip this, as you'll be disappointed and/or disgusted. It is a faith-based movie, and it is advertised as such (no false advertising here).

Bad acting and editing
Verified purchase
This movie has a great story line that could have been done so much better. Very disappointed in the acting and editing/production of the movie. Weird camera angles, weak script and flow. I wanted to love it as a Christian, but it was so poorly done. The main character actor didn't seem to be the right fit for the story as a whole. It was painful to watch, but we did finish it. Even my 14 year old son felt the same. My 10 year old son was confused, due to the lack of clarity and flow of the script. There was some great points made, but not enough to carry the whole movie. I would love to see the Kendrick brothers. It would have been a much better movie.

Much Better than Expected! This Movie Did Everything We want a Good Movie to Do
Verified purchase
This movie surprised me. Prayer Never Fails has been on my saved list for over a year. Today, I watched it and I'm very glad that I did. The movie is about a young man whose career has been unjustly terminated and his quest to get it back, and about another man in crisis whose life intersects at a pivotol moment with the young man and how that key connection brings about a remarkable chain of events for them both. Prayer Never Fails moves a little slow, but it's a good pace for the development of the story. I found it to be entirely believable and it had a couple of surprises. I experienced all the emotions that we want from a really good, heart-touching movies. It inspired me. The movie left a warm feeling in my heart. I will keep it on my saved movies list and I anticipate watching it again next year.

Good message, not the best production
Verified purchase
This is typically what most people think of as a "Christian Movie" - First, there is a sense of being attacked by society - as is the case with the coach who was fired for prayer, the conspiracy of evil schools that refuse to hire him, and so on. Then there's the somewhat lackadaisical production values. I have to say I watched this movie hoping for a little sports mixed in with the inspirational message, but alas there was none. Just a bunch of flatly drawn prototypical characters doing predictable things. There are better choices in this genre.

DVD Prayer Never Fails is a very good movie about a young man who lost his job ...
Verified purchase
DVD Prayer Never Fails is a very good movie about a young man who lost his job as a coach in a high school for praying with a student who had come to him seeking help. Despite all the troubles that came his way, he always trusted God and kept on praying. He found a lawyer to help him, a lawyer who had big troubles of his own. It's a very moving story. The only part I didn't care for was the rap music that was used on the whole DVD.

There is no "separation of church and state" in the Constitution. That is BS designed to obstruct our religious origins. The Constitution forbids the STATE from establishing a religion, not the state controlling individuals. Overwhelming history: Dobson, "Original Intent" Further, the hero here did not "lead" his classes in prayer. There is certainly a distaste for state controlled religion, but praying privately extends the reach of the subversives, who are very clever at destroying by increment.
