Sister Sonyas Prayer Group


A story of reconciliation, understanding, truth and compassion which alludes to the tradition of David Talbert and Tyler Perry. When an attractive single father joins an all women’s prayer group, the delicate balance between friendship and rivalry, truth and deception is upset. Sparks fly, traditions fall, love blossoms and everybody gets their groove back as a groups of friends deal with family, relationships, children and a predatory preacher.

Dove Review

This is a black comedy that brings to light the issues in today’s society. Although these issues are nothing to laugh about, the topics of relationships, respect and faith reveal in this story some true but hilarious situations. Sister Sonya and her friends show how ridiculous people can be as they react to things.

Even though this movie is geared toward the black community, people from all cultures can learn a thing or two. Because of some respect issues and situations it is recommended for 12+. Dove happily awards the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this DVD.
