"Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson has unveiled her own personal prayer room, which she was inspired to create after watching War Room, a faith-based film from the Kendrick brothers focusing on the power of prayer.

The 18-year-old model and "Live Original" author took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a photo of the cozy green-and-gray room and encourage others to find their own quiet place to pray and spend time with God.

"The movie War Room really inspired me - so here is mine," she captioned the photo.

"What a War Room is all about is a room secluded from anything else," Willie and Korie's daughter continued. "A room where it's solely for you and God to talk. It is for you to prepare for the daily battles & struggles we all go through. For you to have a pre-day, mid-day or post-day talk or cry with God. It is for you to find your identity in HIM! To find your strength in HIM!"

She added, "I encourage everyone to find a war room of your own. Maybe it's in your closet, maybe it's a little wooden camper, or maybe it's just in your car. Take that time out of your day to focus on the most important relationship in your life, and make it personal."

As of Wednesday afternoon, Robertson's photo had been "liked" over 40,000 times with many commenting words of encouragement and sharing prayer requests.

"Your prayer life is a very good test of spiritual maturity. I love it!" wrote one person.

"This is so cute! I want one! Love the thought of that peace and alone time with God!" added another.

War Room hit theaters on Aug. 28 and focuses on the lives of Tony and Elizabeth Jordan, whose seemingly perfect lives are crumbling under the strain of a failing marriage. However, Elizabeth's life is changed when she meets Miss Clara, an elderly prayer warrior who teaches her how to establish a battle plan of prayer for her family.

The overtly faith-based drama, which stars T.C. Stallings, Karen Abercrombie, Priscilla Shirer and Beth Moore, shocked Hollywood by earning a staggering $11 million in its box-office debut its opening weekend despite playing in only 1,135 theaters.

In an exclusive interview with the Gospel Herald in July, War Room producers Alex and Stephen Kendrick, who are also behind the award-winning films Courageous and Fireproof, said they decided to make the film to highlight the desperate need for prayer in today's culture.

"Our number one goal in making movies has always been, 'How can we advance the kingdom of God, and how can we take the Gospel to the ends of the earth,'" Alex said. "God has given us such a privileged opportunity through a relationship with Jesus Christ to approach Him for whatever our needs are. In our generation, we will only survive as a Church and really evangelize the world if we will first fight out our battles in prayer."

The film is also accompanied by Bible study components and other resources, which the brothers hope will serve as ammunition for churches to better disciple Christians on the power and necessity of prayer.

"We see the wisdom of the Lord in the timing of the War Room message," Stephen said. "We're seeing a nation becoming increasingly racially divided. But we're seeing the Church rally around prayer and becoming more and more united."

He added, "We pray God will use this film as a means to rally the church back to prayer, because we know that when prayer happens, He will be true to His word and His character, and every ministry of every Church will be blessed, and we will become salt and light to the world."
