Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This motion picture portrays the unique and heartfelt story of Pamela Bucklin from her birth in 1969 to her wedding day in 1991. It also contrasts two Christian girls and their different outlook toward purity and dating. All of Pamela's friends were dating. She was not. And it seemed unfair that her father insisted on such a high standard of purity. Yes, it seemed unfair...until the day she married.

Review

Truly a wonderful story! May we have more dads who are like this dad was. a must for every Christian home who has young people. --Judith from Bethel Springs TN

I loved this movie. I recommend it as a gift for a teenager who is waiting for the right guy. It brought tears to my and my husband's eyes. --Rita from La Puente CA

This is an encouraging movie of what purity can look like, and that it can be preserved, even in our world gone mad. I have had the privilege of meeting a number of Pamela's in my life. I remain thankful that God can and does honor the choice of purity. This is a simple and uplifting film, worth the time, and offering the right message. --Susan, Ph.D. from Wynnewood Pa

Pamela's mother died when she was young. But her father was dedicated to pray with her every day, even when he was out of town. He raised her with love and firm rules. She was not allowed to date, and her father expected her to save her first kiss for the altar of marriage. These are hard standards, especially for a youth in our culture. While she rebels against them at one point, she comes to see that her father is right. Especially when she meets and marries her husband. The movie is low budget, and has mediocre acting. However the beauty of the story overides these factors. Much of this story is told through the effective use of music and image rather than words. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good Christian film, or wanting to communicate the value of purity to their teens or preteens.

This is a poignant and well-done film about a young Christian girl who considers disobeying her father's command that she never kiss before marriage. Pamela's Prayer is a movie that really stands--almost alone--against the legions of immoral junk films produced by Hollywood's "Kissing Industry." This movie is also very effective as a means of spreading His Word. I persuaded the rabbi at my former synagogue to show Pamela's Prayer, and the reaction was amazing, especially among the teenagers. They'd felt a lot of pressure in school to kiss and get kissed, and Pamela's Prayer offered them a new way.
And if you've ever worked at a Christian Film Library, this movie is a must see: I've never seen a more accurate depiction of the hubbub and frenetic activity of a CFL on film.

The content of this movie is excellent. But it is obviously low budget. As a teaching tool for helping my daughters gain a godly perspective on purity, I think this movie is most helpful.
We are a homeschool family. We are very desirous for our children to have a healthy, kingdom view of marriage and a sweet anticipation of intimacy with a future spouse. We are of the view that our bodies are a gift from God to our mate and we can only give it the first time once. Kissing, too, is a part of the whole beautiful "package". Ofcourse we distinguish between affectionate family 'pecking' and, as my girls say 'married kisses'.
I have found that keeping things hidden and running from issues just leads to insatiable curiosity and opens the children up for perverse world views to seep into their thinking. You have to be well aware of what is godly and healthy to be then able to recognize what is ungodly and unhealthy. So, in our home, questions are always answered in truth - even the difficult and/or perhaps uncomfortable ones. We have set clear standards, viewed as "high" by most of the world, but we veiw them as normal, healthy and wise life choices.
I don't mind my children speaking about kissing. But I care very much 'what' they have to say and what thier 'feelings' are. Otherwise I might find that my teaching isn't 'taking'.
And that prospect, to me, would be failure.
Pamela's Prayer can be helpful to parents who will take the time to truthfully share and listen with their adolecents and youths. We were able to talk about several issues related to remaining pure (ie.

I wish that I had seen this movie before I reached puberty and I really wish that I had known about it when I was raising my son. Modern Christians and worldly people might mock this simple message of purity, but those who understand its deep spiritual truth will love it. If you have young children heading for their teen years, I highly recommend that you watch and be prepared to discuss the wisdom portrayed in this movie with them.

I bought this movie around 10 years ago or so. I really enjoyed the movie because of the purity message. More people need to get on board with the message of purity in relationships. Life is not about sex, dating, or kissing. It's about loving God and our neighbors as we love ourselves. If we really love, we won't do all the bad stuff that we hear about in the news, social media, etc.

A nice movie with a wonderful moral. It is an early christian movie so there are no thrills but it gets its point across.

A father tries to teach his daughter in the admonition of the Lord by keeping herself pure before marriage. He prays for her and tries to help her see the purpose in waiting for the one that God has for her.

Finally, a film with good morals AND realistic dialogue. This is no "Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen Visit Grandma's" sappy love-fest. Pam's Prayer tells it like it is. You enter the halls of a real high school and witness the sinful underbelly of teen life. As a teen myself, I could really relate to the "cool" predator male who brags to his pals about fabricated exploits with the unassuming virginal girl. It's a story as true and as old as time. The dialogue is bold, the costuming amazingly true to the era (the movie takes place between 1970 and present day) and Serena Orrego's acting is just breathtaking. Before your very eyes she grows from a trusting crowd-follower to an unquestioning believer. Her remarkable acting range takes her character all the way from an obedient daughter to a giving wife. Pam's Prayer proves that one must cut one self off from anything that may lead to the remote possibly of any hint of temptation if one is to remain pure. The character of Pamela is a shining example of a female who is brave enough to separate herself, with the gentle guidance of her father and husband, from any thought that may force her to do unchristian things. A true inspiration. Top notch indeed!
