Written and Directed by Amy Berg 

When Warren Jeffs rose to Prophet of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints (FLDS), he took control of a religion with a history of polygamous and underage marriage. In a short time Jeffs expanded these practices, growing in power at an unprecedented rate. By mirroring the concept of sister wives and ecclesiastical rape, he changed the moral compass of his followers. Prophet’s Pray examines Jeffs’ life, showing his rise to Prophet, worshipped by tens of thousands. Despite a trail of abuse and ruined lives, many of his faithful followers would give their life with just one word from him.
