Reba McEntire Offers a Powerful Prayer on National Day of Prayer
Reba McEntire is celebrating the National Day of Prayer by offering fans an emotional prayer of her own.
The country legend turned to social media to post her own thoughts on the National Day of Prayer:
Heavenly Father, I pray for peace, joy, health and wisdom for my family, friends, our nation and our leaders. I pray that you heal the heart of our enemies. Give them peace and happiness. I pray for forgiveness for our sins and those of our enemies. I pray for God‘s will, not my will. I pray for God‘s way, not my way. Thank you Lord for your love. I love you with all my heart, soul, mind and strength.
In Jesus name I pray,
McEntire has made no secret of her deep-seated faith. She released a song titled "Pray for Peace" in 2015, and included it on her Love Somebody album. She followed that up with Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope, a double album comprising partly traditional hymns and partly new gospel songs, including the single "Back to God."
Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope took home Best Roots Gospel Album at the 2018 Grammy Awards in January.
"Our job in the entertainment business is to heal hearts. That's what God put me on this earth for, I know it is," McEntire said in her acceptance speech. "To help other people. I love my job. I'm so grateful to get to do it ... I'm gonna give this back to God."
