Reba’s Heartfelt Prayer for America
On the last National Day of Prayer that took place on May 3rd, country music star Reba McEntire took to Facebook to share a heartfelt prayer that she has for our nation. Since it’s original posting, the prayer has received almost 30,000 shares and 100,000 likes for McEntire’s sincere words of prayer.
“Today is going to be a beautiful day. A great day because the Lord made it,” McEntire wrote in the comment section of her Facebook post. “I pray for all of you. Thank you for your sweet comments.”
Last year McEntire released her very first gospel album, something that she feels God called her to do and share with the world.
“It’s a message from God. That’s why I’m here, not to be rich and famous and popular but to help people. I’m the conduit or, as I call it, the water hose,” McEntire told USA Today. “That’s what God wanted me to be when He gave me this voice: I’m supposed to stand up and give His message.”
McEntire believes that faith and hope is something that is always needed at every point in our lives and seasons of the country. She has adamantly stated in interviews that “it’s always the right time for faith and inspirational songs and hope.”
Take a moment to read over McEntire’s words and join her in prayer over our country.
“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, Amen.”
