Pray for Peace: Reba McEntire
Reba McEntire has just released a new single entitled 'Pray for Peace'. She says the idea came to her during a walk on her property where she was singing to herself, "Pray for peace." From a simple beginning, the song has taken on its own life and the clip presents an extremely poignant and powerful message. Reba says of the song, "It’s an act of perseverance, prayer, hope, fellowship and mostly love." http://www.reba.com
Reba's song has coincidentally been released at a time when people are united in their devastation at the tragic loss of passengers on MH17. It's a time when we are painfully aware of the need and desire for world peace.
As Spirited! focuses on simple ways to promote values, including peace, Reba's song is a powerful way to promote community awareness for world peace. Celebrities including Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman have already shown their support for Reba's initiative. How compelling it would be to have faith communities endorse this initiative by prayerfully and vigorously singing and following the actions.
It is vital that along with the unified chorus, "Pray for Peace" our behaviour reflects the ideals of Reba's song. Our every day behaviour and actions can promote and encourage peace in our family and our community; the first step towards world peace. What is one action we can do today that reflects Reba's ideals of "perseverance, ... fellowship and mostly love?"
