“Faith is the most important thing. This is how I start my day, every day. The moment I open my eyes, before I turn on the light or do anything, I pray. "
Iinterviewed by Caron Butler, Mark Wahlberg has once again chosen to put his was in Jesus forward. Whether it is for his past choices, his current involvement or in the organization of his day, the internationally renowned actor has repeated that "faith is the most important thing".
The actor begins by specifying that each of his days begins in the prayer.
“Faith is the most important thing. This is how I start my day, every day. The moment I open my eyes, before I turn on the light or do anything, I pray. I go to my prayer room and take those 15 or 20 minutes to express my gratitude. I pray for everyone I have in my life and for those I have met along the way. People who have been positive in my life. The people I know who are going through difficult times of illness. This is how I start my day and then I read my prayer book. "
The actor adds that after a difficult past, things changed in his life when he turned to God. He knows that what he has received he now wants to share.
“I know God hasn't blessed me with all of this to say, 'forget where you're from and go and enjoy your good life.' I now have the opportunity and responsibility to give back, and inspire others, no matter where you are from or what obstacles you have encountered, if you stand up and do the right thing ... then good things will happen to you. "
And when the actor looks at the losses, the disappointments, he takes comfort in knowing that there is "a paradise, there is a better place". So he pursues his goal, "to be a good servant, a good father, a husband, a son, a friend, a neighbor, a leader and a disciple of those who truly serve."
