McEntire and thousands of her closest friends pray for peace

Reba McEntire is praying for peace, and she wants you to also.  So much so that she has begun a campaign (complete with video and a potential hit song) asking others to join in on this sacred endeavor…

Gayle Thompson of The Boot explains that McEntire strongly
believes “in the power of prayer.”  McEntire herself has stated,
“Every time I watch the news, I’m just waiting for a story with
a happy ending…  I find myself praying for peace, and a better
outcome for the world.”

This is not the first time that McEntire has proclaimed her spiritual leanings.  During a 2008 interview with Alan Petrucelli of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, McEntire revealed that she believes in reincarnation and “has been here before as a man.”

She told Petrucelli that these disclosures would likely shock her many Christian fans.  Her response to their potential condemnation?  “…I’m sorry, but this is how I live my life, this is what I believe…  Who knows?  Maybe I’m part Buddhist.”

Famed Buddhist Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, also publicly prays for peace.  While
spiritually advocating for “humble sentient beings, tormented by sufferings without cease,” the Dalai Lama has repeatedly requested:  May all their fears from unbearable war, famine, and disease be pacified…
