During his appearance on Fox & Friends, actor Mark Wahlberg talked about faith and the power of prayer meditations, and how it helped him improve as a person.


People are always asking, what are you giving up? I’ve given many things up for Lent, whether it be alcohol or something sweet, but for me, it’s really about trying to do more, trying to be better, trying to grow as a person, as a servant. God, a father, a husband as an example, and using all that real-life experience that I have.”

He told the host that he “absolutely” spends his morning on his knees saying his prayers, making his faith a priority before starting his daily routines.

People always ask, ‘Why can’t you have a normal schedule?’ My thing is, if I’m at home, I do all the things that I need to do that are personal time before the kids and my wife get up. I always get eight hours of sleep. It’s not like I’m burning the candle at both ends, per se. I’m getting the rest that I need.”

He went on to describe his usual day as going to bed as early as 7 p.m. and getting up at 3 a.m. to do his meditations, after which he begins his work for the day, either going to the gym or working on sets.

It is not every day fans come across an actor who talks about his faith in interviews. Mark Wahlberg confessed it is important for him to share his beliefs without forcing it on other people. He stated via Today:


I don’t want to jam it down anybody’s throat, but I do not deny my faith. That’s an even bigger sin. You know, it’s not popular in my industry, but I cannot deny my faith. It’s important for me to share that with people. But, I have friends from all walks of life and all different types of faiths and religions, so it’s important to respect and honor them as well.”

He admitted he does not force his family to follow his religion, but they are very aware that he needs to start his day with prayers, reading the Scripture, or attending a mass. Still, he wishes they would also embrace it if they see that it could also work for them.
