Faith is generally considered a highly personal and private matter, especially in today’s increasingly secular world, but some celebrities are refreshingly open about their religious practices. Perhaps the pressures and temptations of being a famous personality make the guidance of a higher power all the more essential. The following stars depend on some form of prayer to get through the day. Praying helps center them and provides them with the moments of peace and clarity they need to combat the chaos that sometime accompanies their lives in the spotlight.
1. Mark Wahlberg
Mark Wahlberg grew up on the tough streets of Boston but managed to make it from rags to riches. According to the star, he prays every single day to be a good servant to God as well as a good husband and father. The devout Catholic plays a lot of different roles on the screen, but in his real life, being a good guy is what’s most important.
