When prayer and family come first we can't help but be impressed.
Actor and family man Mark Wahlberg recently revealed his grueling daily routine on Instagram. At first glance you may be stunned at the incredible hour he wakes up on an average day (he really is an early worm!). Then, looking further, you’ll be impressed with his dedication to staying fit — the dad of four stays action-hero-ready by including two daily workouts as well as some golf. But what really caught our eye is the first thing Wahlberg does after waking up at 2.30 a.m. — and yes, you read that right, 2.30 a.m. — is prayer.
A devout Catholic, Wahlberg gets up while most of us are snoozing away and spends half an hour with God.
Although the Hollywood star makes time for twice daily business meetings, he also slots in ample family time which includes picking up his kids from school when he’s not busy on a film shoot. I guess it’s no surprise that the 47-year-old tucks himself in to bed at 7.30 p.m.
While Wahlberg has always been more than happy to share his deep Catholic faith, it’s refreshing to see such a concrete record of how prayer and family really do come first in his life.
