Reba shared on Facebook: The idea to write the song “Pray For Peace” came to me last year as I was walking on our place in Gallatin, Tn. For days I’d sing, “Pray for Peace”, over and over. It wasn’t until several months later did the other parts start to fall in place. Some, not until we got into the studio to record it.
I feel this song is a gift from God. I have never worked on a song as long as this one. It went from a bass drum, fiddle and singers to guest artist singing with me, adding more instruments and even a choir and a bagpipe!
It’s an act of perseverance, prayer, hope, fellowship and mostly love.
Contemporary Christian Artist Amy Grant shares via Facebook: “The persistent invitation in Reba’s song to ‘pray for peace’ reaches through my stubborn cynicism and takes me to my knees. Thank you Reba for inviting all of us to raise our voices together as one and Pray For Peace!
