Actor Chris Pratt Rare Exception in Young Hollywood, Attends Christian Concert Professing Faith


In today’s culture, it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to be open about your faith. As a Christian, this should come as no surprise. Jesus told His disciples that they would face opposition in John 15.

This is especially true in young Hollywood. There are very few examples of proud, openly-professing Christians. Chris Pratt is among those few.

You may have seen the 38-year-old actor star in movies such as Jurassic World, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Lego Movie. You can see more of Pratt’s quirky and lovable personality on his social media. I particularly relate to his #WHATSMYSNACK videos:

Silly videos aside, Pratt also is open about his faith — both on social media and in life. When Pratt learned a young fan of his was dying of cancer, he encouraged his other fans to pray.

“The power of prayer saved my son. This boy Sam needs a miracle. Say a prayer for Sam. Even if you never have b4.Try, ‘Lord I pray for Sam. May You put Your healing hand on him Father. May his family find grace in this difficult time,’” Pratt posted.

So my brother, @cullypratt makes these awesome pocket dump trays. We all need a place to throw our wallets, keys, cell-phones, lighters, pistols or whatever else we keep in your pocket so you know exactly where it is the next day. Well he wanted to make me one and asked me what I wanted on it. I went for the usual chris answer, American bald eagle smoking a cigar, holding a machine gun and an American flag whirling all bad ass in the wind maybe with some nunchucks or something. But then I thought a lot about being homesick. I'd like having a touchstone that I could take with me as I travel on the road for work. Something less straight up bad ass hero and more homesick in need of comfort. So I though about this great bible verse Philippians 4:13 which I've relied on for strength from time to time. And he knocks this thing out in like a day!! Reclaimed wood and a wood burner. All by hand. He does all kinds of awesome art stuff and in proud of him. He's so awesome and you should follow him. He's a unique individual and my best friend. An army veteran and a sheriffs deputy who has seen a lot of shit in his life but gets up everyday to go to work and help people having bad days cause he's a real hero. A hero who loves to make something out of nothing with his bare hands. He's very good and when we were kids he used to make me smell his finger and I always fell for it and I wore his clothes and worshiped him and I still do to this day. Thanks to my big brother from the same mother for my awesome #cullypepper dump tray. It's my favorite thing I have.

He has also shared a photo of a gift his brother made for him with a verse that Pratt said he has “relied on for strength from time to time.”

He and his son have been attending Zoe Church in Los Angeles, California. In fact, Pratt promoted his pastor’s book on Facebook. He said that “Faith Forward Future” by Chad Veech has helped him keep faith during the split with Anna Farris, his wife of 8 years.

Most recently, he set aside some time to attend a Christian concert with Zach Williams, Matthew West, and for KING & COUNTRY in Ontario, Canada. The artists were excited to meet him.

Both Williams and West posted pictures on their Instagrams. Williams’ caption reads, “Had a great time hanging with @prattprattpratt. Such a down to Earth dude! Praying blessings over him and his career.”

Matthew West wrote, “Huge fan of this guy! @prattprattpratt”

It’s refreshing to see someone in Hollywood so unapologetically vocal about his faith. It makes me like him even more!
