Actor Chris Pratt Gives Credit Where Credit’s Due for His Hollywood Star

Actor Chris Pratt, 37, is not like the many God-hating heathens, pagans, and anti-American Marxists in the cesspool that is Hollywood.

Pratt, whose career has skyrocketed since his hilarious role playing goofball Andy Dwyer in the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation into full-blown mega movie star status, including the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” is getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Chris Pratt, the son of a Safeway worker and miner who grew up in the small town of Lake Stevens, Washington, who at one point in his life was homeless in Hawaii sleeping in a van and a tent on the beach, got a sneak peak of his Hollywood Star being constructed and took to Instagram to post a picture of the star being made.

Pratt quoted from the Holy Bible, Psalm 126:3, to credit God:

“The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” 

Psalm 126:3 “The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” Thank you to the many, many people who empowered me to follow my dreams. #surreal #gotgvol2 #WHATSMYSNACK

“It’s nice to have your family with you because it brings you down to earth and when you leave your feet on the ground, you realize what it feels like to have your head in the clouds,” he said in an interview with ET Online.

Earlier this year, Pratt told  Vanity Fair about how accepting Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior turned his life around while in Hawaii:

“I was sitting outside a grocery store—we’d convinced someone to go in and buy us beer. This is Maui. And a guy named Henry came up and recognized something in me that needed to be saved. He asked what I was doing that night, and I was honest. I said, ‘My friend’s inside buying me alcohol.’ ‘You going to go party?’ he asked. ‘Yeah.’ ‘Drink and do drugs? Meet girls, fornication?’ I was like, ‘I hope so.’ I was charmed by this guy, don’t know why. He was an Asian dude, maybe Hawaiian, in his 40s. It should’ve made me nervous but didn’t. I said, ‘Why are you asking?’ He said, ‘Jesus told me to talk to you…’ At that moment I was like, I think I have to go with this guy. He took me to church. Over the next few days I surprised my friends by declaring that I was going to change my life.”

As CBN News reported, Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” is Pratt’s favorite biblical verse.

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.
