Actor Chris Pratt has always enjoyed sharing his faith with fans, and his latest social media post is sure to inspire Christians of all ages. Relevant Magazine has reported that after receiving his own star on the Hollywood walk of fame, Pratt took to Instagram crediting God for his success. The icon behind Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World expressed his gratitude with a verse from Psalm 126:3,

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

Pratt also issued a heartfelt thanks to the many people who had encouraged him to follow his dreams.

This not only marks a pivotal moment in Pratt’s acting career, but it also demonstrates the ability of vocal believers to succeed in Hollywood. Vanity Fair even conducted an interview with Pratt where he described how he became a Christian. When he was younger and living in Hawaii, he recalls sitting outside a grocery store looking for someone to buy him beer because he was under age. In Pratt’s own words, “A guy named Henry came up and recognized something in me that needed to be saved.”

He continues,

“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.”

Looking back on his story, it’s clear Psalm 126:3 was the perfect verse, for God has indeed done great things!
