Actor Chris Pratt, who had been vocal about his Christian faith, recently posted that a wooden tray engraved with a picture of Jesus and the verse Philippians 4:13 is his favorite possession.

In an Instagram post, Pratt shared: 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.”

He goes on to say that at first he thought about asking his brother to make his tray with an “American bald eagle smoking a cigar, holding a machine gun,” but then he had a better, more meaningful idea.

“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 … So I though [sic] 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's a unique individual and my best friend.”

Philippians 4:13 is a popular verse which reads:  “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
