Chris Pratt Shares The Amazing Way He Got Saved

We're not used to Hollywood celebrities sharing their amazing conversion story. But Chris Pratt is not following the ordinary model for Hollywood.

Though he is one of the highest paid actors with a new hit movie, "Passengers", coming out, Pratt is a committed family man who is vocal about his faith.  He shared in Vanity Fair how it all started, when he was a young man living in Hawaii.

Pratt worked at a Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant, reports the Christian Post. He and his friends were too young to drink, so they would send others to buy alcohol for them.

"I was sitting outside a grocery store ... 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,'" Pratt shared.

"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," Pratt continued.

Vanity Fair called his testimony "strange", noting that it was "so distant from what we expect of a movie star." But Pratt doesn't seem to care. The article went on to say that his conversion moment put his entire life on a set course.

But in 2012, his and his wife's faith were greatly tested. Pratt's wife, actress Anna Faris, gave birth 9 weeks prematurely to their son, Jack.

Spending a month in intensive care, Pratt shared:

"We were scared for a long time. We prayed a lot," Pratt confessed. The parents hung onto their faith while little Jack spent a month in intensive care.

"It restored my faith in God, not that it needed to be restored, but it really redefined it," Pratt said. "The baby was so beautiful to us, and I look back at the photos of him and it must have been jarring for other people to come in and see him, but to us he was so beautiful and perfect."

Pratt's public display of faith last Easter also went against the anti-Christian current in America. Pratt erected a giant cross and posted the picture to Twitter.

He wrote: "It's Saturday before Easter, if you think about it, that's what Jesus was doing 2000-something years before on a Saturday before Easter, was carrying a cross up a hill!'"

We love seeing a man who is not afraid to pray for his sick child, be faithful to his wife, and profess his faith in Jesus! We pray God blesses Pratt and his family. Do you agree?
