Actor Chris Pratt to MTV music audience: ‘God is real. God loves you. Learn to pray.’A
VIDEO: Full acceptance speech by Chris Pratt at 2018 MTV music’s ‘Generation Award.’ (His ‘God is Real’ line comes in at number six in his ‘Nine Rules’ monologue).
Never afraid to share his faith, Pratt provided a list of “9 Rules from Chris Pratt, Generation Award Winner.” He addressed it to the young people in the audience.
To the Next Generation
“I’m going to cut to the chase and I am going to speak to you, the next generation. I accept the responsibility as your elder. So, listen up.”
“You have a soul. Be careful with it,” he told the crowd. “God is real. God loves you. God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do.”
He finished his speech by saying that, “Nobody’s perfect. People are going to tell you you’re perfect just the way you are. You’re not. You’re imperfect. You always will be, but there is a powerful source that designed you that way and if you’re willing to accept that, you will have grace. And grace is a gift. And like the freedom that we enjoy in this country, that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget it. Don’t take it for granted. God bless you.”
