Pratt shared on his Instagram a special patient named Elle. Pratt and Howard got an opportunity to meet with her on Tuesday.
Bryce and I had the tremendous pleasure of spending some time with our new buddy Elle and a few other patients at Great Ormand Street Children’s Hospital in London. I’ll never fail to be moved by the unbreakable spirit of a child. #godisgood Psalm 107:8-9 Let them praise the LORD for his loving kindness, for his wonderful deeds to the children of men! For he satisfies the longing soul. He fills the hungry soul with good. 🙏🙌👆♥️ No doubt. Today my longing and hungry soul is filled.
In the Instagram caption, the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star stressed how moved he was by the “unbreakable spirit” of a child and Psalm 107:8-9:
Let them praise the LORD for his loving kindness, for his wonderful works to the children of men.For he satisfies the longing soul. He fills the hungry soul with good.
Last month, the Christian actor made headlines for receiving his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. During the unveiling ceremony, Pratt said that he owes all of his professional success, including this recent achievement, to God and his family.
In the speech, Pratt talked about what his life was like when he first moved to Hollywood almost 20 years ago. At that time, Pratt lived a block away from the Walk of Fame. He noted that while living in the area, he watched as a man varnished the Hollywood stars on a daily basis. Now, two decades later, Pratt shared how grateful he is to have a star of his own.
The actor described the incredible role his mother played in supporting him long before he earned big-screen fame.
“I’m a man of faith, and I believe that God works in mysterious ways and gives us signs and gifts in life —and those gifts oftentimes come in the form of people,” he continued. “[My mother] gave absolutely everything she had to raise us, every fiber of her being. And oftentimes, we weren’t cash-rich, but we were never love-poor. You gave everything and you were always proud of me, way before this.”
