Watching Chris Pratt Read The Christmas Story From The Bible At Disney Is Pure Magic

Actor Chris Pratt read the Christmas story from the bible to Disney park guests attending the Christmas Candlelight Ceremony.

As much as Hollywood and the left mock religion and Christianity in particular, it’s refreshing to see movie stars who are open about their faith. Guardians of the Galaxy’s Chris Pratt is one of them. Pratt created a magical Disney moment when he shared the Christmas story from the bible with park guests.

Disney’s Christmas Candlelight Ceremony

Chris Pratt was a guest at Disneyland in California for their Christmas Candlelight Ceremony. To make the night even more special, the A-list star brought together his faith and the magic of Disney.

Watch below as the joyful actor reads the story of Christ’s birth from the book of Luke in between songs and other breaks.

“Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.”

It’s amazing to see the story of Christ’s birth being openly shared at a commercial theme park with so many children and their loving families in attendance. Solidifying Disney as a unique and special place.

Chris Pratt Shares His Personal Testimony

The entire event ran about an hour. Perhaps the best part of this event came when Pratt explained what the story of Christ’s birth meant to him as a father.

Pratt offered a prayer:

Heavenly peace: This is a blessing for which we deeply yearn. It moves us to welcome this season with renewed sense of kindness and compassion to others. We gather at celebrations. We create memories with families and friends. We go home. The coming of the holidays brings the promise of faith, of hope and of love. And as the Bible says, “The greatest of these is love. Love bares all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends” …     

It’s been a very special and inspiring night. For me, being a parent has really changed my life in so many ways. And one of those ways is to understand, truly, the love that a father could have for a child …

The way we love our children, the more we love our children, the more we will understand the capacity for our Father in Heaven to love us. Each and every one of us a precious creation, and He just marvels in the ways that we can try to please Him. That should give us a great deal of comfort. I know it does for me. (51:04)

It was truly remarkable to all who attended, a beautiful event that could only be made more perfect with a truly inspiring message from the bible.

This isn’t the first time Chris Pratt has been open about his Christian faith, a rarity in Hollywood these days.

When considering an industry like entertainment that is so often antagonistic toward Christians, it’s comforting to know that good guys like Chris Pratt are out there, too.
