Chris Pratt’s Proclamation About The ‘Power of Prayer’ After Hollywood Director’s Life-Threatening Heart Attack

Actor Chris Pratt put out a major prayer request on Sunday for a fellow Hollywood actor and director who suffered a major heart attack.

Pratt’s powerful call for prayer came after director Kevin Smith tweeted that he survived a very serious medical emergency — one that doctors said could have claimed his life.

“After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack,” Smith tweeted. “The doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka ‘the Widow-Maker’). If I hadn’t canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would’ve died tonight. But for now, I’m still above ground!”

Pratt responded by re-tweeting Smith and noting that, though the two don’t know one another well, he is praying for Smith. Pratt added that he believes “in the healing power of prayer,” and asked others to join with him.

“Kevin we don’t know each other too good but I have loved you since Clerks and I’m praying my a** off for you cause I believe in the healing power of prayer. Can you please pray with me people!?” Pratt tweeted.

In a separate message, the actor wrote, “Praying for you. I will continue to. You inspired me with Clerks when I was a senior HS.”

Prayers up to Smith for a speedy recovery.
