Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg is urging his fans to keep praying despite this generation’s hostility toward faith in God increasing.
Star of the new film “Father Stu,” Mark Wahlberg is urging his fans to “stay prayed up.” In a recent post on his Instagram, he said that he received a lot of messages from people who have been praying.
“I’ve been getting a lot of messages from people who have been praying every day and finding peace,” he said.
The 50-year-old actor then continued to encourage everyone to keep on praying.
“You got to stay prayed up,” he added. “God bless you.”
In a recent interview with Faithwire, Mark said that he felt God called him to make the movie “Father Stu,” a faith-themed movie.
“There were powers that be at work here and have been since the very beginning, to intercede along the way and make the movie the right way and get the reaction that we’re getting,” Mark explained.
After decades in the entertainment industry, his focus now with his works is not to make money but to make a positive impact on the lives of people.
“If this is a movie that really changes people’s lives and motivates them and inspires them to do great things — you know, all I really gotta do is convert one person, and I get to go through the pearly gates,” he said. “So If I can continue to do that in a major way, remaining humble and just doing it for all the right reasons, then I would much rather have that be my legacy than being the biggest box office star in the world.”
“I would like to have a legacy that I had a positive impact on some people,” he added.
