Mark Wahlberg And Mario Lopez Build ‘Spiritual Muscles’ Through Prayer

Two very recognizable people mentioned how much prayer means to them in a video posted to social media.

Hollywood is not a place or an industry where people often discuss religion or share their faith in Jesus Christ. Instead, normally those in the spotlight – actors, actresses and singers – avoid the topics of religion, faith and Jesus Christ altogether. 

However, Hollywood actor and A-lister Mark Wahlberg has never been a person to shy away from his faith. He has continually made comments about how big a role faith plays in his life and how he spends time each day in prayer.

In a video posted on Mark’s Instagram page, the “Transformers” star is joined by fellow actor, Mario Lopez. In the short clip, Mark and Mario walk in the frame and stand in front of a giant and beautifully decorated cross.

Mark says that he and Mario, “his brother in Christ” and “brother in life,” are about to go to church so that they can stay “prayed up.” Later, Mario says they’ve “got to build the spiritual muscles.”

The video, which is only a few seconds long, ends with Mark looking at the camera and informing his followers to “stay prayed up.” He also adds, “God bless you,” as they both walk out of the frame. 

So far, the video, which was posted on April 23, has been liked more than 600,000 times. 

It is refreshing to see someone who is so visible and recognizable as Mark Wahlberg, who has been nominated for two Academy Awards, be so open and honest about his faith. 

Despite many in his industry doing otherwise, Mark has always taken the other route. He routinely shares his belief in God and in the power of prayer during interviews. 

Philippians 4:6 “In nothing be anxious, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
