LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Pratt often posts inspirational, beautiful and thankful messages to his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

As wonderful as the messages can be, Pratt certainly doesn't shy away from awesome comebacks, silly posts and nearly anything concerning his wife Anna Faris.

More recently, Pray took to his Instagram to post a pictures of a beautiful hand-burned "pocket dump tray" his brother made him.

Along with an image of the tray, which depicts Christ with a crown of thorns and Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me," he wrote:

"So my brother, @cullypratt makes these awesome pocket dump trays. We all need a place to throw out wallets, keys, cell-phones, lighters, pistols or whatever else we keep in your pocket so you know exactly where it is the next day.

"Well he wanted to make me one and asked me what I wanted on it. I went for the usual Chris answer, American bald eagle smoking a cigar, holding a machine gun and an American flag whirling all bad *** in the wind maybe with some nunchucks or something.

"But then I thought a lot about being homesick. I'd like having a touchstone that I could take with me as I travel on the road for work. Something less straight up bad *** hero and more homesick in need of comfort.

"So I thought about this great bible verse Philippians 4:13 which I've relied on for strength from time to time. And he knocks this thing out in like a day!!

"Reclaimed wood and a wood burner. All by hand. He does all kinds of awesome art stuff and [I'm] proud of him. He's so awesome and you should follow him.

"He's a unique individual and my best friend. An army veteran and a sheriffs deputy who has seen a lot of **** in his life but gets up everyday to go to work and help people having bad days cause he's a real hero.

"A hero who loves to make something out of nothing with his bare hands. He's very good and when we were kids he used to make me smell his finger and I always fell for it and I wore his clothes and worshiped him and still do to this day.

"Thanks to my big brother from the same mother for my awesome #cullypepper dump tray. It's my favorite thing I have."

The bond between Pratt and his brother is obvious and the simple gift can now follow him wherever he goes.

The image was posted two days ago but was met with nearly 300,000 likes and thousands of positive comments - many of which touched on his humble spirit and thankfulness for family.

God bless, Christ Pratt.
