"Here's what I was listening to on my run portion Bible in a Year Podcast," Pratt posted to his 45.8 million followers via his Instagram story. "Have loved using the Hallow App! What a great job, Mark Wahlberg!" Pratt mentioned that he likely won't complete the podcast in a year but more like a year and a half. "It'll probably be more like Bible in a year and a half, but I'm doing my best," he wrote. The podcast has 365 episodes and walks listeners through the entire Bible.
"Using an exclusive reading plan rooted in The Bible Timeline (a ground-breaking approach to understanding salvation history developed by Biblical scholar Jeff Cavins) you won't just read the Bible … you'll finally understand how all the pieces fit together to tell an amazing story that continues in your life today!" the podcast's website explains.
Pratt has been listening to the podcast on the Hallow app, which Mark Wahlberg has repeatedly promoted in recent years. The app, launched by Alex Jones, Alessandro DiSanto, and Erich Kerekes in 2018, has seen hundreds of millions of prayers completed as millions of users sign on daily. Wahlberg spoke about his faith early last year when he described his desire to be "closer to God" and promoted the Hallow app.
"It's the largest Christian app in the world. It was number three on Apple's free apps, ahead of Google TikTok and all of these things, Spotify, and Netflix. I mean, people are thirsty for spiritual connection," the Hollywood actor said about the app's success, as previously reported by the DC Enquirer. "They're thirsty and hungry for comfort, guidance, and also companionship with one another. So it's been amazing. You can tell people are really hungry, and they need spirituality in their lives. You can't really have spirituality without religion, even though it's been separated. You know, we all know that it all goes hand-in-hand. We all need to encourage and support each other."
According to the app's description, the "Catholic prayer app offers audio-guided meditation sessions to help us grow in our faith & spiritual lives and find peace in God. Explore over 6,000 different sessions on contemplative prayer, meditation, Catholic Bible readings, music, and more. In today's world, we're stressed, anxious, distracted, & can't sleep. At the same time, we're searching for deeper meaning, purpose, & relationships. We believe these two challenges can be addressed with the same solution: peace in Jesus. In the end, after all, a halo in heaven is the goal."
