A-list actor Chris Pratt invoked the name of God once again during an awards acceptance speech on Sunday night.

What did he say?

During his Teen Choice Awards acceptance speech for Choice Summer Movie Actor, Pratt expressed his love for God. He also advised those in the audience to do the same.

Pratt received the award for his performance in “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” which hit theaters June 22.

“I’m so thrilled to be here; I have not been a teen for quite some time,” Pratt said during the moving speech. “This means a lot to me.”

“I want to thank God. I always do that when I’m up on a big platform in front of a bunch of young faces,” the actor — who is vocal about professing his faith from his very public platform — added.

“I love God," he said. "That’s my thing, I love him! And you should too!”

What else?

This isn't the first time the A-lister has professed his faith loudly and proudly.

In June, Pratt delivered an extremely moving speech about God's love and prayer during the MTV Movie Awards.

During his acceptance speech for the awards ceremony's Generation Award, the star told those in the audience — as well as those tuned in to the live broadcast — that “God is real.”

He went on to offer some of his own personal rules to live by in a faith-filled list.

One such piece of advice was, “You have a soul. Be careful with it.” He later added, “God is real. God loves you, God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do.”

“Learn to pray. It’s easy, and it’s so good for your soul,” Pratt also said, and went on to laud God's perfect design.

“Nobody is perfect. People are gonna tell you you’re perfect just the way you are — you’re not," he said. "You are imperfect. You always will be. But, there is a powerful force that designed you that way. And if you’re willing to accept that, you will have grace. And grace is a gift. And like the freedom that we enjoy in this country that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood, do not forget it. Don’t take it for granted.”
