Feeling exhausted this week by what’s going on in the news or even in your own life? Denzel Washington, Oscar-winning actor and public figure, is praying for you to take heed and know that God is with you.
In an interview with the Christian Post, Washington urged younger generations to put differences aside and come together for what is good and just. “Find a way to work together because this is a very divisive, angry time you're living in,” he says.
The 62-year-old star, known for his iconic lead role in Malcolm X, reflected on how inspiring it was to see young people stand up for change and justice then and even now. While preparing for his next film, Roman J. Israel, Esq. Washington said he prays “that young people never lose that fire.”
Washington is not afraid to share where his faith stands. And in the same light, he encourages those who are listening, to also “be unafraid and unashamed to share it.”
