The "Walker Texas Ranger" star also recounted his mother's difficult early life – and her incredible, unshakable faith. 

"Mom has been an example of perseverance and faith her whole life," he wrote in a WND piece. She is the last survivor of her 11-member biological family. She's also endured the deaths of her two husbands, a stepson, two grandchildren and my younger brother Wieland in the Vietnam War. She's had cancer repeatedly and has gone through roughly 30 different surgeries for a host of issues – and yet she's still here to tell about it. "

But that's not all. Norris noted that his mother has always asked God to guide her famous son, especially as he was "nearly losing" his soul in Hollywood.

"My mother has prayed for me all my life, through thick and thin. When I was born, I almost died from complications. When nearly losing my soul to Hollywood a few decades ago, she was back home praying for my success and salvation," he wrote. "She even prayed for me to find a woman to change my life, and it worked."

Norris' comments about his mother's life clearly offer an important message about the power of prayer!
