Ananias – a story from the early church.

The story of a man's sight restored and a life changed

How would you feel if you were asked to pray for someone?

How would you feel if that man was someone you feared, someone who had been responsible for the death of some of your friends?

That is exactly what happened to Ananias when he was asked to go and pray for Saul, a pharisee responsible for the deaths of many Christians.

Discover in this film what happened when Ananias and Saul met.

For the full biblical account of the story read Acts:9
