In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.&quot; &quot;Lord,&quot; Ananias answered, &quot;I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your saints in Jerusalem. And he has come here with authority from the chief priests to arrest all who call on your name.&quot; But the Lord said to Ananias, &quot;Go!
