The conversion of St. Paul from a murderous anti-Jesus militant to loving Apostle is one of the most dramatic stories of conversion in the Bible.  Happily the story has recently been depicted in film in the movie called, Paul, Apostle of Christ.  After Saul was struck blind and seeking help for his conversion, the LORD asked Ananias to help Saul.

In this passage Ananias was speaking to the LORD: Acts of the Apostles 9: 13-16 But Ananias replied, “LORD, I have heard from many sources about this man, what evil things he has done to Your holy ones in Jerusalem. And here he has authority from the chief priests to imprison all who call upon Your Name.” But the LORD said to him, “Go, for this man is a chosen instrument of Mine to carry My Name before Gentiles, kings, and Israelites, and I will show him what he will have to suffer for My Name.

Acts of the Apostles 9: 21 All who heard him (Saul) were astounded and said, “Is not this the man who in Jerusalem ravaged those who call upon this Name, and came here expressly to take them back in chains to the chief priests?”

Acts of the Apostles 9: 27-28 Then Barnabas took charge of him (Saul) and brought him to the Apostles, and he (Saul) reported to them how on the way he had seen the LORD and that He had spoken to him, and how in Damascus he had spoken out boldly in the Name of Jesus. He moved about freely with them in Jerusalem, and spoke out boldly in the Name of the LORD.
