Germany: Bringing the story of Jesus to life
For 15 actors in three different cities across Germany, it’s going to be a busy week. They’ll be spending spare moments memorising the order of events in Mark’s Gospel ahead of next week’s performances. They’re not professionals; they’re just ordinary students acting out an extraordinary drama.
The students will act out the whole Gospel of Mark, without costumes or props, in 90 minutes. Witnessing Jesus’ miracles and teaching bring the history to life in a powerful way, for both the actors and the audience. Hearing the crowds crying out “Crucify him!” is often a ‘lightbulb moment’, as people realise they too have rejected Jesus.
Please join us in praying for the performances in Nuremberg, Schwäbisch, Gmünd and Osnabrück.
Pray for the actors as they rehearse and perform next week. Pray that the account of Jesus’ life and death would come alive for them in a fresh way.
Pray for the spiritual impact on the audience. Pray that they would not just watch it as a piece of art, but that they’d really engage with it and be challenged on a personal level.
Pray that many would be keen to read the Bible for themselves as a result.
Thanks for praying with us!
