Searching for God’s Will

Theme: God’s Will is not always the unfathomable mystery Christians often seem to make it.

Length: 1.5 – 2 minutes

Characters: Searcher, Voice of God

Scene/Props: No particular scene or props are needed although if possible, use a darkened room with a spotlight for effect.

Synopsis: A Searcher in a solitary moment genuinely seeks God’s Will in a prayer that is spoken aloud. God replies, but the Searcher is completely oblivious to His responses.

Excerpt:

(The Searcher paces the stage and seems genuinely sincere and yet completely unaware of God’s responses. The Voice of God is from off stage.)

Searcher: I wish I could know God’s will for my life. What am I to do? What am I to become?

God: I’d like to see you become more like me.

Searcher: There are so many questions. Who should I marry? What career path should I follow?

God: If you’ll take up your cross and follow me, everything else will fall into place.

Searcher: Where do I begin to find answers?

God: Begin with the Bible. That’s what it’s for.

Searcher: My quiet time doesn’t seem to be what it ought to be.

God: I’ll say!

Searcher: I don’t feel like I’m getting anything out of it.

God: I don’t feel like you’re putting anything into it.
