Powerful Prayer Against Nightmares And Bad Dreams

PATREON SUPPORTERS Log-in here to remove ads Login with Patreon


It is surely a beautiful gift to dream, especially when the dreams are filled with beautiful embraces and the presence of our Lord Jesus. And especially when they are filled with hope, guidance through difficult situations or simply embracing our maker through worship and praise. What a wonderful experience!

But it can also become tiring, and absolutely confusing, when dreams become a battleground of terror, when they turn into nightmares.

It is evidently so that our heavenly Father speaks to us via different mediums, especially through our dreams. God has chosen many times to speak to many great men of God in the Bible through their dreams.

But at times, the evil one finds a way to taunt us through our dream with nightmares. It’s his attempt to derail us from our divine God-given destinies, by giving us unbearable, frighteningly bad dreams.

This prayer is for anyone who has been experiencing strange dreams or nightmares. May the Lord God see you through and grant you courage to take your sword and destroy every seed the enemy has planted in Jesus’ name.

Prayer Against Nightmares

My heavenly, wonderful, loving Father, I thank You and I glorify Your Holy name, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

I thank You for the access You have given me to lay all my worries. I can leave them at Your feet, fully trusting and believing that they will come to an end, because “nothing is impossible with God”.

Proverbs 3:24 – When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

Psalm 91:1-2 – Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’

Asking Boldly For God’s Intervention

My Lord, You have taught us to ask in prayer without ceasing for whatever our hearts desires. Therefore, I come before Your throne, to cast my burdens of terrible nightmares that I’ve been experiencing.

Some are repetitive, frightening, threatening. And some dreams would simply keep me up all night. In the morning I’m still left to wonder the meaning of these dreams and in the process my mind gets tired.

I know it’s the devil’s work! So help me Lord in my distress. I humbly ask You to cover me under Your blood.

James 1:6 – But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.

Isaiah 26:3 – You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.

Recognizing And Bringing Forth All My Worries

You are a good, good Father who gives only great gifts. And I know that these terrifying nightmares of being chased, harassed, losing my wallet, going back to my former house or school whereby I would write a test and fail, are all lies from the father of lies.

I know that these awful dreams are the enemy’s tactics that he uses to steal, kill and destroy many people’s divine destinies.

1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Asking For My Turn Around

O Lord Jesus, go ahead of me as I lay me down. May my dreams be filled with divine supernatural messages, and angelic visitations, accompanied with powerful praise and worship.

Even as I dream, send your blessings, accompanied by a great touch and upliftment in my Spirit to seek Your face more and more each day.

I believe that it’s Your will, just as it is written in Jeremiah 29:11 “I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.

You are a God of great signs and wonders. It is my desire to dream about Your will in my life, to dream about supernatural things only You O Lord are able to grant. And grant me the grace to fully understand my dreams.

Silence all my enemies, O Jesus, who chase me and are at great speed to attempt to take my life.

Lord, they are trying to instill a spirit of fear, which I rebuke in the Mighty name of Jesus. Because I rightfully know that God hath not given us the spirit of fear. But of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

By your very powerful word, I believe that I am set apart. And nothing can ever defeat Your mercy and grace.

Psalm 73:26 God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Creasing All Nightmares

Father God in Jesus name, I pray that not only I, but also others experiencing dreadful nightmares, are all covered under the shadow of Your Mighty wings.

That You, O Lord, give us access to Your powerful sword to triumphant over every enemy of our salvation that dares to interrupt our peaceful dreams.

Kings 8:56Blessed be the LORD, who has given rest to His people Israel, according to all that He promised; not one word has failed of all His good promise, which He promised through Moses His servant.

Nightmares Are Over

Your will be done, Jesus. May all that has been causing us to experience nightmares be exposed, bind, arrested. And may it wither with tire as from tonight in Jesus Mighty name as we read the powerful protection prayer in Psalms 91.

Father our trust and hope is only in You to restore our dream life and walk in Your will. I thank You for the answered prayer King of King’s and Lord of Lords.

I thank You that the awful nightmares I’ve been experiencing are over and that Your mercy and wonderful grace shall take me over in Jesus Mighty name I pray and shout out loud Hallelujah. Amen and Amen and Amen.

Psalm 4:8 I will both lie down in peace and sleep. For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

    1. Amen brother,
      Thank you sister for posting this powerful blog. I feel this is helping brother and sister be a unity in defeating the evil one. Also full filling the Lords economy.
      I had a horrible dream a week ago, that lead me to fear going to sleep, and it was very vivid and real. I woke up and something very negative was holding me down and preventing me to talk. Since my mouth was being covered, I was trying to mumble “oh Lord Jesus, Oh Lord Jesus, Oh Lord Jesus!!! And instantly, I was released from the negative energy. The scary thing from that was not being able to speak the Lords name. Now I am always speaking the Lords name when I can. Lord I am grateful to worship you, and cover us all with your blood and supply us all with your strength, courage and endurance to defeat the evil one. We humbly ask You to make us warriors of light and give us a sword that we may fight the wicked.

      And all my sins are forgiven
      Lord Jesus accept me again

      All these I ask in your name in the mighty name of Jesus Christ
      It’s settled

    1. The devil is a liar, he has no place in my house, he has no place in my house and my yard. If he thinks that he will pit the spirit of fear in us, he has another thing coming. We are children of the living God, the Lord that has promised to never leave nor forsake us. The one that has protected Meshach, Abednego and Shadrack. The Lord of our forefather, the one who took out the children of Israel to their promised land.
