Throughout the Bible, we see evidence of God speaking to us via dreams whenever He desires to send a message. For example, in Jeremiah, our Heavenly Father speaks to us about the plans He has for us (Jeremiah 29:11).
Jeremiah 29:11 For 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.
Now, here is the knowledge that is lacking. Just as we pray against bad dreams, it is equally important to pray for pleasant dreams to manifest. Many times, we fail to pray for those beautiful dreams until they come to pass.
And never forget that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 9:10). It is the will of God for us to be happy and victorious in Christ, our Lord, our Saviour.
When we pray
There are a few points to consider before you set yourself to pray. They will help to bring encouragement and put you in the right posture inwardly in preparation for prayer.
- A way when there seems to be no way – At times, we may get discouraged, not knowing how or if things will work out for us, forgetting His promises (Isaiah 43:16-19).
- God can revive dreams – In Genesis chapters 37 to 40, we see Joseph having dreams, and they actually came to pass.
- Dreams give directions/instructions – In Matthew 2:13, we see Joseph receiving a dream that gave him instructions to flee because of impending danger.
- Dreams are a promise for the times that we are in – God promises to pour out His Spirit on His people, some will prophesy, some will have visions and others will have dreams (Acts 2:17).
Matthew 2:13 Now when they had gone, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up! Take the Child and His mother and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is going to search for the Child to destroy Him.”
Acts 2:17 “‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.
Prayer to revive my dreams
My God, My Lord and personal Saviour, thank You for the way You father me.
Thank You for giving us Your Only Son, Jesus Christ and thank You for the forgiveness of my sins.
Thank You, Heavenly Father, for the person I have become. I used to be many things that were not pleasing in Your eyes. But now I have made you my God and my only reliable strong tower. Therefore, I can proudly boast, in Your wonderful, victorious and everlasting name, that I am a child of God.
Daniel 2:19 Then the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven;
A way when there seems to be no way
It is written, according to 1 John 1:8, “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.” Please forgive me wherever I have fallen short and did things that are displeasing in your sight.
Heavenly Father, You made a way where there seemed to be no way in so many circumstances in my life. And Your right hand still continues to reach out to me. And for that, I am eternally grateful.
Because of Your mercy and grace, I have become blameless and shameless, as I testify every day that there is indeed no condemnation for those in Christ.
I am now determined to please You in every situation I go through. Lord, I know it’s not by power nor by might, but by Your Spirit, Lord Jesus.
I remember the dreams that You had given me in times past. Therefore, Lord, I pray, just as You kept Joseph’s dream alive, that the same would be my portion. May the dreams that You’ve deposited into my Spirit continue to be revived until the time of their fulfillment.
May You begin to commission my partners and destiny helpers at Your perfect timing in Christ, in order to realize every dream bestowed upon my life.
(Mention specific dreams that has been bestowed upon your life and ask God to revive them).
Revive the dreams of others
There is a purpose that I am here, Lord. As I humbly come before Your throne, it is my greatest desire that You revive the dreams of every woman and man reading this prayer. May they start seeing the gifts that You have bestowed upon their lives.
I pray that the lies of the enemy will not prevail against them. Let Your will be done. May their thoughts be heavenly vindicated by the fire of Your purpose.
Father God, there is nothing hidden you cannot reveal. So, reveal and revive, Father God.
Destroy the seeds of the enemy
Destroy every seed that the enemy is using to hide and create fear for these great women and men to fully acknowledge You as their Lord and personal Saviour.
Remove the lies the enemy has been feeding them for such a long time. They have started believing his lies and are losing hope and touch of the reality of Your true and pure love.
May ALL lies, such as discouragement, addiction, suicidal thoughts, unforgiveness, stagnation, limitation, failure, disappointment, unbelief, and other contrary spirits, be arrested, uprooted, bound and destroyed forever, Father God in Jesus’ mighty name. We dedicate all these requests upon Your holy altar.
We thank You for You are our great help in times of distress. Thank You for the strength You give us to seek Your presence day and night.
We thank You for the administration of angels in our homes, schools, workplaces and wherever we are. Because You are our mighty protector and warrior in battle.
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit we pray. Amen
Job 33:14-18 For God does speak – now one way, now another – though no one perceives it.
In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds, he may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings, to turn them from wrongdoing and keep them from pride, to preserve them from the pit, their lives from perishing by the sword
I am a a 35 year old mother of two beautiful girls. A daughter of a King who’s only wish is to serve and please God.
I enjoy a lot of worship and praise and can’t imagine my life without His mercy. The word is the foundation of my faith. Greater is He that is in me than the one in the world. 1John 4:4.
