Bad dreams are real, yet the bible is replete with prayer against bad dreams that can help you cancel out the effect of those dreams.
So if you are looking for prayer against bad dreams of any kind, this post is for you.
Bad dreams are pointers to something bad happening to you now or that something evil is going to happen to you.
Let me say this: if you don’t dream, you are in trouble; this is because dream(s) is one of the ways God speaks and reveals things to His Children in these last days (See Acts 2:16-18).
A Little About Dreams
Of course is that dreams come to us from multitude of business (Ecclesiastes 5:3) but more than that, dreams are given us by the Spirit of God as glimpses into the realm of the unseen. (Job 33: 14-17)
Through dreams, you have insights into your past, your present and your future.
So when you have a bad dream, that could be God’s way of showing you what Satan and his hosts of evil spirits are doing behind the scene (in the realm of the spirit) against you.
But the joy of knowing what Satan is planning or doing against you right now is that you are able to pray against those evil schemes revealed in the dream and cancel or stop them in the name of the Lord.
So, God reveals to redeem.
You have the advantage because God has made adequate provision in His word – with warranty that you can do something about those dreams.
That said; let’s now look at prayer against bad dreams gleaned from several bible verses.
