Does God Speak Through Dreams?
The Bible is filled with multiple examples of God speaking through the dreams of people. Joseph in Genesis received significant visions from God through his own dreams, and was instrumental in interpreting the dreams of others. Joseph in the gospels received valuable direction from God during a critical moment in the early life of Jesus, prompting him to leave for Egypt with his family to protect his child. The prophet Joel declares a time when old men will see visions, and young men will dream dreams, a prophecy that was echoed in the New Testament by Peter in the book of Acts.
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done, on earth as in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
