August Practical Prayer Assignment: Crushing Stubborn Nightmares

 Crushing Stubborn Nightmares (Dreams) Through Prayers

Genesis 41:25-27 
And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do. The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is one. And the seven thin and ill favoured kine that came up after them are seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind shall be seven years of famine.

A nightmare or bad dream cause us to wake up with feelings of fear and anxiety. While nightmares can be very scary to experience, they are often influenced by demons to attack their candidates. In the month of August, we are crushing stubborn nightmares through prayers that works. It is surprising to know how many people are gradually been defeated by stubborn bad dreams.

This is not just an attack done occasionally, it is now a common theme. If you are having nightmares that makes you fear, or unsafe, it’s important to know what dream is all about. It is true that understanding the meaning of your dreams can help you feel less afraid.

The word of God and prayers are the weapons with which you can fight all stubborn evil dreams. That’s why it is always advisable to rebuke any kind of nightmares you had immediately you woke up from sleep.


Some nightmares are just like a chronic sickness in the body. If you don’t use the right medication been prescribed by a doctor, such an illness will become inevitable. This is also true in the place of nightmares.

If you don’t use the right prayers to crush them now, it will continue to torment you. I pray for you, in the name of Jesus, every stubborn nightmares holding your virtues shall release them and die.

As a Christian reading me now, there is no point of you getting tired of praying against any kind of evil dreams. The life of a Christian is a life of battle. But there is a period of victory and rest for every child of God.

Before you can get to that stage, you must be fervent in prayer warfare. It is your duty as a Christian to make sure you have victory over stubborn dreams. If you are not a prayer person, you cannot be liberated from the plague of nightmares.

There is a mystery behind dreams. Since it is a gift given to us by God, even young people can dream. Joseph’s dream came to him when he was a youth. One of the advantages of dreams is that when you learn how to decode tough dreams early, you will grow up to become an untouchable creature whose Satan cannot get away with. Do you know that a person that understands his dreams he is at the best position to use the dream meaning to fight against his enemies.

There are some Christians who really want to come out from a particular dream that surrounds them. A dream that has shattered their life and destiny to pieces. A particular dream that has stolen their will power, prosperity, fruitfulness, blessings. A dream that has denied of their marital place. But we discover that  the yoke of sin has actually made their prayers and deliverance null and void.

The Almighty God knows that everyone has weaknesses but the trouble is that one single weakness can be responsible for your problems. A sin in a person’s life will make his dreams persist and his efforts towards deliverance a wasted effort.

So if you take time to eliminate the sin completely, it will give you the power to move forward. When you feel like prayers and fasting have all failed woefully on your part, you cannot do it alone, but with the help of a man of God.

Example of Stubborn Dreams (Nightmares)

Many of the stubborn nightmares ever troubled man today are eating in the dream, having sex in the dream, being chased in the dream, engaging in a wedding in a dream, death in the dream, village dream, swimming in or walking on water, picking things on the ground, bleeding in the dream, police arrest dream, been pursued by masquerade, buying or selling things in the dream, seeing red objects in the dream, falling inside a hole or pit etc.

The above dreams are stubborn nightmares and they can be very hard to overcome through some prayers. Most believers find themselves battling some of these dreams for years. The strongman that distributes nightmares in their family are using this type of dreams to tie them down in one spot. They also use this dream to block the source of their joy.

However, you may want to ask: Why are they attacking me with nightmares? What have I ever done to warrant them putting me in bondage for long? This same questions you are asking millions are asking same questions. But the good news is in Philippians 2:10-11, That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

EATING IN THE DREAM as a case study

For example, the dream about eating, it is therefore telling you to deal with your foundation. It can also remind you of being arrested in the custody of marine witchcraft. This is a situation where light disappears, joy is deleted from your spirit, the present of embargo and stagnancy.

Take for instance, if you are a jobless person, if see yourself eating in the dream, it symbolizes you are operating on a curse. Perhaps you got the job and you discover you are being bullied, or feeling rejected. These are some of the symbols of a person being manipulated and controlled by demonic forces. A person who eats often in the dream cannot have power, authority and freedom.

If you come from a family with lots of negative symptoms, you may not escape their demonic collective captivity. This makes your dream of eating any kind of foods harmful to your life and destiny. Spiritually sensitive people understand the spiritual and physical effects of eating in the dream. That’s the reason they don’t take their dreams for granted.

When you eat in the dream for example, it means there is a battle to fight and there is a food you should stop eating.  Spiritual dullness, loss of anointing, procrastination, laziness etc are other symptoms of eating in the dream. A number of people eats in their dreams and their lives have never remain the same again. From failure to backwardness, from stagnation to sickness etc.

One mystery about eating in the dream is that the devil can use it to shorten a person’s life span.  The negative feeling you are getting through this dream is enough for you to cancel it with the blood of Jesus. If you can wake up regularly to cover your dream life  with the Blood of Jesus Christ, without doubt or fear in your spirit, you will surely overcome your present situations.

What causes stubborn nightmares?

Based on my years in dream interpretation, these are some of the followings I strongly believe might be the strong causes of a person having constant nightmares. These includes:

  • Your foundation. If the foundation be destroyed, what can the righteous do is the real cause. A person who comes from a bad family pattern, a family programmed with generational curses, there is possibility such person will continue to experience bad dreams. If this attack is not controlled, it will continue to trouble you spiritually and hinder you.
  • Your sin. No sinner can inherit the kingdom of God. Maybe your sin is lying, anger, adultery, fornicator, envy etc, then you will surely be visited by demon of bad dreams. Until you repent from sin, the nightmares will be one factors causing failures in your life.
  • Your house. If the owner of the rented house where you are staying is diabolical, there is no way good dreams will be more prevalent than nightmares, no. Instead bad spirit will saturate the foundation of the house to perpetrate and manipulate the glory of tenants. So, if you discover people are poor, suffering or there are more bad news, then you are living in a strange house. It is now time to take the sand and tell God to hide you and your family from the diabolical power of your landlord. This is very important to your destiny.
