A Prayer for God's Vision

Many times in our lives we can experience a crisis of confusion due to a lack of God’s vision in our lives, or a lack of understanding regarding that vision. Daniel was a man in the Bible whom God had given the ability to see and interpret visions.

In the Second Chapter of Daniel, the Bible tells us about King Nebuchadnezzar who had dreams that troubled him, causing him not to sleep. The king sought the counsel of his magicians, counselors, sorcerers and astrologers, asking them to tell him what he dreamed, and then to tell him what the dream meant.

The magicians, counselors, sorcerers and astrologers responded by telling the king that no one on earth could do what the king asked. This angered King Nebuchadnezzar, and he ordered the execution of all the wise men of Babylon. Daniel and his friends happened to fall into that category.

When Arioch, the commander of the king’s guard came to Daniel, the Bible says that Daniel spoke to him with wisdom and tact, saying, “Why did the king issue such a harsh decree?” (Daniel 2:15) Arioch explained the matter to Daniel, and Daniel went directly to the king, asking for more time.

Daniel and his friends pleaded with God for mercy that they might be spared from the king’s wrath. That night, the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Daniel praised God for the vision, and the light that His wisdom brings!

God’s vision is divine. It brings light into the darkness and casts out all confusion. We can pray, as Daniel did, for God’s divine presence to bring His vision into our lives.

Dear Father in Heaven,

We thank You and praise You for teaching us in and through the mysteries of life.

We ask that You would bestow Your mercy on us, Lord, and reveal Your will in this period of crisis and confusion.

Come swiftly, Everlasting Father, and grant us Your vision to eliminate any and all confusion from our lives. Give us Your eyes to see. Give us Your vision, Heavenly Father.

Father, in Your mercy, may You also provide us the interpretation of Your most holy vision. Paint a picture in our mind’s eye of Your plan and purpose for this situation, and for our lives, Father.

In all these requests, we ask humbly for Your mercy and grace, Father, that Your will may be accomplished.

For Yours is the kingdom and the glory forever, and it is in Your most holy name we pray.
