Dreams about praying or actual praying aloud during sleep are deeply connected with your conscience and intuition.
Dreams related to praying usually have to do with your desires, aims, fantasies and plans, but also with the sense of guilt, a need for repentance and feelings of being helpless and weak in a way.
Prayer is something that has been important to people since the dawn of civilization.
Prayers make us feel connected with unreachable realms of forces that are beyond our imagination. The very concept of prayer exists in different cultural systems and systems of belief. Speaking about the act of praying, we usually first think of prayers in monotheistic terms (such as in Christianity, Islam and Judaism).
However, praying has been an important practice in worshiping pagan deities and other in other types of spiritual worship of entities beyond our reach. Prayer is what makes people feel guided and protected; prayers give us strength to move forward.
Many people would say prayers are what have helped them go through the most difficult times in their lives.
The power of faith is incredible. We have to believe in something in order to feel alive, in a way.
Without having faith, not necessarily the faith in God, but any form of spiritual or abstract belief, people feel like an empty shell. Faith is the food for our souls. The act of praying is a powerful channel of maintaining our faith.
Praying in dreams
Having in mind the act of praying plays an important role in our daily lives, you certainly imagine how interesting and rich the motif of praying could be if occurs in dreams. If you had a dream about praying, it means you have many things on your mind.
Those could be ideas related to your religious beliefs, in the first place. Maybe you are losing faith or you are disappointed by how religious ideas you believed in so far were displayed.
Perhaps you feel as if the higher concept you have been praying to in your waking life has not responded to your call; it could make you feel disappointed, angry or scared.
You are still trying to make it hear you, because you do not see other exit from an uncomfortable situation you have found yourself into. On the other hand, your faith may be strong, so strong that it affects your dreams.
If you have a deep and unfulfilled desire, it is common to dream about praying or that you actually pray aloud in sleep.
If you are afraid of something or you are facing troubles, problems and challenges you feel as if you will not be capable of overcoming, seeking help from the above is quite common. You wish to be given a direction and a sign either in reality or in your dreams.
Dreams about praying are fairly similar in meaning, but there are variations in interpretations, depending on particular dream you had.
For example, you could dream about praying at home, in church or someone has said you were saying prayers while you were sleeping. Dreams about a monk or a priest are closely related to interpretations of dreams about prayers and the act of praying.
Praying aloud while sleeping
If somebody tells you you have been praying aloud while you were asleep, the meaning is generally the same as if you had a dream in which you were praying.
The difficulty is that you do not remember what you were saying or to whom did you pray. If the other person has clearly heard your words, he or she could help you understand the meaning of your prayers.
