As I was joining the ministry, one of my goals was to start communicating with God through dreams, and I had to use the Bible to get there.
With the guidance of experienced members of the ministry, I learned what Psalms to read for dreams and visions. So, last week, one student asked me to give them a list of Psalms verses they can read to dream and have visions.
With my knowledge and experience, it was easy to answer, and I decided to write this article for everyone else in need.
6 Psalms to read for dreams and visions
“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”
In this verse, David talks about God being his shepherd who refreshes his soul and guides him, and he will not fear because God walks with him.
You can read this verse for dreams and visions because it helps you ask God to guide you, be with you in the darkness, and guide you.
“When I called, you answered me; you greatly emboldened me.”

How to use these Psalms to interpret dreams and visions
Although there is no specific and different way to interpret dreams using psalms, different believers suggest offering a format of interpreting dreams biblically.
First, it is suggested that you identify the dreamer. Next, you need to determine who was in the dream, what objects and activities took place, and in what places.
Also, after this, it’s advised that you should determine the relationship of the imagery to the dreamer. Next, it is believed that you have to determine if the meaning is direct or if you need to pray to get the meaning.
