spiritual meaning of prisoner dreams

Prisoner Dream Meaning

Dream About Prisoner


Romans 5:18 says, “Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.” Jesus wasn’t only delivered on account of our sins, He was also raised for our justification (Romans 4:25).


Dreams about prisoners can have different meanings. They can indicate feelings of imprisonment, oppression and a lack of freedom in life. It can also mean that you are trapped in a situation that you cannot get out of.


Rescuing a prisoner in your dream can mean that you have found a way out of a difficult one escape from the situation or that you have freed some aspect of your life that was holding you back.


However, seeing yourself as a prisoner in dreams can mean that you feel trapped and that you can’t go any further to achieve your destiny. It is also important to pay attention to the type of prisoner you see in the dream. For example, if it is a criminal, it can mean that you are afraid of consequences or that you feel guilty.


Seeing a prisoner in a dream can also indicate your attitude towards authority and reflect punishment. You may feel insecure or scared when confronted with an authority figure or punishment.

If you dream about a prisoner you should ask yourself: How did you felt in your dream? What kind of prisoner did you see? Did you free the prisoner or not? What are your thoughts after waking up through the mind?


Dreaming of seeing prisoners may represent your feelings of being trapped or confined in some aspect of your waking life. You may feel restricted in some way, whether be it in your personal relationships, work, or other areas of life.


The prisoners in your dream may also symbolize aspects of yourself that you feel are imprisoned or held back, such as your own thoughts, emotions, or desires. Alternatively, seeing prisoners in your dream may be telling you to be careful in life.  You may be trying to do something that you are about to regret or currently regretting.


If you dream about a prisoner, it could mean that someone you know is currently in bondage or in problems. It could also be a warning of a big case coming to mess up. Dreaming about a prisoner can also indicate that something in your life is under the grip of the enemy.


Therefore, you need to pray to loose yourself from the captivity.  The prisoner in your dream could also represent a false accusation or a warning to beware of false friends. The reason you are battling with a challenge is because someone is behind it.


If you are dreaming of a prisoner, it could also mean that your road is blocked and there is no alternative for your escape. If you are seen in the prison, it may also be a sign of being in a wrong location.


A wrong location that delay a person’s destiny. If this is true, then you need to plan how to move out of your present house. If you sense something bad is coming after your dream of seeing the prisoners, then you have to pray against it.


Many people are in prison for the crime they did not commit though lies and set up.  If you know that you have done something wrong, then this dream is more likely a warning to repent from your sin or otherwise you may face the punishment for your decisions or actions, be careful of what you say or do. Somebody is watching you.


Dream of seeing the prisoners or being in the prison can also symbolize abandonment, failure, shame, evil thoughts, condemnation, fear, insecurity, untimely death, limitation, ignorance and so on. In dreams, many of those that found themselves in the prison have actually seen the manifestation of the dream pushing them to physical prison due to their negligence.


Being in the prison does not also mean that you are going to end up your life in the prison, but the dream is a way to prepare you for a tough battle that you must fight.


Positive Interpretation: A prisoner dream could also mean that you are able to cope with your problems and free yourself from limiting factors. You may have the ability to overcome challenges and achieve your goals. Perhaps you feel stuck in a situation, a relationship, or a job, and you long to break free.


Alternatively, if you were visiting someone who was a prisoner, it could signify your desire to reach out to someone who needs your help or support. You may be feeling empathetic towards someone who is going through a difficult time and want to offer them comfort.


If the prisoner in your dream was yourself, it may be a reflection of guilt, shame, or a sense of moral responsibility for something you have done. It could also represent a fear of being punished or losing your freedom in some way.


In general, dreaming of a prisoner may be a reminder to examine your own personal freedom and to identify any areas in your life where you may feel confined or restricted.  May God intervene you in your case and be your voice where you have no voice. May He save and protect you from your enemies.

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
