Dream Of Praying In Tongues
Dreams of speaking in tongues are mostly reported among Christians. I've not been opportuned to hear a non-Christian say that they spoke in tongues in their dream before (although this is still a possibility).
Two major categories of Christians often dream about speaking in tongues:
- Those who already have the gift of tongues and can use it while awake.
- Those who do not have the gift of tongues or cannot speak in tongues while awake.
For the second category of Christians, speaking in tongues in a dream may come as a surprise. But if you have been asking God for the gift of tongues, it is not strange to begin finding yourself speaking in tongues in your dreams.
In some cases where a Christian asked God for the gift of tongues, the manifestation of this gift may begin in the spiritual, and eventually show up in dreams. It doesn't always show up instantly in the physical.
The one who asked for the gift of speaking in tongues may begin to find their self speaking in tongues in their dream. Do not see it as strange, instead, ask God to make it manifest also in the physical realm.
What Does Speaking In Tongues In Your Dream Mean?
Dreams generally fall under three categories:
- Dreams from God (prophetic dreams)
- Dreams from the human mind
- Dreams from the enemy
Dream of speaking in tongues are often very prophetic dreams. In other words, they are often Godly or from God.
If you happen to find yourself speaking in tongues in your dreams, please pay attention to that dream because it comes with hidden details. There is something very important God is trying to make you understand or communicate to you through such dreams. Do not discard them as just 'mere dreams'.
What Does It Mean When You Dream About Someone Speaking In Tongues
If you saw someone you know speaking in tongues in the dream, such a dream is often a revelation from God, letting you know:
- That person is filled with the Holy Spirit and aiming higher in his/her relationship with God or spiritual growth.
- That individual is a powerful Christian with a vibrant prayer life.
- That individual is currently undergoing intense spiritual transformation in the hand of God.

Spiritual Meaning Of Speaking In Tongues In Dream
Apparently, there is always a deep spiritual symbolism behind every dream of speaking in tongues. Let's take a look at more of them below:
1. Evidence Of Being Filled With The Holy Spirit
In most cases, speaking in tongues in dreams is often a sign that the dreamer is filled with the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:4 KJVAnd they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Speaking in tongues is for spiritual people! When a person is at their very best spiritually, many prophetic dreams will be shown to them, and such may include dreams of speaking in tongues.
2. Receiving The Gift Of Tongues
There are instances where certain Christians find themselves speaking in tongues in their dream, yet they are unable to do same while awake. Most of them end up concluding that they do not have the gift of tongues. But this isn't always the case.
Sometimes, speaking in tongues in dreams can be God's way of confirming to such individuals that they truly have the gift of tongues. They just have to go ahead and use it while awake, and then grow into and mature in it.
Another point to note is that, God often gives people spiritual gifts in their dreams. There are many who have reportedly been baptised in and filled with the Holy Spirit in their dreams.
For someone who has been asking for the gift of tongues, seeing yourself speaking in tongues in your dream for the first time could mean that you have received the gift you've been asking God for.
3. Communication With God
The spirit of a man who has been aligned with God longs for constant communion with God. The Holy Spirit dwells in him, and if such a man is too busy for God while he is awake, his spirit may only be chanced to find expression with God while he is asleep. This could manifest as a dream of speaking in tongues.
