God has a purpose with our dreams – that of intimacy and an invitation to draw closer to Him. Our dreams can be likened to a treasure hunt of searching out what God is trying to communicate to us through the third of our life we are asleep. This episode of ‘Hearing God through our Dreams’ is part 2 in a 3-part series on dreams and their interpretations and covers the types and purposes of dreams. Join Gary & Jane as they share numerous Biblical examples of different types of dreams as well as a number of dreams with the outworking that has influenced and changed the world.

Turn your heart and thoughts to Father God and ask Him:
- Father God, is there a strategy that you would love to download to me now about an issue in my life?
