There is no escaping the imprint of a waking dream on your day. A waking dream occurs just as your day is beginning and is your first impression of it, generally leaving you with the urge to take action. God’s purpose for a waking dream is to show you something that stays with you and is not forgotten when you get up. We all know it is possible to dream in the night and not remember it, but it is next to impossible to forget a waking dream. You cannot shake the feeling that it is an immediate assignment to pray.
"Then Pharaoh woke up; it had been a dream. In the morning his mind was troubled..." - Genesis 41:7 - 8 (NKJV)
