Seeing The Vision Of A Lion?

It’s been some time since I’ve had a vision whilst praying, usually this comes when I find my quiet place at night, pray for something and then just wait with my head bowed and eyes closed.  As a result the vision is usually in response to the prayer I have made and how I feel.  Sometimes I don’t quite understand what I’ve seen, so I pray on it over the next morning, usually I get some sort of revelation as to what I’ve seen and how it relates to my prayers, usually a vision of hope for the future.

But last night it was a little different, it happened at our Connect Group as we prayed as a group at the end of the meeting, I wasn’t actually praying at the time, I was just there with my eyes closed, hands together, head lowered, listening and agreeing, then I saw it, a lion’s head, but it didn’t go away, it stayed there almost all the way through our group prayers, I didn’t know or understand why.

I must admit I was a little perplexed as to why I was seeing this and as I was still trying to get my head around what I had seen, I didn’t mention it to the group, not out fear of sounding stupid or anything else, but the conversation and the opportunity as the night drew on did not arise.

So I guess I’m putting this out to my Christian followers, I ask if you can shed any light on the vision.

I understand that Jesus is the Lion of Judah and there are numerous other references to lions in the bible, most specifically I guess is Daniel in the lion’s den, but quite what this has to do with me or our group prayers, I’m not sure.

As a group we were praying for health issues for various people, for our younger members going through exams and for our Church, none of these seemed to refer back to any mention of lions in the bible, although I certainly do not purport to know everything about the bible or neither can I state many bible verses at will, my knowledge is growing, but admittedly after only two years as Christian, I’m still scratching the surface.

So if anyone can shed some light on this or point me in the direction of any writings that may help, I would be extremely grateful.

    Personally, I think that the Lion of Judah was with your Connect Group last night (and is always with you whether you are alone or with them). It is the sense that I had upon reading this. Check out Numbers 24:9, 1 Sam. 17:34. But also that you must be careful because the enemy is like a roaring lion seeking to destroy… There are at least 2 ways to look at this. I suggest doing a scripture keyword search on the word lion. Since you were praying about sickness and other things it is possible that both apply. Good luck, and I am excited to see what the out come maybe. God’s peace on you.

      Thank you, it certainly didn’t feel negative in anyway, it felt very comforting, but I will certainly take a look at those verses, I will keep you informed of what I find or indeed of any further revelation.

      I am also a Christian, indoctrinated a Catholic as a child. I frequently see an image of a lion while praying, sometimes being awaken from my sleep speaking in tongues. The image is electrifying like fire. I pray for wisdom and discernment as I am without guidance from an elder who can help me understand what is happening to me.
      I pray that we both are given the gift of knowledge and wisdom. For me, interpretation of tongues as well. In all honesty, it feels surreal as my faith is strong but had never been taught these spiritual gifts . I know my Lord has a divine purpose for this revelation as I am writing to you. He says to trust in Him with all our heart and not to rely on our own understanding. I do know in my heart that one message is clear, Our Lord and Savior is training us, discipline is painful, not pleasurable but it is to prepare us for spiritual military service and an abundant harvest to steward. May the Peace of the Lord remain with you nad you forever remain in His favor.

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. “Your enemy Satan prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith … ” (I Peter 5:8-9) A counselor who taught a dream interpretation class at church said a lot depends on how you feel about it. If you didn’t feel threatened, it probably wasn’t the enemy – unless it was a defeated, wounded lion. 😉

    My immediate reaction was that Jesus was with you and would not go away. However I do not claim to be able to interpret visions,Wayne. There may be others in your group, who see pictures or may be able to receive the interpretation. I have met a few people, who see pictures as they pray. Do not be afraid to share this with your group. Sue

      Hi Sue
      I do know a few at our Church who I think may be able to shed some light on the vision and I will definitely share this with the Group next time we meet, I’m sure it will be interesting discussion. As I said, I have had many visions before, but always to do with my personal situation and my own request for guidence, usually when I’m at a wits end about my situation with Victoria, I have seen many visions that encourage me, but this vision I really don’t think was for me, but I don’t know who it was meant for.

    Hi Wayne, I too have had a similar experience… my sons father was in a horrible accident hit by a drunk driver in July while he was riding a motorcycle…he almost died was in a coma I was praying to the lord all day, that night as I said my prayers and was about to go to sleep I had a vision in my left eye, as my eyes were closed, it looked as if there was a red amber colored laser beam drawing something as i looked on it drew a complete lion with the eyes and everything, then dissapeared after a second…the drs said he would be paralyzed from the waiste down by he has been defying the odds since and is slowly regaining movement…I dont know if this helps but the similarities from your story jumped out at me I wonder if it is a healing vision from the lord? Let me know your thoughts. Very Truly, chrystie

      Hi Chrystie
      I too feel that Jesus was the lion, this was around the time I made the decision to come off the anti-depressants, there were many moments I felt that I was being told that the battle was over, I was healed of the pain and free from it, but I guess I felt I couldn’t quite let go of it even though I came off the treatment. That was until last weekend when I was away, almost a year on from when it started I felt I was being told it was over, the battle was won, move on now and let go once and for all.
      I am constantly amazed being the images and visions I get, even if I don’t understand them at the time, in time they play themselves out in reality and all is revealed. I hope and pray your Son’s father continues with His recovery.
      Thank you so much for your comments.
      God bless

        Thanks for responding Wayne,
        This is the first vision I have ever had and I have been quite confused at first… some people told me the lion was the devil but it just didnt make sense to me as I was in prayer at the time…I felt in my heart that it was from god and needed to figure out what it meant. All my research brought me to jesus and the tribe of Judah…as I researched I realized alot of people have been having lion visions (all different) visions but visions of lions and I feel that it is Jesus letting us know he was the lamb but is now the lion and is coming back shortly but he is all powerful and in his name we can be healed! My sons fathers recovery has been so amazing that Drs from Boston are actually going to his rehab to see it for themselves, because they cant believe that with the injuries he sustained hes not only alive but actually making major progress! Praise Jesus! I would like to hear more of your visions… is there somewhere I can go to view them? I pray for your struggle with depression that it no longer has authority over you and the lord jesus binds it and sends it wherever he wishes to, in the name of Jesus holy blood! Amen!

          Hi Chrystie
          I’ve have written at various times about a number of my visions, although not all. They come in different forms, from just simple visions when my eyes are closed during prayer, to almost video like projections before me in the plain of day, with the most vivid being my first experience where I witnessed a conversation three times in my head, before having the very conversation some weeks later, some of these visions are outlined in the following posts:

    Thanks Wayne I do like that song…your visions are very inspiring proving that the holy spirit is hard at work…I think the vision of the girl and her ending up contacting from America (where Im from) was wonderful! I watched a movie the other night called “Deliver us from evil” its about a NY police detective that stumbled on some evil and witnessed several possesions by the evil one and since has dedicated his life to fighting for the lord Jesus. I dont know why I felt the need to tell you about the movie, but I just think it proves that GOD is real… threre is really evil out there and Jesus is the only weapon against it! The power of prayer is amazing and GOD chooses whom he gives gifts to because he knows who are his best warriors, it sounds to me that GOD has chosen you to deliver important messages just like he chose that NY police officer…watch the movie if you can its on DEMAND (I dont know if you guys have Comcast on Demand) in the UK but if you have something similar you should rent it! I havent mentioned this before but I too suffer from addiction and have been clean almost 4 years now…with the lord by my side I am strong but am still dealing with the aftermath…I pray continuously for the strength and protection from the evil one and hope one day when its all said and done…I may also help others.
    GOD BLESS

    I also had the same experience TWICE. It was the head of a lion with leaf pedals surrounding it as it’s mane. golden eye rings were it’s eyes. I’ve seen this happen the first time: I had waken up from a dream one night and saw it in a fraction of a second. It was staring at me from my dresser, filled with some sort of golden light in it’s eyes. The second time, it appeared when i closed my eyes in prayer, but the vision was much closer in perspective to where i could only see half the face. I might be bad at describing this vision, so i uploaded a digitally accurate photo of what I saw.

      Dear all,
      I am so happy to find this post…I had hat vision twice and I was amazed with the picture that Jonas posted…it is extremely similar to what I saw! Mine was just a little bit more green :). Well after reading all the answers and putting it in prespective into my life I do believe it was Jesus and to all of us he was reashuring that our prayers were heard. I think the message underneath is: ” Your prayers have been heard and now you just have to be brave (as a lion)…everything will be fine”.
      Lots of love and blessings :).

    Hey sister in christ! 🙂 wow i find this really amazing! I have a similar situation as you. I was searching for descriptions about lion, could’t find any that hit right to the point. Two of my believer friends and I were praying for blessing over this two teenage non believer friends (seemingly curious about god) and also about one of their brother who have a leg injury. We were praying and i saw this mental image of a lion face, follow on by a beautiful, cute and innocent-looking baby. Afterwards when the two boys left, my friend believer friend A prayed for my believer friend B and I that we would be more rooted in god and so on. At that point of time i couldn’t help but keep thinking about the lion head and the baby and as i was thinking and asking god about it, i feel that the lion i saw earlier on was leaping around going towards the right and then the left and then the right again and then the left. Its whole body was blazing furiously with fire, and the whole image just feels really fiery, hot and full of passion. I couldn’t find a reason for this, it all doesn’t feel fitting. Hi all, do any of you have any thoughts about this? 😁

    To add on, the vision i mentioned earlier on, the place the lion is in feels like a desert and the baby was in a separate place, like just a black empty space with a chubby fair skin cute baby in white cloth smiling, seemingly really happy. Im sorry to trouble you but do any of you have any ideas about this?? I really want to find out the reason behind this vision and do something about it as god leads 😁 Any comments will be greatly appreciated!! ^^

    A few days ago, I had a strange vision. I had been in a state of almost sleep, but this woke me up! The vision was like a drawing made of bluish green lightning on a black background. The first “picture” was a pentagram with baphomet’s whole body over it surrounded by a circle. The baphomet morphed into a lion’s head that opened it’s mouth to roar and the mouth got ever bigger until it all went black.
    I then opened my eyes not believing what I saw and closed them again.
    The second time the same image came to me as if from distance up and to the right. This time, though, it was baphomet’s head over the pentagram and the lion’s head came out of it in 3D and turned it’s head and roared from side to side. The lion’s head was very detailed in it’s face and mane. When the picture was in front of me, it faded into little granules…like sand.
    I opened my eyes and closed them again, but the vision did not return.
    After much contemplation, I think the lion’s head was God and that He is very angry with what is going on in the world and He is going to overcome satan. I’m not sure what to do with this as God usually “speaks” to me-not in visions.
    Your thoughts on this would be appreciated.

    I don’t know how old your story here, but I’m one of the people who are looking for the meaning of the Lion…I’ve had the same vision as you the difference is that mine had two living beings besides it with wings the descended from heaven down on heart stayed for quite some time as I was looking… Then ascended back to heaven

    All of this I’m about to say took place a little more than two hours ago. I was reading the book of Proverbs and then I had a question about Proverbs 10:19-“In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.” The question was that how could I tame my tongue more. When I looked up Bible verses about taming the tongue James 3:1-12 was the first thing that showed up. Before I could get through the first few verses I had a vision. It was close up, I could only see the forehead, down to the lower part of it’s nose, not seeing the nostrills. I think it had medium-dark brown fur. It’s eyes were yellow or rather a golden color as if it was night. It was so clear and vivid. I kind of think I saw a cheetah in my vision because it’s eyes was similar to a cheetah but at the same time it’s facial structure was much like a lion so, it could’ve been a lion. I’m not sure if it was a lion because it’s pupils were a bit bigger than the average lion. I don’t know exactly what this is or what this means but it means something. Thank you for taking out your time reading this, and I’d really appreciate if someone responded. God bless you all.

    In 2007 as I was saying my nightly prayers, I seen a Lions Head with a rainbow halo encamped around it. It didn’t make me worried or nervous but it brought me a peace. I didn’t want it to go away. Its Peace, Gods peace that surpasses all understanding.

    When I studied the interpretation of dreams, the teacher (a Christian counselor) would ask how we felt in the dream. Was the image comforting or frightening? If it was comforting, it could well have been the Lion of Judah, but if you felt threatened by it, it might have been a warning or an indication that you and your prayer partners are doing battle. Check out I Peter 5: 8-9.

    In the Bible, lions represent mostly good and positive things. In general, lions symbolize bravery, strength, courage and protections. Dreams in which a person sees a lion or becomes a friend with this majestic and dangerous animal are extremely positive, because they mean a dreamer enjoys great celestial protection. Be blessed 🙌

    I was praying and sitting on the floor. Asking GOD to strengthen the gift of the HOLY SPIRIT in me so I can hear from GOD. So I can have better understanding of HIS word. Asking GOD to help me quite my mind so I can hear from HIM. Eyes closed and sitting there on the floor. I start to see in my mind piece of the face of a lion. Like it’s coming to me in small sections. First the eyes, I felt like these cat like eyes were deep and pricing, seeing all of me the true me. Then I saw the musle and whiskers. Then a quick glimps o the mouth. Last the nose which kept getting closer. It made me flinch a couple of times. It felt so close and the nose was so huge ( almost bigger than my face). In all of this I did not feel fear, just curious and a pit playful. Like I wanted to reach out and touch the Big Cat and snuggle into it. I felt comfortable. But then it was gone, and I opened my eyes. Stuff like this don’t happen to me. But I have been praying to be more sensitive to GODs voice latley. Longing to hear from here.

    i was camping in England in a tent with my husband. It was rainning. I was sleeping but saw a vision of a lion just his head, roaring and very bright color.. Right in my face. I was shocked as i never experienced this kind of thing before. I do believe the Lord is saying to Wake up and it is time to be bold as a lion to tell people about Jesus ,
