This is a prayer for revelation of hidden things. Do you ever feel like you are on the brink of something but you are not quite sure where you are in the process? You know that something is about the manifest but you’re not quite sure when, or even where?
The enemy wants nothing more than for you to miss it. He wants to keep everything hidden so you are stumbling around in darkness. He doesn’t want you to ever come to revelation of who you are and what is available to you in Christ. The enemy can sometimes put road blocks or obstacles in our paths to trip us up or cause us to give up in frustration right before our breakthrough happens.
God also hides things from us as well. If you think about it, there is no way God will show us every little detail of our lives from start to finish. We probably wouldn’t be able to handle it if He were to show us everything all at once.
God wants to show us where we are in our process today and what steps we need to take to get us to our next place and fulfill our destiny and purpose.
Here are some bible verses about revelation of hidden things.
Luke 8:17 (NKJV) “For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.”
Daniel 2:22 (NKJV) “He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him.”
John 15:15 (NIV) “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”
Proverbs 25:2 “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter. ‘
Amos 3:7 “Surely the Lord GOD does nothing Unless He reveals His secret counsel To His servants the prophets.”
1 Corinthians 2:9-10(NIV) “However, as it is written:“What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard,and what no human mind has conceived”—the things God has prepared for those who love him— these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.”
Ephesians 1:9 (NIV) “He made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ,”
Proverbs 4:18 “The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.”
We can see from these scriptures that God does want us to know His will. He wants us to know the way He wants us to know how to get where we need to be. How do we find out these hidden things? We ask Him.
The Prayer for Revelation of hidden things will be based on Jeremiah 33:3.
The best time to pray this is at night before you go to bed. During this process God will speak to you when your mind is calm and your spirit is at rest. So you want to get in bed and meditate on this scripture and then pray this prayer. Be assured that you will have dreams, see visions or God Himself will talk to you and let you know.
Jeremiah 33:3 (NKJV)‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’
Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV) ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’
Jeremiah 33:3 (MSG) ‘Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own.’
Father God, I come to you in the name of Jesus and ask that you reveal to me where I am in the process of _______(state what it is you need to know about specifically)________. Please reveal to me if the enemy has set up obstacles to stop me from receiving this. Show me strategies to overcome the obstacles of the enemy. Make it clear to me what is holding this back in the spirit realm. Make my path shine as bright as the morning sun. Your word says that I should call to you and you would show me great and mighty things which I do not know. I’m calling out to You now God and I am asking for divine revelation. I trust You and I trust Your word. I know that you are going to give me revelation on ________. Where am I in this process Lord? What is my next step? What do I need to do to move this forward? Thank you for answering me. Thank you for allowing me access to your throne room. I praise you Jehovah Rohi because you know all and you see all. My entire life and destiny is in Your hands and I know you can bring it all to pass, in Jesus Name, Amen.

Bible Verses About Faith
We are all children of God. He loves us and knows our needs, and He wants us to communicate with Him through prayer. As we make a habit of approaching God in prayer, we will come to know Him and draw ever nearer to Him. Our desires will become more like His. We will be able to secure for ourselves and for others blessings that He is ready to give if we will but ask in faith.
As we strive to make prayer a part of our lives, we should remember to make our prayers meaningful. The prophet Mormon warned that if anyone “shall pray and not with real intent of heart … it profiteth him nothing, for God receiveth none such” (Moroni 7:9). To make our prayers meaningful, we must pray with sincerity and “with all the energy of heart” (Moroni 7:48) and avoid “vain repetitions” (see Matthew 6:7).
When we make a request through prayer, we must do all we can to assist in its being granted. Heavenly Father expects us to do more than merely ask Him for blessings. When we have an important decision to make, He often will require that we “study it out in mind” before He will give us an answer (see D&C 9:7-8). Our prayers for guidance will be only as effective as our efforts to be receptive to the whisperings of the Holy Ghost. Our prayers for our own welfare and for the welfare of others will be in vain if we “turn away the needy, and the naked, and visit not the sick and afflicted, and impart of your substance, if ye have, to those who stand in need” (Alma 34:28).
Always give thanks to Heavenly Father (see Alma 34:38), take time to remember our blessings, and seek Heavenly Father’s guidance and strength in all we do. Alma counseled his son Helaman: “Cry unto God for all thy support; yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord; yea, let all thy thoughts be directed unto the Lord; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever” (Alma 37:36; see also Alma 34:17-26). We should offer prayers “for welfare, and also for the welfare of those who are around ” (Alma 34:27). We should ask our Heavenly Father to bless and comfort those in need.
Seek the guidance of the Holy Ghost so we will know what to include in our prayers. The Holy Ghost can teach us to pray and guide us in the things we say (see Romans 8:26; 2 Nephi 32:8; 3 Nephi 19:9, 24). He can help us pray “according to the will of God” (D&C 46:30).
At least every morning and every night, we should find a place that is free from distractions and kneel in humility and commune with our Heavenly Father. We should never give in to the idea that we are not worthy to pray. This idea comes from Satan, who wants to convince us that we must not pray (see 2 Nephi 32:8). If we do not feel like praying, we should pray until we do feel like praying.
The Savior has commanded, “Pray always, that you may come off conqueror; yea, that you may conquer Satan, and that you may escape the hands of the servants of Satan that do uphold his work” (D&C 10:5). Although we cannot be continuously on our knees, always offering a personal, private prayer, we can let our hearts be “full, drawn out in prayer unto continually” (Alma 34:27; see also 3 Nephi 20:1). Throughout each day, we can maintain a constant feeling of love for our Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son. Heavenly Father hears our prayers. He may not always answer as we expect, but He does answer—in His own time and according to His will. Because He knows what is best for us, He may sometimes answer no, even when our petitions are sincere.
Answers to prayer come in many ways. They often come through the Holy Ghost, from the circumstances of our lives, or through the kind acts of those around us. As we continue to draw near to our Heavenly Father through prayer, we will recognize more readily His merciful and wise answers to our pleadings. We will find that He is our “refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1).
Revelation is communication from God to His children. This guidance comes through various channels according to the needs and circumstances of individuals, families, and the Church as a whole. When the Lord reveals His will to the Church, He speaks through His prophet. According to our faithfulness, we can receive revelation to help us with our specific personal needs, responsibilities, and questions and to help us strengthen our testimony.
The scriptures tell of different types of revelation, such as visions, dreams, and visitations by angels. However, most revelations to leaders and members of the Church come through the whisperings of the Holy Ghost. Quiet spiritual promptings may not seem as spectacular as visions or angelic visitations, but they are just as powerful and lasting and life changing. The witness of the Holy Ghost makes an impression on the soul that is more significant than anything we can see or hear. Through such revelations, we will receive lasting strength to stay true to the gospel and help others do the same.
The following counsel will help us prepare to receive promptings from the Holy Ghost: Pray for guidance, be reverent and humble, keep the commandments, partake of the sacrament worthily, study the scriptures every day, and take time to ponder.
When seeking specific guidance, we should study the matter out in our minds. At times the Lord’s communication will come only after we have studied a matter out in our minds. Patiently seek God’s will. God reveals Himself “in his own time, and in his own way, and according to his own will” (see D&C 88:63-68). Revelation will often come line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little. We should be patient and trust in the Lord’s timing.
Amid the many noises and messengers in the world today, we must learn to recognize the whisperings of the Holy Ghost. Following are some of the principal ways the Holy Ghost communicates with us:
He speaks to the mind and heart in a still, small voice (D&C 8:2-3). Although such revelation can have a powerful effect on us, it almost always comes quietly, as a “still small voice” (see 1 Kings 19:9-12; Helaman 5:30; D&C 85:6).
He prompts us through our feelings. Although we often describe communication from the Spirit as a voice, that voice is one that we feel more than we hear.
He brings peace. The Holy Ghost is often called the Comforter (see John 14:26; D&C 39:6). As He reveals the will of the Lord to us, He will “speak peace” to our minds (D&C 6:23).

Table of contents
Basic Structure of the Book of Revelation
Reading the Book of Revelation can be challenging — the storyline twists and turns and isn’t strictly chronological. The author of the Book of Revelation, Saint John the Divine, offers a transcription of seven letters and later describes strange beasts, visions of judgments, governments, demonic battles, heaven, and a new world order — a prophetic vision for the end of the world. Even through all of this there is a clear structure; take a look at the layout of the Book of Revelation:
Prologue (Rev. 1)
Letters to the seven churches (Rev. 2–3)
The throne room and the scroll with seven seals (Rev. 4–5)
Judgments and vignettes
Seal judgments (Rev. 6)
144,000; the multitude (Rev. 7)
Trumpet judgments (Rev. 8–9)
The angel and a little scroll (Rev. 10)
Two witnesses (Rev. 11)
A pregnant woman and the dragon (Rev. 12)
Two beasts (Rev. 13)
144,000 on Mount Zion; three angels; harvest of the earth (Rev. 14)
Bowl judgments and the battle of Armageddon (Rev. 15–16)
A woman on the beast and the fall of Babylon (Rev. 17–18)
The Millennium and the Last Judgment (Rev. 19–20)
A new heaven and new earth (Rev. 21)
Epilogue (Rev. 22)
Interpreting the Book of Revelation
The real meaning of the Bible’s Book of Revelation is a popular, ongoing debate. You’ll find four major interpretive approaches to the Book of Revelation that can help you read, understand, and figure out the apocalyptic letter of John. Key to understanding commentaries on Revelations is knowing the position of the commentator.
Here are brief definitions of the four major interpretive approaches:
Preterist: Revelation speaks of things that are already history. The book isn’t prophecy about the end of time; it’s directed at Christians trying to live their faith in the Roman Empire. This is the prevailing view among modern scholars who aren’t aligned with orthodox Christianity. Strength: The observation that the book was intended for a first-century audience. Weakness: Fails to take seriously the idea that the Holy Spirit can reveal what’s going to happen, as the book purports to do.
Historicist: Revelation gives a bird’s eye view of the entire sweep of Christian church history, from the post-Pentecost church (Acts 2) until Jesus returns. This view has few adherents today. Strength: The conviction that God controls the course of history. Weakness: Revelation then has little relevance for its original audience; also, historicists have wildly divergent views concerning the particulars.
Idealist: There’s no correlation between the visions and any historical reality; they’re simply symbols of the ongoing struggle between good and evil. Strength: The recognition that the book clearly communicates enduring ideals. Weakness: Divorces ideas from history, thereby calling into question Jesus’s historical death, resurrection, and ascension.
Futurist: By the sixth seal (6:12–17), the book describes events leading up to Jesus’s return. Glances at earlier stages of redemptive history (as in Rev. 12) illuminate End Time events. The focus is on a historical struggle that unfolds at the end of the age and climaxes with Jesus’s Second Coming. Strength: Incorporates the insights of the other views without sacrificing the essential point of their position: namely, that the book prophesies a literal return of Jesus and a new creation. Weakness: The weakness of the futuristic view is that it interprets 1:9–3:22 just like preterists and historicists, that is, as referring to the first century. Then it declares that at 4:1, or at least by 6:12, the sixth seal, everything else is about the final period of earth history before Christ returns. Critics find this arbitrary and therefore unconvincing.
Book of Revelation: Perspectives on the Millennial Kingdom
The exact meaning of the Millenium, the 1,000 year reign that John speaks of in Revelation 20, is a centuries-old debate in Christian circles. One problem comes from the different interpretations concerning the meaning of the Millenium. The following chart can help you sort out these respective viewpoints:
|Beginning of the Millennium||Jesus’s Second Coming||Jesus’s resurrection||When a majority of the of the Millennium world’s population
converts to Jesus
|Duration||1,000 years or a long period of time||Undetermined; lasts until Jesus’s Second||Undetermined; lasts until Jesus’s Second|
|Jesus’s type of reign||Physical, earthly||Spiritual (through conversion)||Spiritual (through conversion)|
|Tribulation (period of suffering before Jesus’s Second
|Literal 7-year period||Brief period before Jesus’s Second||Brief period before Jesus’s Second|
|Timing of the rapture (transport of believers to heaven)||Before the Tribulation, halfway through, or after it||Occurs as part of Jesus’s Second Coming||Occurs as part of Jesus’s Second Coming|
