A prawn is a crustacean similar to a shrimp. Prawns spend most of their lives finding food and molting. In a dream, a prawn can symbolize the growth process a person is going through.
Positive: Dreaming that a prawn is molting or shedding its skin can represent that you are in a season of growth in spiritual things. It can mean that you are in a season of metamorphosis.
Negative: In a dream, seeing a prawn that is refusing to eat and grow could mean that you are not studying the Word and ways of God. It could symbolize that your spiritual growth is stunted.
(1 Corinthians 13:11; 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Timothy 2:15).
