A prisoner is a person who becomes incarcerated for committing crimes, or even for standing up for the truth in certain instances. A prisoner is subject to a person or institution.
Positive: To dream of being a prisoner could represent that God has set you apart and called you to be His prisoner.
Negative: Dreaming of being a prisoner could symbolize that you are oppressed. Seeing a prisoner in a dream could represent an unbeliever or a person who is captive by the devil.
(Genesis 39:20; Isaiah 24:22; Ephesians 4:1; Psalm 146:7).
