Acts 10:9-11 King James Version (KJV)
9 On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:
10 And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,
11 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending upon him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:

Acts 10:9-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
Peter’s Vision

9 The next day, as they went on their journey and drew near the city, Peter went up on the housetop to pray, about the sixth hour. 10 Then he became very hungry and wanted to eat; but while they made ready, he fell into a trance 11 and saw heaven opened and an object like a great sheet bound at the four corners, descending to him and let down to the earth.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

9 Peter would have made it a habit to prayer based on the way it states he got to himself to pray, which Jesus had set a standard for both personal prayer and praying with other believers, He often prayed with His disciples, at the garden both are done as Jesus went by Himself to pray and encouraged the disciples to pray together. Pray is a very important part of our life.

10 This is similar wording to when God did this to Abraham to make His covenant with him and I say it would have been a very similar effect that God brought on them both. Its states it in way to show this was not a dream and Peter had not gone crazy but the Lord brought this to Him. God can still work in this way but it will always be according to His word and will, if its never then the vision isn’t of God.

11 The four corners symbolize the four corners of the earth which means the vision refers to all people. It descending means this came from the Lord.
