When you pray, do you think about who you are praying to? Of course, of course. I mean… thinking about what the disciples… saw when Jesus was transfigured on the Mount of Olives. Jesus was transformed before them. His clothes became shining white… whiter than any launderer on earth could ever get (Mark 9:3). When John had a vision of Jesus in Revelation 1, His eyes were as a flame of fire, His head and hair were white like wool, His feet were like fine brass refined in the fire, His voice was like the sound of many waters, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.
Can you see it?
Also, in Daniel 7, Daniel describes a vision of the Ancient of Days. Check it out. In this case, I believe Daniel is referring to a vision of the Father and the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven to meet Him. But look at the imagery. Remember when Jesus answered the high priest at His trial, He said “Hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power and coming on the clouds of heaven”.
I love coming before God in prayer and being able to read these visions of Him and be amazed at His person. He dwells in unapproachable light, yet by His unmerited favor that He shows us, He allows us to know Him… or rather, to be known by Him.
“I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which He will bring about at the proper time– He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.” – I Timothy 6:13-16
