Mick McCarthy's men are on course to win the league after overcoming a patchy run of results and are sitting pretty at the summit, five points clear of second-placed Birmingham with six games left to play.
The Wolverhampton-born midfielder, who has played a pivotal role in Wolves' campaign this season, admits he is more excited than most about their imminent success.
"I have dreamt about lifting the Championship trophy as captain," Henry told the Express and Star.
"I look forward to that day and hope and pray it happens now. If we get promoted it will be massive for everyone associated with the club but for me being the local lad in the team, I admit I will be the first one jumping up and throwing everything around the room.
"I can't wait for that day. We are getting so close now and it is a really exciting time for the club now."
