    Crying during worship

    I was just wondering...why do we cry sometimes when we're deep into worship?

    Naomi, I think we are just so in awe of God and His presence that we can't help but cry during worship. We are so aware of what He has done for us too.
    Jesus is Lord.

    I agree with all of the above! In my experience it has been when God has been healing me from past hurts too, but just the thought of his awesome love and mercy, that we don't deserve at all, is enough to make me emotional.

    When we are in the presence of god the thought that we are the biggest sinners in the whole world ,but still he considers us as his sons and daughters make us weep.i believe as god's child will weep only before god and will never weep when we confront the hardships of the material world .It is only gud to wep bcoz its a symbol of your humility

    Naomi,

    I agree with the others about weeping with joy in the presence of the Holy Spirit. It is absolutely awesome, and don't ever hold it in. I do have one question for you. Do you ever cry from the innermost part of yourself for no reason, or maybe someone comes to mind and this happens? The reason I ask is I am an intercessor (actually we all are to different degrees). Sometimes a burden will come on my heart and I cry a gut wrenching cry like a baby for sometimes over an hour. Sometimes this happens for reasons I am unaware of and sometimes God puts someone on my heart during this. Many times I pray in tongues before or after this. Do you ever experience this?

    At the risk of sounding completely crazy, I had a similar experience once. I was praying for someone close to me who had been slipping into "darkness." I literally cried and groaned aloud for hours. (Something that is totally out of character for me! I've never been able to cry for more than 10 minutes or so, and never very loudly.) :embarasse
    Anyway the next day he had a complete turn around and has been going STRONG for the Lord ever since!
    Maybe it has something to do with Romans 8:26+27
    We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And He who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes on behalf of the saints in accordance with God's will.

    :love:

    This Time the Crying Didn't Help

    Naomi, I cry a lot during worship. My daughter thinks I'm weird. I can't help it, God touches me and I just can't stop. It seems to be a way to express deep emotions that have no words.
    This past Sunday I was sitting in church and the assistant pastor had an altar call before the sermon, for ones that felt led---to come to the altar and lay their burdens down. I was very burdened, myself, but was holding my baby on my lap and my teenaged daughter was at home with a cold. So I did not go to the altar. I sat there and sobbed (loudly). I didn't have any control over quieting myself. I had my eyes shut so I don't know if people were staring at me or not and didn't much care. They stare at me anyway, because I'm the first white person to join that church, lol.
    I would like anyone who reads this to pray for me---I am extremely depressed. The crying that I did Sunday morning didn't seem to release any of the sorrow. I just left the church feeling worse than when I got there.
    I have been so heavy with sorrow the past week or so. Please pray for me, I would really appreciate it.
    Thanks,
    Dreamer

    I believe for me that it is a wonderful feeling of cleansing and letting go
