Have you ever cried in church? ( besides at a wedding, funeral, etc )

during just a regular sunday morning church service?

Why ?

I mean i understand that God touches peoples lives in so many ways, but I really just dont understand it ( not bashing, just wondering )

I believe in God, but I have never found myself having the urge to cry over him.

In church I have seen several people cry, not just a few tears, but bawling, to where some cant even get off of the floor and needs help up and this is every sunday .

  • You must attend a very charismatic church...

  • I have cried over the music sometimes. I really gets to me particularly if it is something that reminds me of a deceased loved one.

  • I have cried before when the sermon really touched me. My husband's family goes to a Church of God church where they "faint" every Sunday, now that I don't understand, but I guess God touches everyone in a different way.

  • I have for a variety of reasons...sometimes I have had a"wall" up and was running from something deep inside and then the pastor says something that crashes through that wall and brings out the tears..kinda like in therapy when your holding back the truth and then the therapist says something that hits the nail on the head and brings out the emotion

  • I do, quite often. When the praise and worship music touches me, when the Pastor's sermon is on fire, and we can feel the move of God in our midst. It's very moving, and many tears are shed. We attend a large Assembly of God church, and so tears are the norm during our services,but in a very good way! :)

  • Yes i have. Not every time but sometimes something in a message or song will finally click with me and it just makes you cry. Its hard to explain for me unless youve experienced it. Plus i dont really know you or your heart in God to explain it in a way that may be understandable to you

  • yes, by myself,so that nobody will know. Do you mean loudly wailing like they do in some of those nutty churches? then,NO.

  • Yup almost everytime i go to church i cry. usually i fight the tears though so most would not notice..
    Usually when they ask people to go to the alter for prayer it stirs emotions up... or some songs seem to hit something..

  • Of coarse, everytime God heals another part of me. I don't cry everytime I go to church but when God touches me there's no stopping the tears. But you do know that you don't have be in church for that to happen though?
