Your Tears Is Emotional Worship and Prayer | The Importance of Using Emotions

What do tears mean in the Bible?

The flow of tears is the evidence of sorrow in the prospect of approaching death in Psalms 39:12; 2 Kings 20:5; Isaiah 38:5, and of the suffering consequent on oppression (Ecclesiastes 4:1), or defeat in battle (Isaiah 16:9), or hopeless remorse, as with Esau (Hebrews 12:17, probably referring to Genesis 27:34).




Yahshua prayed with tears

While Jesus lived on earth, he prayed to Yah (God) and asked Yah (God) for help. He prayed with loud cries and tears to the One who could save him from death, and his prayer was heard because he trusted Yah (God). Even though Yahshua (Jesus) was the Son of Yah (God), he learned obedience by what he suffered.


What does crying do spiritually?

It cleanses us. It shakes deep down, pent-up feelings loose so they can surface, and we can face them. It builds resolve. It gives vent to grief, guilt, anger, fear, frustration, joy, and happiness.


According to the Fathers, tears are gratuitously given by Yah (God), and allow us to experience conversion by passing from contrition (penthos) into enlightenment. The gift of tears brings healing from the harm caused by sin and leads us from sorrow to joy.


Are tears a form of prayer?

Whether they result from physical pain, emotional pain, or from an encounter with goodness and beauty, one of the gifts of tears is precisely that we pray through them. All of our tears have been taken into the divine life by Jesus, who has wept with us. Psalm 56:8 says, “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book”




Where in the Bible does it say the Most High keeps our tears in a bottle?


"Tears are prayers too. They travel to Yah (God) when we can't speak." Psalm 56:8 "You keep track of all my sorrows.


Psalm 56:8 says, “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book” (NLT). These are beautiful words written by David when he was undergoing a dark time in his life.


Whether they result from physical pain, from emotional pain, or from an encounter with goodness and beauty, one of the gifts of tears is precisely that we pray through them. All of our tears have been taken into the divine life by Yahshua (Jesus), the one who has wept with us.


While Jesus lived on earth, he prayed to Yah (God) and asked Yah (God) for help. He prayed with loud cries and tears to the One who could save him from death, and his prayer was heard because he trusted God. Even though Yahshua (Jesus) was the Son of Yah (God), he learned obedience by what he suffered.


Each tear is a blessing and a gift, even when they teach hard lessons of love or loss. Remember, our emotions are precious, even Yahshua (Jesus) wept. When life's memorable moments come and little tears spring into the corners of your eyes, do not hide them away from shame, embarrassment, or retreat.


Rev. 21 Verses 1 to 4

He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and Yah (God) himself will be with them; [4] he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.
