Brothers and Sisters, May I strongly suggest you to listen to this message. It was literally an eye opener to me. There was a time when I was often deeply touched by the Lord, and even in conversations to others and during preaching or praying the Lord would make my tears flow. I found that very embarrassing, so I once asked the Lord if he could stop my flow of tears. He did; but my heart towards him and others grew cold as well. So I told him that I was sorry for that I that he could stir my spirit to tears wherever and whenever he wanted - and he restored tears to me. Tears are scriptural; just run a search on the bible on tears and you see God's blessing released and break through accomplished.Even Jesus wept.Lord, save us from correct, cold, dead and dry-eyed theology and prayer that knows no tears!

I agree brothers. This was an eye opening sermon. When there are no tears there is pride or hardness of heart. If I sense no tears of compassion or gratitude or repentance I know something is not right in my heart. My eyes are dry, my faith is oldMy heart is hard, my prayers are coldAnd I know how I need to beAlive to You and dead to meOh what can be done for an old heart like mineSoften it up with oil and wineThe oil is You, Your Spirit of loveWash me anew in the wine of your blood(A Keith Green song)Need prayers, sister L
