Liquid prayer the ministry of tears.

Liquid prayer the ministry of tears.

Those who sow in tears

Shall reap in joy.

He who continually goes forth

Weeping, bearing seed for sowing,

Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing

Bringing his sheaves with him. Psalm126:5,6.


Tears in Scripture play a unique role in spiritual breakthrough. Here we discover that the planting of seeds accompanied by a spirit of brokenness will not only bring a spiritual harvest of results, but will leave the sower with a spirit of rejoicing in the process.

This passage along with numerous others in Scripture regarding a spirit of brokenness, pictures a variety of purposes and functions related to what might be termed “The ministry of tears,” a ministry Charles H. Spurgeon defined a “liquid prayer.”

  1. There are tears of sorrow or suffering 2 Kings 20:5
  2. There are tears of joy Genesis 33:4
  3. There are tears of compassion John 11:35
  4. There are tears of desperation Ester 4:1,3
  5. There are tears of travail, or giving birth Isaiah 42:14
  6. There are tears of repentance Joel 2:12,13

Passion in spiritual warfare is clearly needed.
