November 30, 2008 7:10pm CST
hellow i am superblessed for attending a two day retreat. if your interested to know that retreat you can visit anyway since it is a catholic charismatic renewal activity there are a lot of worship songs sang by the choir while worship leaders are encouraging people to sang also. i am truly touched by a lot of songs even came to the point of crying. i intensely felt the presence of God in every song that we sang. do you also feel this whenever your attending service to your church? do you also feel the presence of God while your singing songs of worship to Him? please do share your experience. be blessed

I am not a very emotional person and I do not like to cry, however during worship service, I have cried, I haven't lately though. I sing in the choir, so when we sing sometimes,I feel the annointing that can only come from God. Usually I get chills, or I have this feeling where I am so filled up, that I have to move just to release some of the energy, I can't be totally still, I just can't sit there. It'll be something small like shaking my leg, or just rocking from side to side. There is no one like Jesus! May God Continue To Bless You!

God bless you also. This is true, the feeling is unexplainable! all you can do is pray while serenading the Lord through worship songs! Happy posting!

Oh I have cried many times during worship and prayer. The emotions are varied to when it comes on, love, joy, thankfulness, sorrow, repentance. I believe the more we open up to God and get past the fear of man and just focus on all God is and has done for us, the more we will feel during worship and crying or just tears may flow. God meets us where we are and works within us as much as we allow him with an open, humble heart. In the past I have not felt anything and have been self conscious of those around me and have not been open to God however he wanted to reveal himself. In those instances, I felt so far from God and self aborbed and fearful and dissatisfied. I'd ask myself, where is the Joy they speak of, where is the Peace? Then, I had an awakening that I needed to stop focusing on me and focus on God. God loves me and desires me to spend time with him one on one in worship and prayer and that giving him my all is the only thing that matters. Giving him my all in worship, my body, my life, my thoughts. That its not about me but about God and that I'll never find true joy and peace until God is the first priority in my life at all times. Then I was baptized with the Holy Spirit after being a lukewarm christian for 40 years and began to feel so much more of God via the Holy Spirit during worship and prayer. Actual physical feelings that I had never felt before. My prayer life exploded with the prayer he provided. I have a hunger for God like I could never have imagined. He is constantly working on me and I'm still growing and learning all about what he is doing in and how to hear him more but know that I have finally found the Joy and Peace they always talked about!!!

Well, as an Apostolic Pentecostal, there are many times I have cried while being in Church and during Song and Worship service. For me, there is truly nothing wrong with that as well. It just shows to god how grateful you are for who he is, and what he has done for you in your life as well. I enjoy listening to Christian music and having a chance to worship Jesus in spirit and in song. For me, there is nothing out there that is better as well.
