Tears in Scripture play a unique role in spiritual breakthrough. These verses in Psalm 126 reveal that the planting of seeds along with a spirit of brokenness will not only give a spiritual harvest, but will also impart the one sowing with a spirit of rejoicing in the process. Charles H. Spurgeon termed the “ministry of tears” as “liquid prayer.”

He will not shout or cry out,or raise his voice in the streets.A bruised reed he will not break,and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out.In faithfulness he will bring forth justice…Isaiah 42:14.
This week, we see the city of Sana’a, Yemen weeping for God to deliver them from oppression and injustice and for God to rescue those who have nowhere to turn. “We feel our land is forgotten and that the world doesn’t know what is happening to us in Yemen. We cry night and day for things to change and for the great suffering of people here to end.”
- We are turning to you God for the city of Sana’a Yemen. May the tears of travail that are falling from the prayers of Your people, water the ground of hardness that will open the soil for the seed of the Gospel.
- Make a way Lord, where there is no way. May a great witness come out of this city for your Name sake. Bring justice and restore what has been destroyed.
