Why do Christians fall down in prayer?


I can't find in the bible where Jesus or the disciples made the people to fall under the anointing. The thing is, a non believer said such things are fake and there is no mention of this phenomena written in the New Testament...what should I answer according to scriptures?

    There are two examples of this "being slain in the Spirit" in scripture and both were dead before they hit the ground. What you see in the chuches of men are people stirred up intoa frenzy and they get caught up in emotions

    A word of caution: be careful not to judge or belittle experiences of others, and especially of classifying them as demonic. Jesus declared that those who have not yet tasted the new wine still desire the old. Taste & see that the Lord is good!
