HANDS LIFTED UP
The lifting up of hands can
mean many things. It can be a physical response of heartfelt agreement with a thought, in a song sung, or a word spoken.
It also expresses our total surrender to God in true worship of Him. Whatever it may mean to the individual, the lifting
of our hands is a valid expression of worship, so stated in both the Old and New Testament.
Psalm 134:2 says: "Lift up your hands
in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord."
1 Timothy 2:8 says: "I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy
hands,without wrath and doubting."
