Have you ever been to a church where some of the people are lifting up their hands during worship and praising God? Not in the way you might picture charasmatics doing it, but more privately, hardly noticeable. Two questions come to mind when I see people lifting up their hands during a worship service. 1) Why are they raising their hands? 2) Why don't I raise my hands when I worship? Psa 63:4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. Do you raise your hands during worship? Why/why not? Raising my hands during worship isn't natural for me. What does it mean (if more than the obvious) to raise your hands during worship? In the OT worship, did the people literally raise their hands during worship?
