Hands Lifted Up — 7 Comments

  1. Thank you for this perspective on lifting hands in prayer or praise–I, too, grew up in a pretty reserved faith tradition, so it seems weird to me to lift my hands in prayer. But you’ve given me something to think and pray about. Maybe God wants me to lift my hands in prayer and praise as a sign I don’t think I can do it all on my own (I get stuck in the I-can-do-it-myself trap all too often).

    • I know that I-can-do-it-all-myself trap! God’s been working on disentangling me from that this season – I like what I’ve been discovering. We probably all have various reasons for shying away from lifting hands. That there were over 20 scriptures mentioning it arrested my attention. Thanks for stopping by, Anita – and joining the converstion.

  2. “In the giving up of my hands, I learned to give Him the challenges, like the ones that dropped me to my knees on the floor of my closet.” So true, Maryleigh. How I thank god for the many lessons children and grandchildren bring to our lives. As we lift our hands to our Father, He is reaching down His hands to us!

  3. “Hands Up! I surrender!” What a beautiful testimony you give here, Maryleigh. This message ministers to me particularly because of my One Word this year of Release. Thanks for sharing.
