The Clapping of Hands - To clap your hands is, according to Scripture, another valid way of expressing worship unto God.
Clapping of hands is a universal expression of joy. If there is any valid reason at all for joy,
it is to be found in the privilege of coming into His presence and worshiping Him with our whole hearts.
"O clap your hands all ye people; shout unto God with a voice of triumph." Psalm 47:1.
The Lifting of Hands - Hands lifted can mean many things. It can be a physical response to the joy we feel in our God.
It may also express our total surrender to God as we worship Him.
Whatever it may mean to the individual, the lifting of our hands is a valid expression of
worship and is very Biblical.
"Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord." Psalm 134:1.
"Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy Name." Psalm 63:4.
"I will, therefore, that men pray everywhere lifing up holy hands without wrath and doubting." 1 Timothy 2:8.
