Lift Up Hearts and Hands

February 21, 2010

Lamentations 3:40-41 AMP
Let us test and examine our ways, and let us return to the Lord! Let us lift up our hearts and our hands [and then with them mount up in prayer] to God in heaven.

1 Timothy 2:8
I desire therefore that in every place men should pray, without anger or quarreling or resentment or doubt [in their minds], lifting up holy hands.

Who shall go up into the mountain of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His Holy Place?

He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted himself up to falsehood or to what is false, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation. -Ps 24:3-5

Let my prayer be set forth as incense before You, the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. -Ps 141:2

I spread out my hands to You;
My soul longs for You like a thirsty land.
Answer me speedily, O LORD;
My spirit fails!
Do not hide Your face from me,
Lest I be like those who go down into the pit.
Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning,
For in You do I trust;
Cause me to know the way in which I should walk,
For I lift up my soul to You. -Ps 143:6-8

Lift up your hands in holiness and to the sanctuary and bless the Lord [affectionately and gratefully praise Him]! -Ps 134:2

So will I bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. -Ps 63:4
