Psalm 63:Psalm 63:2–4 (NRSV): 2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. 3 Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. 4 So I will bless you as long as I live; I will lift up my hands and call on your name.
A mentor of mine once said, “If it’s in the Bible it’s Lutheran”. Our people are not much for outward expression of worship… like lifting up our hands. But it is most definitely a biblical practice. Lord help us to let go of cultural inhibitors to your praise. Amen.
