When you lift your hands in worship, you are raising your hands in yadah to the Lord. The Hebrew word yadah means to extend your hand (throw out the hand).
As our hands are extended, we are saying, “Lord, I am Your child, and I am reaching out to You. I surrender my life to You, Father.”
Do that now. Lift up your hands and express your love to God. As you worship Him, you will take your focus off yourself and your problems.
Then your praise will set a peaceful atmosphere in your life and allow you to clearly hear the voice of the One who called you out of darkness and into His marvelous light!
Bible verses about lifting hands

Then Ezra blessed the LORD the great God. And all the people answered, "Amen, Amen!" while lifting up their hands; then they bowed low and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground (Nehemiah 8:6).
And I shall lift up my hands to Your commandments, Which I love; And I will meditate on Your statutes (Psalm 119:48).
