LAYING ON OF HANDS

 LAYING ON OF HANDS


The laying on of hands is a symbolic act to represent God Himself to the person who is being prayed for, setting them aside to impart spiritual blessing (Genesis 48:14 to 20; Matthew 19:13 to 15); to impart the Lord’s authority (Numbers 27:18 to 23); to be given a special divine task or holy service (Numbers 8:14; Acts 6:1 to 7; 9:12 & 15); to impart healing (Mark 16:18; Acts 28:8); to receive baptism in the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:17; 19:6); to impart Spiritual gifts (1 Timothy 4:14); to send out missionaries (Acts 13:3); to appoint church leaders (Acts 14:23); or to speak an individual prophecy or a word of knowledge (1 Timothy 4:14).
