"I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting," 1 Timothy 2'8. Elders in particular are to be like this.
Those who ask Elders to pray for them should be confident their Elders are right before the Lord. Being acceptable to God makes the fervent prayers of a righteous man effective (James 5'16).
The hands that are laid on Believers should be holy.
Prayer. Heavenly Father, thank you for the powerful ministry of laying on hands and anointing. Restore these Kingdom blessings, Lord.
In Jesus' name. Amen.
