Some More Posturing on Prayer

Nehemiah reports on a worship assembly after Jewish exiles returned home to Jerusalem and rebuilt their temple:
Ezra praised YHWH, the great God; and all the people lifted their hands and responded, "Amen! Amen!" Then they bowed down and worshiped YHWH with their faces to the ground.
Why is it, ya reckon, that my church culture is so against raising of hands in prayer?
