Breathing is the most important vital and basic function of human life and that is why it is significant to spiritual life. If the laying on of hands, which employs the power of touch, has spiritual implications then breathing must have a spiritual effect on people. The basis for operating by breath lies in the fact that during the creation of man, God breathed into him.
The laying on of hands is a spiritual process by which hands are laid on people for the transfer of spiritual virtue, gifts and blessings. The practice of laying on of hands is an ancient tradition which began in the Old Testament, continued in the ministry of Christ and in the New Testament Church and is in practice in the Church today.
