While yellow is the default color of this emoji, there are other skin colors that the user can choose from. This emoji is often used to express that the sender is praying. This can be in the literal sense of praying to their religion’s god, but it can also simply mean that the sender is wishing for something in general. It can be a sign of hope or faith, depending on the context. This emoji can also be used to express gratitude or thanks as this is the gesture, paired with a bow, in Japan. Some also use this emoji to express a high-five. However, this is less common as there are other emojis that can better express this.
