Should I put my hands on a disabled person to pray for them?

Say a Quiet Prayer

If you are in a place of worship, show respect to those with disabilities by saying a quiet prayer rather than approaching them and putting your hands upon them to pray. In most cases, the person has accepted their disability, is leading a normal life, and does not wish to be "pointed out" for their disability. It can be extremely embarrassing to all those concerned.
