I had to run a poll on twitter to know whether people thought this was a High Five emoji or a Prayer Emoji.
The emoji has been widely used across social media as a symbol of prayer. However, some users have given it a different meaning; a high five — a hand gesture that occurs when two people simultaneously raise one hand each.
According to Emojipedia, This Emoji has two hands placed firmly together 🙏 , meaning please or thank you in Japanese culture. A common alternative use for this emoji is for prayer, using the same gesture as praying hands.
A search of the high five on my keyboard emojis and the prayer emoji shows the 🙏 is a high five or highfive emoji.

The Emoji might appear differently on other devices but still holds the same meaning.
This Emoji can still have different meanings just as there is a contextual meaning for some words in sentences as their original meaning. So one can still use this emoji as a sign of prayer or gratitude depending on the conversation but per the original meaning of the emoji, it is not a prayer emoji but a High Five Emoji.
