Gloves are a good idea

Wearing a pair of gloves when you are using a power kite is a good idea. Especially when you are first starting out and are not completely in control of it. As the picture below shows the constant use without gloves can wear your fingers away.

You can buy covers which go over the handles and lines which stop any contact between your fingers and the lines.

You can also buy specially made gloves for power kiting but in most cases you can get away with a normal pair.

Your fingers can also go numb for a couple of days and doing this constantly can make it permanent. Not good!
