“Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful [Amen]God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations.” (Deuteronomy 7:9)
“Amennnnn, sister! I agree,” I yelled. I was affirming my friend whole-heartedly with the word, Amen. Amen is a term that shows you agree. Yet, it has lost its significance in my prayer life.
All of our lives are a series of habits and once they become habits, we often stop thinking about why we do them.
For example: have you ever thought about why you end every prayer with the word, “amen?”
Amen can be translated as, “so shall it be.” Some English translations said, “truly or verily.” It can also be used as a descriptor for God as, “true or faithful.” (Like in the passage above)
Amen solidifies your confidence in God. Amen declares, “I believe you will do this.” Amen points to God’s reliability and faithfulness.
So, if you started your prayers today with a desperate plea, or you’re asking God for something, or maybe you are simply praising him. Remember when you end your prayers today that “Amen” is affirming that you believe in Faith that God will do it, and he will be right there to see you through it.
