2 Cor. 1:20 Amen!

For in him every one of God’s promises is a “Yes.” For this reason it is through him that we say the “Amen,” to the glory of God.”

Most of us end our prayers by saying “Amen,” a sign that our prayer is done and our conversation with God is over. But is that all the word amen means? I love how the catechism talks about how we end our prayers, it’s about confidence and hope, that we  carry on with our day knowing that God is listening to our prayers and knows even better than we do what we need, and that we trust he will provide for us whatever we need. Prayer not only connects us to God, it also increases our confidence and trust in God, allowing us to say with gusto, “Amen,” so let it be!

 

Q. What does that little word “Amen” express?

A. “Amen” means: This shall truly and surely be! It is even more sure that God listens to my prayer than that I really desire what I pray for.
