Everyone is familiar with the word amen. But have you ever taken the time to consider what it really means? Is ending our prayers with amen a mere ritual? Or is there a majestic richness to the word that we often miss? Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the π˜‰π˜ͺ𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘈𝘯𝘴𝘸𝘦𝘳 π˜”π˜’π˜― broadcast and the 𝘏𝘒𝘯𝘬 𝘜𝘯𝘱𝘭𝘢𝘨𝘨𝘦π˜₯ podcast, says amen is a universally recognized word that is far more significant than simply signing off or saying, β€œThat’s all.” With the word amen we are in effect saying, β€œMay it be so in accordance with the will of God.” It is a marvelous reminder that prayer is a means of bringing us into conformity with God’s will, not a magic mantra that ensures God’s conformity to ours.
