Amen

 

In thinking about saying Amen, I decided to look into the meaning again.

Amen is a word that came to English from Latin, which got it from Greek, which got it from Aramaic, which got it from Hebrew and they say that technically, Aramaic may have had it anyway, before it became the standard language of the Jewish people a few centuries before the time of Christ. Honestly, I don't know. I wasn't there and I have not done a language study. I'm just curious what we think we are saying when we say, Amen.

When one says "amen" in response to a prayer, it serves as an affirmation of agreement with the content of the prayer. 

So be it.

Amen=I believe it will be so.

Faith can be born only after hearing God speaking to us first. Only then can we say, “Amen."

Just my little thought for the day.
