AMEN

Recently I have been reflecting on how we end prayers with “Amen.”  Wat if instead of ending a prayer in Amen, we started a prayer with Amen?

The Greek definition of the word AMEN=So be it.  In Hebrew there are two similar words, “eman” meaning, “to confirm” and the word, “haemeen” meaning “to trust.”

In order to say let it be, or so be it, we are saying, we confirm, we agree, we trust in You God.  Our relationship with God is two ways.  He designed it this way.  He wants to hear from us, even if He knew it all before, we came into this life.  We know through The Bible and by faith that God knows all and understands everything.  He knew, He knows, He sees before it happens, and yet He chooses to hear from us.  He chooses to have two way fellowship with us and hear our hearts cry and connect with us, because He loves us.  I wonder how it would be to start praying “Amen,” first. 

“Lord let it be, your will be done.” = “Amen”   Being inline and agreeing with His perfect and good will for our lives first.  Praying God I want my spirit to align with Your spirit.  We find an example of this in Matthew when the disciples asked, “How do we pray?”  Its in the first lines, “Your kingdom come, your will be done….”  It is the same as starting with Amen.  Then with thanksgiving, through faith, present our hearts, our petitions before Him.  Believing in faith what we seek after as we seek Him first, it will be given in Jesus name.
