Strong’s concordance states that amen is Hebrew אָמֵן meaning so be it, truth.
From 'aman; sure; abstract, faithfulness; adverb, truly – Amen, so be it, truth.

Yes. So be it. Let it be. I speak my agreement of this prayer.


phylles Amen means I believe

There once was a kid who explained that Amen is like the Send button on an text message (or an email message for us older people). You recite your prayer and then hit that Amen to launch it heavenward. :arrow_up:

It is the truth!
