Why do people end their prayers with amen?

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.
