<<so be it>>

An affirmation or agreement often used at the conclusion of a declaration of praise or prayer to God, affirming the words and invoking the fulfillment of them (Ps 41:13; Rom 15:33). Amen literally means 'so be it'. It is expressing our desire to God, please let it be as we have prayed – remember all prayers should be prayed according to what we believe is the will of God. “In Christ all the promises of God have been fulfilled; they are true and sure” (2 Cor 1:20). In wholehearted agreement “All the people said Amen!” (1 Chr 16:36).
