Why Amen Word Is Used At The End Of Prayer

Amen , amen and amen (Hebrew אָמֵן, Greek ἀμήν, Arabic آمين) is a term first found in the Hebrew Bible and subsequently in the New Testament that indicates an affirmation or accession with that conclude many prayers in the great monotheistic religions: Christianity , Islam and Judaism . It is customary to translate the meaning of the word into Portuguese as “so be it”.

The word amen , however, has no direct translation, as it is not exactly a word, but initial letters ( alef-mem-nun ) of an acrogram.

The word consists of three letters in Hebrew: אָמֵן . This acronym synthesizes the phrase “God, King, Faithful”, which in Hebrew reads El Melech Neeman . That is EMN, which can be written in Hebrew with the same letters as Amen or Amen. For Jews, this expression is considered to have an incalculable strength during their prayers, and is taken as an essential part of the community’s response during the daily rite.

In the history of religions and in their common use, most people, since ancient times, in their daily prayers or not, at home, in churches on the streets, in short, in any place of worship, not only in Brazil, but also abroad when they finish the prayer ritual they automatically pronounce the word “Amen”, which is taught as “so be it” or as a concordance with what was said and which sometimes becomes almost like a mantra.

The use of Amen [ 1 ] [ edit edit source code ]

The expression Amen was commonly used in two positions in the sentence, at the beginning or at the end.

At the beginning of a sentence, the “amen” gives strength to the truth of the statement made. An example is described in John 3: 3, in the saying of Jesus: “In truth, in truth” or “amen, amen, tedigo …” .

At the end of a sentence, its use confirms what is said, with the meaning of “it will be so” or “so be it”, as in Paul’s writing, when he says: “Now to our God and Father be the glory , forever and ever, amen. This use is more common in spiritist practice.

At www.kryon.com and, or, www.kryonportugues.com, there is a more appropriate version for the word amen, giving it the meaning of “presence in the now” and not the future, as its symbology of so be, refers. It is the expression Thus It is, used by Kryon, with the purpose that what it refers to is and always was and will be in the eternal temporal now, forwards, or, backwards, in eternity.
