(Week of December 8-December 14, 2019)
The Lord’s Prayer ends with the word “Amen.” This word means “Yes, yes, I know it will be so”. We pray confidently because we know Jesus takes our prayers to God, the Heavenly Father. We know that He wants good things for us, as Paul reminds us in Romans 8:1 (There is therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus)
So, we say “Amen! Yes, I believe my prayer is heard by my gracious God!
Your Pastor and Friend,
