61 Your Name is Written on the Palm of God’s Hands

May 13, 2022

Why do we say "AMEN" at the end of our prayers? What repercussions does it have for our life? “Amen” expresses both God’s faithfulness and man’s trust in God’s promises. To say “amen” implies believing and trusting in God's fidelity—an attitude that is not commonly found in the world today.
