Amen and Amen

Finally, mark this, that you must always speak the Amen firmly. Never doubt that God in his mercy will surely hear you and say “yes” to your prayers. Never think that you are kneeling or standing alone, rather think that the whole of Christendom, all devout Christians, are standing there beside you and you are standing among them in a common, united petition which God cannot disdain. Do not leave your prayer without having said or thought, “Very well, God has heard my prayer; this I know as a certainty and a truth.” That is what Amen means.

    I sent a message to you a few weeks ago. Since, however, it was connected to an old article of yours (Feb 20, 2006) on Clowney’s book, ‘Preaching Christ in All of Scripture’, I wonder if you have missed it. I was drawing your attention to my blog – http://www.christinallthescriptures.blogspot.com It contains Bible Reading Notes I have written. The full set covers the whole of Scripture.
