How do you say good-bye?

See ya later, Alligator! In a while, Crocodile! In an hour, Sunflower! Gotta Go, Buffalo!

There are a million ways we can say good-bye. Yet, we always use the same word when we end our conversations with God. At the end of our prayers, all God’s children say “Amen”!

What does that even mean?

Amen is a Hebrew word which means “to confirm”.

When you say amen, you are saying “so be it”. You are in agreement with everything that has been said and are confirming it in your life.

That’s why people sometimes shout “Amen!” in the middle of a church service. They are agreeing with the truth of what the preacher had just said! 

When it comes to saying good-bye, I can’t think of a better way to end my prayers than Amen. It really isn’t a good-bye because we never say good-bye to God. Instead, it’s a confirmation of our conversation.

Here is a long list of creative ways to say good-bye in text messages, e-mails, letters, and any other sort of conversation… other than prayers. Amen is still the best.
