What do we confess with the closing words of the Lord´s Prayer?

Share |

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen. What is meant by the word “Amen”? That I should be certain that these petitions are acceptable to our Father in heaven, and are heard by Him; for He Himself has commanded us so to pray, and has promised to hear us. Amen, Amen, that is, Yea, yea, it shall be so.

With the closing words of the Lord’s Prayer, we confess that everything that we pray for is under God’s control, and that to Him belongs all honor and thanks for His fatherly care and guidance.

1 Chron. 29:11: Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty; for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is Thine; Thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and Thou art exalted as head above all.
