Here is a Biblical worldview question. Ready? As a way to end a prayer, where in the Bible does it teach a believer to say, “Amen”? It doesn’t. In fact, where does the Bible instruct us to end our prayer at all? It doesn’t.
The fact that we do both comes from a Christian worldview, not a biblical one. The Bible states in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 to pray continually. When Jesus taught His disciples how to pray (see Matt. 6:5-15; Lk. 11:1-4), He never tells them to stop talking!
As children of God through faith in Jesus we are now in a relationship with a personal God, who wants a running conversation with His children. Our walks with God will not become an unsatisfying mechanical religion if we are in constant connection with our Father. Because Jesus keeps the communication lines open, we can stay in God’s presence wherever we go throughout our day. It’s as we stay in His presence that we can be satisfied and at peace.
The world in general has had enough of mechanical religion. What they crave is a God who actually cares about them and their everyday lives. Will they see Him in you and me?
