The Amen Corner

by Barbara Casey

How do you end a prayer? Someone asked me this the other day and I said quickly, ‘Well, Amen is my usual.’ I couldn’t leave it there though and so I went looking for more. Amen may be the most familiar but try one of the following next time you pray:

Alleluia (Hebrew)

Blessed Be (In the Feminist tradition)

Kyrie Eleison (Lord Have Mercy)

Namaste  (The light within me honors the light within you.)

Om (Hindu and the most sacred word in Hinduism)


Shanti (Peace in Sanskrit) 

Choose one of these or maybe a different one each time you pray.  It’s  your final word after all!
