The greatest thing any one can do for God and for man is to pray. It is not the only thing. But it is the chief thing. A correct balancing of the possible powers one may exert puts it first. For if a man is to pray right, he must first be right in his motives and life. And if a man be right, and put the practice of praying in its right place, then his serving and giving and speaking will be great with the presence of God. The word 'Amen' is a Hebrew word meaning firm and faithful. The literal translation is 'so be it' and is used where one person confirms the words of another, and adds his wish for success to the other's vows and predictions.
