Amen. Amen is the last word of a prayer, and it means “so be it.” It is an expression of agreement or assent, meaning that you agree with what’s being said. The word comes from Hebrew and literally means “certainty,” which indicates its use in prayers, where you can express your certainty about something by saying amen.

Amen is also used as an affirmation: when someone says amen or agrees with what you’ve said, you can say “amen” back to them as a way of saying thanks for their support. In this case, it will often be followed by your own personal statement of agreement (“amen!”).
