Catechesis: Amen

But all depends upon this, that we learn also to say "Amen." This means that we do not doubt that our prayer is surely heard and that what we pray for shall be done.—LC III:119

"How can I dare to be so bold as to boast that God hears my prayer? I am but a poor sinner" and other such things. The reason for this is, they do not respect God's promise but rely on their own work and worthiness, by which they despise God and accuse Him of lying. Therefore, they receive nothing.—LC III:121, 122
