Take Words With You (5th edition) by Tim Kerr is a manual for intercession to help us pray scriptural prayers and promises.
The final step is Faith Affirmations. This is probably the most widely neglected aspect of prayer that is taught in the Bible. Most people practice a very condensed form of faith affirmation whenever they say 'amen' at the end of their prayers, though they may still not know what that means. The word 'amen' means 'let it be so'. It’s a way of punctuating the end of our prayers with a demonstration of faith in God. There are hundreds of faith affirmations throughout the Scriptures but they are found particularly in the Psalms. They are neither requests nor strictly words of praise. They are instead declarations about God and what he will do. They are verbal declarations of trust. They are expanded 'amens' if you will. These faith declarations speak faith but also grow our faith when we use them.
The exclamation point expresses declarations of confident faith that stand on Scripture truths when in prayer.
