The God of peace (Rom 15:33)

“The God of peace

Be with you all.

Amen.”

ὁ δὲ Θεὸς τῆς εἰρήνης μετὰ πάντων ὑμῶν· ἀμήν.

Paul finally said that the God of peace (ὁ δὲ Θεὸς τῆς εἰρήνης) should be with you all (μετὰ πάντων ὑμῶν).  Amen (ἀμήν).  Paul ended this prayer with a blessing.  He wanted the God of peace to be with all of them.  Was this a direct reference to God the Father or God the Son, Jesus Christ?  He also used the Jewish “Amen”, “so be it”, that was common in Hebrew prayers, like the psalms.  It looks like Paul has finished his letter to the Romans with this blessing prayer.  Do you pray to the God of peace?
