Speech Preparation

There are many stories that stress careful preparation for a presentation you must deliver.  Here is one of my favorites.

There was once a preacher who got into the pulpit week after week relying on the Holy Spirit to tell him everything he was to say.  Each Sunday before entering the pulpit, he would pray, “Lord, give me your message for this morning.  What do you have to say to your servant?”

Finally, one Sunday just before he got up, he said again, “Lord, give me your message for this morning.  What do you have to say to your servant?”

And the Lord finally answered him, “You’re not prepared!”
