It's not enough to be skilled with words or know the Bible. It takes the anointing of the Holy Spirit to press the truths of God into men's hearts.
Ask God to take the words of the preacher and make them real as only He can. When God speaks, things are created, hearts are changed.
Isa 11:2 The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him-the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.
Lord, You have the name that is above all names. You are Lord forever and there is no one who can challenge Your authority and power. You rule for ever and ever, and there is no end to Your Kingdom.
Lord, I ask that Your spirit of wisdom and understanding would rest on Your servants
. That Your wisdom would fill their mouths, as they seek to counsel and instruct others. Anoint Your servants
's words to confront the lies of the enemy, and to reinforce the truth of Your Word. Empower their counsel to reach deep into the heart, setting captives free, and releasing them to walk in the fear of the Lord.
